International fugitive and former millionaire nose doctor, Mark Weinberger was captured while living in a tent at 6000 feet up in the Italian Alps. Weinberger tried to take his own life with a small knife that he hid in his underwear.
Mark Weinberger’s wife, Michelle, said that he disappeared during the night of September 21, 2004 as she slept on their 79 foot powerboat tied up at a marina on the Greek island of Mykonos.
Before he fled, Weinberger, 46, lived the high life while earning $200,000 a week with a mansion, a chauffeur-driven limousine and a staff of personal maids and cooks. He would often fly to the Mediterranean to unwind.
However, he was accused of ordering unnecessary surgeries to keep the money pouring into his practice. Over two dozen patients filed malpractice cases against him and he hid the fact that he was deeply in debt. He reportedly had a room of survival gear at his office that he shipped to Europe before his disappearance.
His final abode was a tent in the Italian Alps where he was living for months on dried and canned foods.
