Joey Coyle, pic subject, dies

The life of Joey Coyle is over, just weeks before his brief encounter with fame, Hollywood style.

He grabbed $ 1.2 million that spilled from an armored car, spent freely and then was acquitted of theft charges.

Coyle, 40, was found dead Sunday in his home. He had hanged himself with an electrical cord, Detective Robert Whalen said.

John Cusack plays the title role in “Joey Coyle,” set to be released Sept. 10 . Director Ramon Menendez said he wanted the movie to show “what it means for a kid like that to find money. He thinks he has choices, but the money makes him paranoid.”
