Ex-banker’s courtroom suicide

Michael Marin, a 53-year-old Wall Street trader and father of four from Phoenix, Arizona, killed himself in court during the reading of his guilty verdict. Marin was on trial for insurance fraud after a forensic investigation of the aftermath of his 3.5 million dollar mansion burning down indicated arson. Potentially facing a sentence of up to 21 years in prison, Marin swallowed a cyanide tablet he had purchased online and concealed during the trial and died within minutes. The incident was recorded on video and has since been made available on the Internet.
