U.S. National who committed suicide in PG scammed his victims

In the last week of April 2011, two American citizens took their own lives in the Jewel. Michael Virgin, a firefighter was known to be depressed, and he hung himself inside a hotel room on April twenty-sixth. The other man, Scott Meinke was a fugitive from justice and when the cops in Punta Gorda caught up with him, he told the magistrate he needed to secure his yacht but climbed to the top of a mast while under police guard, and jumped after securing a rope around his neck.  The following is a US media report describes the now deceased man as a conman who cheated his victims out of hundreds of thousands.
