Don Lapre

Born: 1964-05-19 - Died: 2011-10-02
Cause of Death:

Death Summary: Lapre's body was found in his cell surrounded by a large amount of blood. According to law enforcement sources it appears as though Lapre had cut himself, but no word on the item he used to inflict the damage upon himself was released.

Who was Don Lapre : Lapre was a TV pitchman and a well known marketing salesman and informercial huckster. His work involved such products as "The Greatest Vitamin in the World" and the "Making Money Package". He was often criticized for selling questionable business plans, which most of the time failed to live up to their promise to his clients. In June of 2011 Lapre was charged with 41 counts of conspiracy, mail fraud, wire fraud and promotional money laundering related to various Internet businesses. He was arrested on June 24, 2011. He was being held in an Airzona jail where he was scheduled to appear in court on October 4, 2011.

On Lapre's website, DonLapre.com, he has a statement which almost reads as a suicide note:

I tried to create the best product on earth, paid out millions, made very little trying to make it a success, had attorneys review my entire company, paid out millions in refunds, tried to make the commission and products better every single year, and in spite of all that, I have been accused of something I did not do. I did not have the perfect company but never once did I allow one thing to be done that would violate any law. Nevertheless, because the majority of people did not make money, in spite of everyone of them being able to make as many $1000 checks as they wanted, I am left to fight a battle that will for sure destroy what energy I have left inside... I hope the pictures below motivate you to take a chance in life and try to do the impossible... It did not work out for me with my vitamins but I believe that being willing to fail is part of having a chance at success.... Never stop dreaming and for all those who sent me testimonials of what you did because of some of my help, I am grateful I made a small difference in your life...

  2. Roger Says:

    I was looking for something and came across a box and when I looked in it there was some of Don’s booklets in it that I had never put into action. One of the booklets is about How To Advertise With Little Or No Money. I am going to put this one to use. I have a website that I need more traffic to visit it http://www.gesds.com. I sell non lethal weapons and security equipment.

    I believe Don was trying to help people to believe in themselves and to have a better future. The world needs more people like Don so we can have a better future and a better world. God knows we do need this type of people. May Don live on in the hearts of the ones he touched.

  3. Jay Plowright Says:

    Don, It’s too bad that you high level of inteligence could not come down to our level to see where you were going with your ambitions. You hurt a lot of people financially and emotionally. As much as I understand you were doing what you thought was correct, you should have backed up and taken a BIG look at what was going on. The worst thing you did was hurt your mother by taking your life prematurly. I only hope you sent your mother all your love “before” your last breath!! I only hope that whatever I do or whatever happens to me, I will NOT take the cowards way out, but noone EVER knows what is in the mind of a suicide victim. May God protect you…

    Don was on the cellblock I watch over before the one he commited suicide in. Anyhow he was an ok guy. He never gave us any trouble but liked to dress in women’s socks which was odd. Hey who am I to judge after all I have ever seen. The blacks are the worst though. Just horrible hygiene.
