ORANGE BEACH, Ala. (WPMI) — We uncovered new information about the accused child molester that apparently tried to fake his own death
Jacob Scott has been on the run since last year trying to avoid charges in Jackson County, Mississippi.
He's accused of raping and impregnating a 14-year-old.
Scott was due in court, but his vehicle and boat were found abandoned in Orange Beach 6 months ago along with a suicide note.
Investigators believe that move was to thrown them off his scent.
Scott was recently been spotted in Denver where he has family.
The Biloxi Sun Herald reports U.S. Marshals are now focusing their search for Jacob Scott in the Beaumont, Texas area where his father lives.
