About Scott Dozier

Scott Raymond Dozier (; November 20, 1970 – January 5, 2019) was an American murderer on death row in Nevada for the 2002 murder of 22-year-old Jeremiah Miller, who was one of Dozier's drug associates. He would have been the first inmate executed by the state of Nevada in more than a decade, but committed suicide in prison before this could take place after a lengthy battle to carry out his death sentence by the state.

Death

Dozier had been on suicide watch for several months. According to his lawyers, his mental state had deteriorated due to deprivation of personal belongings and outside contact. On January 5, 2019, Dozier was found dead in his death-row cell at the Ely State Prison in Ely, Nevada, having hanged himself from a bed sheet attached to an air vent in the cell. Dozier was 48 years old at the time of his death.
