Son of former Red Sox star George Scott kills his 8-year-old boy before taking own life

The son of former Red Sox first baseman George Scott allegedly killed his 8-year-old boy before turning the gun on himself in their Massachusetts home on Friday, officials said.

“Mr. Scott, who is believed to have killed the boy before taking his own life, was living at the Phillips Road home with the boy,” Gregg Miliote, a DA spokesperson, told The Globe.

Authorities were seen removing evidence from George Scott III’s home on Friday, according to WCVB.

The home where Scott and the boy were found was searched by police just over two weeks ago as authorities investigate the 2019 disappearance of the boy’s mother.
