Marcus Schrenker

Indy's missing financial executive continues to make headlines in the United States, and around the world.

Marcus Schrenker, President/Chief Compliance Officer of Heritage Wealth Management, located at 11206 Fall Creek Road, Indianapolis, evidently parachuted out of his small plane over Alabama Sunday and disappeared. His single-engine Piper Malibu Meridian continued flying on autopilot and crashed in Florida's panhandle.

Both financial troubles and a pending divorce are said to be contributing factors.

The latest news is here: Schrenker evidently picked up a motorcycle and supplies he'd stashed in the Harpersville-Childersburg area, near where he bailed out of his plane.

Some more places to read all about it are here, here, here and here.

UPDATE (as of 14 January):
Yeah, they got him. At a campground in Florida. Now comes the long, slow process of the justice system.

UPDATE II (as of 15 January):
The wrapup story in The New York Times.

i predict that Marcus Schrenker's life will be turned into an indy film within the next year (starring Gerard Butler of course since they look so much alike)
