AP Exclusive: Capano upbeat during final visit

DOVER, Del. - September 21, 2011

Ed Sacks, a former law firm colleague, says Capano talked about books, politics and family. However, Sacks says Capano also discussed his health problems, and was reluctant to see him leave. Sacks says Capano told him that wouldn't be seeing him again for a long time.

Sacks, who worked with Capano briefly in the 1970s at a Wilmington law firm, visited Capano on Sunday at a maximum security prison in Smyrna.

Capano was found dead in his cell the next day after suffering sudden cardiac arrest. The once wealthy and politically-connected attorney had been serving life in prison for killing a mistress in 1996.
