Former Wall Street Trader Appears to Poison Himself After Conviction

Well, this is a depressing video to watch on a summer Friday! Michael Marin, an ex-Wall Street trader, collapsed in a Phoenix courtroom and died after being convicted of burning down his mansion to get out of debt. Just after the guilty verdict was read, Marin put his hand over his mouth in apparent anguish and seemingly swallowed something. Minutes later, he repeated the action and sipped his drink before starting to convulse. Marin was rushed to the hospital, but it was too late, and police are leaning toward suicide by poison. Judge for yourself, if you must.
