George Scott III Wiki – George Scott III Biography
George Scott III, 53, was discovered dead shortly after 8 a.m. at his home in New Bedford, Massachusetts after police received a request to conduct a wellness check.
They came to find Scott and Dante, both of whom were dead on the ground. A spokesman for the local district attorney said that they believed Scott killed the boy – who was living with him – before taking his own life. DA Thomas Quinn said they found several knives at the scene that they took in as evidence. Scott III is the son of the late Boston Red Sox player George Scott, who hit 271 home runs across a 14-year career in the majors. The younger Scott had also tried to become a professional ballplayer, going through various minor league teams in the 1990s. ‘One of the best athletes I’ve ever seen,’ Scott III said of his father. ‘He could have got drafted by the NBA and the NFL. Baseball was the ‘least good’ sport he played. He was definitely a legend.’ The 8-year-old boy is the son of Lisa Hazard, a woman who went missing back in March 2019, according to the Boston Globe.
A spokesperson for the Bristol County DA said that Scott was considered a person of interest in her disappearance.
George Scott III was 53 years old.

‘This, obviously, is a tragic situation that may be a development in the case but we’ve got to review the evidence in this case,’ Quinn said, referencing both cases. Just two weeks earlier, the district attorney’s office had executed a search warrant at the same home. According to a Facebook page hoping to find Hazard, she was last seen after leaving her mother’s home in Fall River on March 5, 2019. This group was created in hopes that it will provide more information on Lisa and get her back home. It is very unlike of her not to contact her family, especially her son who is her whole world,’ the page said.
Family members said in 2019 that Hazard was in recovery from drug addiction but had become erratic. She started missing important dates, like my mom’s birthday or her son’s birthday, or Mother’s Day, and that’s really uncharacteristic of Lisa because she has always been all about the family, especially her son,’ her brother Steven told NBC 10 last October.
The man found dead with her 8-year-old son was not mentioned in the story. Scott III was last heard from in 2021 when he was presenting an NFT collection that featured his father, a member of the Boston Red Sox Hall of Fame. He’d also launched a Twitter page for a podcast called Boomer’s Base, referencing his late father’s nickname. No episodes appear to have been released. DailyMail.com has reached out to the Bristol County District Attorney’s Office and Hazard’s family for further comment.
