Bernie Madoff’s son Mark commits suicide

Today marks the second anniversary of the day that Ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff was arrested for bilking people out of billions of dollars. His son Mark, sent his wife two strange emails before hanging himself this morning in his Soho apartment building at 158 Mercer St. The emails said that he loved her and asked for her to send someone over to look after their son.

Page Six reports:

The eldest son of Bernie, Mark was “upset” over the two-year anniversary media coverage of his father’s massive fraud, a source said, noting a front-page story of the scheme and its aftermath in today’s Wall Street Journal.

This is so sad. He was only 46-years-old. See more exclusive photos of the scene outside of the apartment building here.
