Police Confirm Suicide Arsonist Took Sodium Cyanide In Court

| Filed under: Legal MattersR.I.P.Sad Sad

Meh. At times like this we honestly don't enjoy being right.

Investigators just confirmed what we already reported was likely — Michael Marin, the convicted arsonist who died on camera in the courtroom — killed himself by ingesting a poison sodium cyanide pill.

Maricopa County Sheriffs found a bottle of the poison in his car which was purchased off the internet sometime last year.

The disgraced Wall Street hotshot also sent a delayed e-mail to his son before the verdict was read, talking about locations of wills and belongings should the courtroom outcome prove unfavorable.

We know Michael was a criminal but the video (above) of him killing himself as if there was no other recourse is still tragic.

No matter what mistakes a person makes, suicide is never the answer.

    "No matter what mistakes a person makes, suicide is never the answer." Really? I think that every person should have the right to take what belongs to him or her; it's MY life and if I want it to end, the government shouldn't have a say in it. Nor should some flamer gay guy who doesn't have a brain cell in his head and who is a lazy fuck who deludes himself into thinking his opinions matter. Suicide IS the answer to some. It may be extreme, but at least I can empathize and try to not judge. You'd do well to STFU and do the same, ass clown.

    I can't believe you're posting this video again and again I won't look at it. You're using the suicide of this guy to get traffic on your website GROSS.

    Suicide is NEVER the answer? I tend to disagree and think it's sometimes those who are really brave who commit suicide. Terminally ill patients is what I have in mind. It has to be the most gut wrenching decision of a lifetime but having known 2 who did just that, I understand why they chose that route. NEVER is such an exclusive word and I don't believe it applies. Even in this case where a convicted felon chose to spare tax payers $ and his family a lifetime of harassment and himself the pain of incarceration and humilation.

    Re: Yes You Bore Me – I agree, why don't you exercise your right to off yourself.

    Re: antonio rodriguez – slitting wrists is not the best option, but your choice. remember to cut length wise, not just accross the grain. that being said, think about it a while, i've been there and came out the other side.

    one little mistake can screw with your whole life forever in this country. you're not even able to get a job because of your credit history. suicide is the only answer for a lot of people in this country.

    Hmm being sentenced to 19+ years in prison for burning down his own home,putting no one in danger, besides himself. Rapists and murderers don't even rot in prison for that long. But they aren't trying to get out of paying the government, so its fine

    Re: antonio rodriguez – Don't kill yourself if you are still in reasonably good health and have your freedom. Get some help and remember you are loved!

    Perez, I find it pretty disturbing that you posted the VIDEO of this on your website. To get clicks and pageviews? That is unreal. You have stooped below human compassion before, but this is just crossing the line.

    I will NOT be back to your website and I encourage others to leave it, too.

    www . jezebel . com is another option for you all.

    You don't have to make mistakes to consider the option of suicide. His presence or absence from this life CERTAINLY wont impact anyone of us here in any significant way. Therefore, we should not concern ourselves with his decision to exercise his own right to end his own life. For some people, death is one of the best gifts the Creator has given to us.
