Mark Madoff Committed Suicide, His Lawyer Says in Statement
Mark Madoff, a son of convicted hedge fund swindler Bernard Madoff, committed suicide today, an attorney representing Mark Madoff said.
“Mark Madoff took his own life today,” Martin Flumenbaum of law firm Paul, Weiss, Rifkind said in a Business Wire statement.
“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,” Flumenbaum said in the statement.
