Convicted Ponzi Schemer Bernie Madoff’s Son Hangs Himself

I guess he could not handle all the pressure of his father’s criminal activity, wonder if he felt he was next to go down?via NY Times

NEW YORK (AP) — One of Bernard Madoff’s sons was found dead Saturday of an apparent suicide, according to a law enforcement official.

Mark Madoff, 46, was found hanged in his apartment in Manhattan’s SoHo section, according to the official. A family member notified police around 7:30 a.m.

The official spoke to the AP on the condition of anonymity because he wasn’t allowed to speak publicly about the case.

Mark Madoff and his brother, Andrew, were under investigation but hadn’t faced any criminal charges in the massive Ponzi scheme that led to their father’s jailing.

Bernard Madoff swindled a long list of investors out of billions of dollars and is serving a 150-year prison term in North Carolina.

    NO I did not know him personally and obviously something was really wrong with his grasp of life for him to commit suicide. It is well documented that he was investigated for the same crimes as his father and that indictments surrounding this ponzi scheme can still be rendered.
