Don Lapre Found Dead

The FOX news affiliate in Phoenix reports Don Lapre has been found dead in his jail cell.

Supervisory Deputy U.S. Marshal Matt Hershey says at first glance, his death appears to be a suicide -- but the investigation is ongoing.

His trial was due to begin Tuesday ...

Lapre was being held in federal jail without bond, awaiting trial on charges of defrauding at least 220,000 people out of nearly $52 million ...

A grand jury indicted the 47-year-old on 41 counts of conspiracy, mail fraud, wire fraud and promotional money laundering in connection to his company 'The Greatest Vitamin in the World.'
