Agent: Investor mutters "die" as run from law ends

QUINCY, Fla. (AP) - The pilot at the center of a plane crash mystery has been found alive in northern Florida after he apparently slit one of his wrists.

U.S. Marshals spokesman Michael Richards says 38-year-old Marcus Schrenker was apprehended in a tent at a campground in Quincy.

Richards says one of Schrenker's wrists was cut, but he's in custody.

Authorities believe Schrenker parachuted out of his plane and let it crash in the Florida panhandle. They say the man may have been trying to fake his own death.

Before the crash, Schrenker's life was spiraling downward: His wife filed for divorce, and his financial management companies were under investigation.
