    Multi-state search for accused child molester who faked his own death in Orange Beach (WPMI)

    Could you even imagine a man raping and impregnating his 14 year old step daughter, the mother of that child can't come to grips with it either.

    "How could a father sexually abuse a child, i just couldn't understand that."

    That is Jacob Scott, just days before he was set to plead guilty to committing this heinous crime-- and facing life in prison.. he disappeared.

    In July of last year, his dingy was spotted about a mile off Orange Beach, his car abandoned at the Cotton Bayou boat launch. Police say Scott faked his own suicide. An empty boat, a suicide note, a bloody bullet, a gun "conveniently" tied to a string... But their was no other blood.. no brain matter or skin found on-board.

    "It seemed somewhat staged while we were there. We discovered there was a large amount of money withdrew from his account shortly before this happened," said Lt. Carl bradley | Orange Beach Police Department.

    To the tune of $45,000 taken from his retirement account. Evidence showed some of that money later spent in Florida.

    Then a reported sighting of Scott in Denver Colorado.. his family there, saying they think he's dead.. authorities don't buy it.

    "Anybody who is a danger to children needs to be off the streets," said Katrina Crouse, Deputy US Marshal.

    US Marshals continue to track down justice on his trail now in the Beaumont Texas area-- where his father lives.. tonight, the gauntlet around depraved child rapist Jacob Scott continues to tighten.
