QUINCY, Fla. (AP) - Authorities in northern Florida say they have found an Indiana businessman believed to have tried to fake his own death in a plane crash.
Gadsden County Sheriff's Office Lt. Jim Corder says 38-year-old Marcus Schrenker is alive and in custody in Gadsden County Tuesday night. Authorities believe Schrenker let his plane crash in the Florida panhandle and apparently parachuted to safety over Birmingham, Alabama.
Before the crash, Schrenker's life was spiraling downward: His wife filed for divorce, and his financial management companies were under investigation.
