Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. James Robert Scott (born November 20, 1969) was convicted of causing a massive flood of the Mississippi River at West Quincy, Missouri as part of the Great Flood of 1993. He is currently serving a sentence of 20 years to life in a Missouri prison. Scott grew up in Quincy, Illinois. By the time he had reached his 20s, he had already racked up an extensive criminal record and served time in six prisons. While most of these arrests were for petty burglary, they also included two arsons. In 1982, he burned down his elementary school, Webster Elementary School in Quincy. In 1988, he burned down a garage and set several other fires, netting him a sentence of seven years in prison. By 1993, Scott was out of prison on parole for the 1988 fire. He worked at a Burger King in Quincy and spent most of his nights drinking heavily. He lived in the nearby town of Fowler with his wife Suzie.Missouri, Quincy, Burglary, Flood, Illinoisshow more
