Scott, who fled days before he was supposed to plead guilty to 14 counts of child sex abuse in July 2018, was accused of sexually assaulting his 14-year-old stepdaughter, ultimately impregnating her. Shortly after, there were signs of suicide: a gun, a note and some blood drops in a dinghy found in the Gulf of Mexico. Eighteen months later, he was in custody. Hear from those who tracked him down, as well as from a courageous mother and ex-wife who takes us inside her world.
