This man is a "con artist". Does anyone really think he would actually commit suicide? This is the only way he can "fake" it and not have his body found! If he were really intent on killing himself, doesn't it make sense that he would leave a note and perform the act where his body would be found? In any event, he had almost two months since his sentencing to plan a way out, and he waited until the last moment and with the perfect opportunity to pull it off.
This way, he is able to disappear (and being as good a "con" as he is I'm sure he had a plan already to be set in motion at the right time), access monies he had previoulsy hidden, and with a new identity live on.

Why in the world did the court allow him to be free after getting a 20 year sentance and being a wealthy fellow. Talk about a huge flight risk that should not allow bail.

They should hunt this guy down like the dog he is.
