Mark Madoff, the Son of Bernard Madoff Who is Currently in Prison For Running a Ponzi Scheme, Was Found Hanging in His Apartment on Saturday Morning
Reports say Mark Madoff hung himself on the second anniversary of his father's arrest.
He was found by family members this morning, and had apparently used a black dog leash to kill himself.
He was 46-years-old and was the head trader at his father's firm. He worked there with his younger brother Andrew, and although they were questioned in their father's case they were never charged and always maintained they never knew about the fraud.
"Mark was an innocent victim of his father's monstrous crime who succumbed to two years of unrelenting pressure from false accusations and innuendo," his lawyer, Martin Flumenbaum, said in a statement.
