• Police found Jacob Blair Scott living out of an RV near Antlers, Oklahoma
  • He had reportedly faked his death in July 2018 to avoid being prosecuted for allegedly raping his 14-year-old stepdaughter
  • Police found Scott's boat abandoned off the coast of Alabama with a gun and note, but little evidence of suicide

A Mississippi man who reportedly faked his death to avoid prosecution for allegedly raping his stepdaughter was in custody Thursday after police found him in Antlers, Oklahoma.

Jacob Blair Scott, 43, was arrested Wednesday by the Pushmataha County Sheriff's Office living out of an RV. Police reportedly were tipped off about someone matching Scott’s description in the area. He allegedly was uncooperative when police arrived and denied his identity until police spotted his tattoos.

Scott’s arrest came hours after he was added to the U.S. Marshals' 15 Most Wanted List. He is facing 14 charges including sexual battery, touching a child for lustful purposes, exploitation of a child and unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.

He is being held in Pittsburg County Jail in Oklahoma.

Authorities had been searching for Scott since July 2018 when he didn’t appear for scheduled court hearing. Police found his boat abandoned near Orange Beach, Alabama, with a gun and suicide note. However, investigators said there was little forensic evidence of suicide and his body was never found.

It was later found Scott had withdrawn $45,000 from his bank account just before he disappeared.

Scott, an Iraqi War veteran, was accused of raping his 14-year-old stepdaughter. He allegedly impregnated her and recorded several videos with the teen before he was arrested and charged by Mississippi police in 2018.
