Police were actively investigating the disappearance of George Scott III’s ex-girlfriend Lisa Hazard, who went missing in 2019.
The son of a former Boston Red Sox star was found dead in a New Bedford, Massachusetts home and is believed to be the perpetrator of a murder-suicide that has rocked the small community.
Authorities were conducting a welfare check when they found the bodies of George Scott III, 54 — the son of former Red Sox first baseman George “Boomer” Scott — and his 8-year-old son, Dante Hazard, on Friday, June 2, the Bristol County District Attorney’s Office said in a press release cited by NBC News. A relative of Scott had asked the police to check in on him and his son after days had passed without hearing from them.
“It appears from the evidence recovered at the scene to be a murder-suicide,” the release said. “Mr. Scott appears to have killed the boy with a sharp object before taking his own life. We are awaiting the medical examiner’s confirmation of these and other details.”
