Phoenix, AZToxicology results from Michael Marin’s autopsy indicate that he did, indeed, intentionally kill himself immediately after his verdict was handed down.  His method of choice?  Glad you asked.  Cyanide.

I wrote this story up soon after Marin collapsed and died in an Arizona courtroom immediately following the reading of his guilty verdict.  I’d tell the story again, but I did such a masterful job the first time, I’ll request that you simply read it here.

It’s difficult to watch the video of Marin’s final moments without believing that he placed something in his mouth and washed it down with the contents of a bottle he’d carried into the courtroom with him.  The toxicology results now leave little doubt.

There are two shocking parts of this story for me.  The first is that he opted to off himself before he’d even been sentenced.  The maximum would have been 21 years, and I’d imagine an appeal would have been a no-brainer.  Something tells me that there’s a bit more information about his situation that I don’t currently possess.

The second is that he was facing 21 years for burning down his own house when there was no one else in the home and seemingly no threat of injury to anyone else.
