Madoff's Son Hangs Himself

He claimed to have no knowledge of his father's crimes. Sure. Well, he took the easy way out.
Bernard Madoff’s son Mark was found dead in his SoHo apartment this morning, sources said.

Officers were called to 158 Mercer Street to respond to a report that Mark Madoff was hanging in his apartment.

He was found at 7:30 a.m. by his father-in-law, said police sources.

There was no note, the sources said.

The younger Madoff, 46, had been "unalterably bitter" over his father’s deception, a spokesman told the Wall Street Journal recently.

Mark Madoff and his brother, Andrew, were sued this week by Irving Picard, the court-appointed trustee recovering assets for the victims of Bernard Madoff’s $65 billion Ponzi scheme.
I wonder if Madoff's buddy Chuck Schumer will attend the funeral?
