CHICAGO — Autopsy results show that the president of the Chicago Board of Education committed suicide by shooting himself in the head.
The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office released Michael Scott’s autopsy results Monday. Police officers who rushed to the Chicago River early Monday in response to a report of a body being spotted found Scott dead.
Scott was a longtime Chicago leader who served on the Chicago 2016 Olympic Committee. In August, Scott said he’d been subpoenaed to testify before a federal grand jury investigating allegations of politically influenced admissions to top schools.
