Mark Madoff Found Dead of Apparent Suicide

by at . Comments

Mark Madoff, the son of imprisoned stock broker and Ponzi scheme organizer Bernie Madoff, was found dead in his Manhattan apartment this morning. All signs point to suicide.

Madoff's hanging body was discovered by his father-in-law. Mark's two-year old son was also present at the time.


 Said an attorney for Mark Madoff:

"This is a terrible and unnecessary tragedy. Mark was an innocent victim of his father's monstrous crime, who succumbed to two years of unrelenting pressure from false accusations and innuendo."

Today actually marks the two-year anniversary of Bernie Madoff's arrest. Our thoughts go out to Mark's family.
