Husband of Misty Scott Arrested in Kentucky

The investigation continues into the death of 20-year-old Misty Page Scott, who was found dead in a pond on Murray Hill Lane, Sunday, March 28, but in a strange turn of events, her husband, Cody Scott, a person of interest in this case, has been arrested and is being held without bond in the Barren County Kentucky Correctional Center, on unrelated drug charges.

The Macon County Sheriffs Department responded to the scene of a DOA eight days ago, where they discovered the lifeless body of Misty Scott, who was a certified nurse’s aid, in a nearby pond, after receiving a 911 call from her husband. The young woman evidently went missing after an alleged domestic disturbance earlier in the day. Cody Scott was immediately brought in for questioning but was later released, and the local authorities are continuing their search for evidence regarding her death.

Mr. Scott, age 22, of 350 Murray Hill Lane, was served a Barren County warrant for probable cause-violation of bond conditions and lodged in the Barren County Correctional Center on April 2nd, 2010 with no bond, after being transported from Macon County. He was originally arrested on April 27th, 2009, and served a Barren County warrant on several drug related charges including manufacturing methamphetamine, after officers searched his residence.

Funeral services for Misty Page Scott, of Lafayette, formerly of Glasgow, Kentucky, were held at 3:30 p.m. on Monday, April 5th, at the A.F. Crow & Son Funeral Home, with burial in the Happy Valley Memorial Gardens, in Glasgow.

The daughter of Harold Page and Sherri Tracy Morgan, who survive, she was born on August 10th, 1989, and was a member of the South Fork Baptist Church.

Besides her parents and step father, Ricky Morgan, she is survived by her husband, Cody Scott; two children, Hunter and Holdin Scott; a sister Kristy Mills and husband Keith; a step brother Jeremy Morgan; her grandmother Edith Tracy; her step grandmother Margaret Morgan all of Glasgow and several aunts, uncles and cousins. She was preceded in death by maternal grandfather Barney Tracy and grandparents Darrel and Jerena Page.

The results of the autopsy have still not been released by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.
