My Uncle Lorenzo told me about this stocking story that hit the net last week. In the video below you see the is the horrifying moment a millionaire convicted of burning down his $3.5 million mansion poisoned himself in court.
As the guilty verdict was read out, Michael Marin closed his eyes and held his head in his hands before appearing to slip something into his mouth.
Minutes later, the 53-year-old collapsed to the floor in convulsions and died.
The shocking scenes were caught on camera in Maricopa County Superior Court in Arizona, where Marin had been on trial since May.
The father-of-four torched his mansion in Phoenix on July 5, 2009, because, prosecutors claimed, he could no longer afford the mortgage.
Fire Department investigators concluded that the blaze was started deliberately after finding several points of origin throughout the sprawling 6,600 sq ft home, which boasted four garages.
Marin was found outside the burning property after climbing from a second floor bedroom using a rope ladder and wearing scuba diving gear, according to Fox News. READ MORE

Carey also spoke on seeing the 48-year-old for the last time, while overseas. “Even then folks were surprised to see us sitting next to each other, clearly enjoying each others’ company.
