Gary Scott was a coroner from Haddonfield and the partner of Alan Hooks. In 2007, they were called in to recover the body of the allegedly deceased serial killer Michael Myers. During the car ride back to County, Scott entertained his co-worker by telling him lewd stories about what it would be like to have intercourse with a corpse. After making such an allusion about Lynda Van Der Klok, Scott was warned that such talk would quickly find him unemployed. As the two men chatted, Hooks became distracted and struck a cow that was crossing the road. Hooks was killed immediately while Scott suffered severe injuries. The impact awakened Michael Myers, who emerged from the back of the ambulance and decapitated Gary Scott with a shard of broken glass.
