WATCH: Elizabeth Holmes Found Guilty in Theranos Fraud Trial

The jurors in the fraud trial of Elizabeth Holmes asked to review just one piece of evidence before convicting her of defrauding investors: A 30-minute recording of the Theranos Inc. founder pitching potential backers.

In the 2013 recording, which was submitted into evidence piecemeal, Holmes described Theranos’s relationships and contracts with pharmaceutical companies and the military. She touted her company’s leaps of technological innovation, rocketing share price and a closing window of investment opportunity.
