The Chicago police would say only that authorities had found the body of an adult male about 3:15 a.m. in the area of 350 N. Orleans St., a road near a waterway in Chicago.
CNN affiliate WGN-TV, citing unnamed police sources, said Scott's family had reported him missing Sunday evening.
WLS-TV also reported that it was Scott's body that emergency crews recovered from the water. A report on the station's Web site did not cite a source but noted that Scott's wife, Diana Palomar, is the station's vice president of community affairs.
Scott had been appointed to the Chicago Board of Education three times, twice as president. He most recently was appointed in February. Previously, Scott was board president for five years, until July 2006.
Scott disclosed in early August that he had been subpoenaed to testify before a federal grand jury investigating how students were chosen for admission to some of Chicago's most elite public schools.
He denied using his influence during two stints as board president to help any student into a selective-enrollment school.
Scott, who was a developer, also was criticized in August when it was revealed that he had quietly arranged to develop city-owned land near a park that would have been used in the 2016 Summer Games. The move would have positioned Scott to cash in, had Chicago been awarded the Olympics.
The 2016 Games were awarded to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

In fact, since the Obama Administration strikes me as just an extension of the Clinton Administration, with Rahm Emmanual still running the show, this is really just an add on Arkancide... The machine is up and running 100%.
So, am I the only one who thinks the same shadow government machine that ran Clinton is also running Obama?
Awwwwwww. Someone didn't get the message....
Awww, Tripod sucks in so many ways.
Politics done Chicago style.
Inigo Montoya: What's that?
Miracle Max: Go through his clothes and look for loose change.
They are allready calling it suicide....hrm...
“believed dead”? I would say floating in the river with a bullet in your head should be considered confirmed dead.
Said the cop to the reporter, "Now I can't say for sure if he is dead or not, but what I can tell you is, he is hurt real bad...
my first thought as well: bamacide
Exactly or just extremely sleeping.
The question that needs to be asked is if the prison being considered for purchase by the federal gov’t in Illinois is owned by an Obama cronie!
He’s pining for the fjords ...
....begin the Obama body count
.. or the body hasn’t been positively identified
Satchmo: Dja hear, Sammy Altwater died?
Bandmember: What was wrong with him?
Satchmo: When you dead, everythin’s wrong wid ya.
When will the other shoe fall?
>> ....begin the Obama body count <<
We need to post the clip of Beck doin’ the “Chicago Speech with the baseball bat” You know what im talkin’ about?
Apparently Emanuel’s dead-fish mail greeting didn’t get his attention.
I wonder if this guy was about to go public about something negative pertaining to the Annenberg Challenge..
did he jump and shoot himself in the back of the head twice on the way down with a gun they’ll never find?
“Someone didn’t get the message....”
Now he swims with the fishes...freshwater fishes.
What to make of this ? RIP.
My mom told me she drove right by there, saw them towing his car and the tv vans.
My brothers both independently joked (or not) that Daley must have had him rubbed out.
If I wanted to off myself my plans sure wouldn’t involve that cold, gross river.
