2009_11_16_scott.jpg Two and a half weeks after the body of Chicago Public Schools Board of Education President Michael Scott was pulled from the Chicago River, the Chicago Police Department still isn't ready to issue it's ruling in his death. CPD superintendent Jody Weis said today, "The one question we may never have an answer for is why this happened, but it¹s important we talk to every person." NBC 5 has more details, but reports that, so far, all the evidence collected supports the Cook County Medical Examiner's office ruling that Scott's death was a suicide.
