    AZ - Michael Marin charged with burning down his Phoenix mansion, 2009

    Arsonist dies shortly after getting guilty verdict
    Published June 29, 2012
    FoxNews.com

    ...In a scene captured on video, Michael Marin, 53, was clutching a bottle in hand as he stood in a Phoenix courtroom, waiting for a verdict in his arson case. As the verdict is announced, Marin is seen cupping his hands over his head, closing his eyes, and appearing to swallow something. Within minutes, he began convulsing and then collapsed on the Maricopa County courtroom floor. He was sent to the hospital and where he was later pronounced dead.

    Although the video appeared to show Marin committing suicide, the cause of death won't be confirmed until a toxicology report is released in a few weeks....

    That's crazy. Marin was a self described "careful thrill seeker".

    I think he should have gone with self-immolation instead of poison.

    Well immolation is the sincerest form of flattery.

    From the story - he emerged from the mansion he torched wearing......wait for it........SCUBA gear of course. Wonder why the police suspected him?

    I'm Eumtionally Disturbed after watching that video. It sure looked to me like he was taking those pills and had it all planned out. Would like to learn more after the tox reports.

    Admittedly I had to look up what that meant.

    Were his Picasso's in the mansion? We know his wet suit scuba gear wasn't.

    I want to know as well, Shelby1. I think it is already known and do not know why we are not allowed to know as well.

    Whatever it was, it was quick acting... how much you want to bet he took the Leonard Lake (a serial killer) way out: suicide by cyanide pill.

    Could be.


    My husband speculated that it was cyanide, but we both agreed that would be really hard to get...and I don't know if it comes in pill forms.

    It almost immediately causes convulsions and foaming at the mouth IIRC.

    Maybe he OD'd on some kind of heart med? Guy was obviously truly disturbed. IMO
