Don't try to fake your own death
There's a story on CNN about Marcus Schrenker who tried to fake his own death by crashing a plane. He was sentenced to four years in prison. Why would anyone want to fake his/her own death? In this case, Schrenker was charged in Indiana with one felony count of an unlawful act by a compensated adviser and unlawful transaction by an investment adviser. Authorities said they think he defrauded investors through three companies he owns.
According to the CNN story, Schrenker apparently had cuts on his wrists from a suicide attempt. I wonder if that happened after he realized that his plans had failed. Or, was he in such emotional and mental distress that he acted irrationally? Was he sane? In any case, he will have some time to think about his mistakes. I hope he learns from his mistakes and changes his life. Read the CNN story here.
