According to Reuters’ article on May 7:

Samuel Israel, a hedge fund manager who faked his own suicide to avoid prison after admitting to running a $450 million fraud, is trying to shorten his 22-year sentence or be set free, saying his health has worsened and authorities can’t take care of him.

Hopefully, this is not another attempt to avoid prison term. “Suicide is painless“, but death-by-no-battery is really painful.
