Bernie Madoff's Son Found Dead of Apparent Suicide

12/11/2010 11:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mark Madoff -- son of incarcerated former stock broker Bernie Madoff -- was found dead in his apartment in Manhattan early Saturday morning of an apparent suicide.

Mark Madoff Death -- Bernie Madoff Son
Madoff was found hanging in his SoHo apartment by his father-in-law. His 2-year-old child was also in the apartment at the time.

Mark Madoff, 46, was investigated -- along with his brother Andrew -- as part of his father's Ponzi scheme, but never faced any criminal charges.

An attorney for Mark Madoff released a statement saying, "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 marks the two-year anniversary of Bernie Madoff's arrest.

WOW... the mindset of the majority of the people that post to TMZ never ceases to amaze and horrify me. You people are so full of hatred and yet somehow you consider yourselves better than those you judge. Jew, this... I hope the whole family suffers, that... even wishing ill will on a 2 year old child!!! Do you people understand how sick and twisted you are??? You truly care no more about your fellow men & women than Bernie does!!! I pity you folks... God save your souls!!!

WAKE UP PEOPLE, those of you in the "fly over states" i forgive but new yorkers, calif. is the public really that stupid? ronni chasen , bevhills police say case closed. here, the father hangs himself with the 2yr old in the next room. NO, this was just another payback hit. and because the people of this country only care about the next segment of keeping up with the Kardashians and American Idol... the dumbing down of america is in full force..so, no one will care in a few days.

He did right thing. He had no business continuing to live with everyone he and his family screwed over still suffering. At least the rest of the Madoff family can mark him off their Holiday gift list and save a few bucks.

==================================================
So are you willing to be responsible for everything your family does? He wasn't charged with a crime faced with his life being torn apart and possible loss of everything because of crimes committed by his father he made a bad decision but after two years of this he probably wasn't thinking strait

These people should have been taken to a Private Island and left there to live where they could not hurt others anymore
jail, jail is too good especially where Bernie Madoff is he is better off in jail there is this Florida Attorney in Fort Lauderdale that hurt thousands of people and is gloating over it
Foreclosing on innocent families who did not deserve to be foreclosued there mortgages were paid off he states he is taking the fall for the banks ...the fall on millions of dollars made it more cushy he is doing worse than Madoff stock fraud also stock was $ 15.00 now is .52 he is still walking around and driving in his Bugatti DAVID J STERN is his name
he doesn't even have dignity I do not condone suicide David J Stern should be hung in a public square why is Americans allowing this man to breathe air he is ruthless a sociopath remember his name David J STERN the devil himself

I DOUBT HE WOULD HAVE KILLED HIMSELF WITH HIS CHILD IN THE APT. THIS WAS A RUTHLESS HIT SET UP BY HIS FATHER FOR GIVING HIM UP. HANGINGS ARE USUALLY HITS, IT'S THE HARDEST WAY TO KILL ONESELF. I RESEARCHED IT, HERE IS WHAT I FOUND: "On December 10, 2008, Madoff's sons told authorities that their father had confessed to them that the asset management unit of his firm was a massive Ponzi scheme, and quoted him as describing it as "one big lie. The following day, FBI agents arrested Madoff and charged him with one count of securities fraud"

So why are you picturing Bernie's face instead of his son's ? The man was an individual, and should be presented. That I am sure was his problem other than the major ones, of that being in the shadow of your criminal father, that may have taken the fall for you as well, or trying to clean up his mess was too much for anyone to bare.

Ummm guys... This guy was part of the crime his father was involved in! He was given millions of dollars about 6 months before his father went to trial. What did he just say "deerrrr dis is some christmas money for you and your wife!!" NO!! he was hideing it from the FBI! This a$$ face deserves to rot in hell along with his Hebrew star fu@#er father! BTW guys Daddy died a few years back before serving his "life in prison" punishment

All these comments are awesome, except from nicksunset, there is no reason to bring up the Jewish card...I know many Jewish people that are amazing, who are family oriented people...the madoffs suffered from Greed not from being Jewish....
