Mark Madoff’s Body Taken To Manhattan Funeral Chapel

NEW YORK (AP) — The body of Mark Madoff has been taken from the morgue to a Manhattan funeral chapel.

The 46-year-old son of disgraced financier Bernard Madoff hanged himself with a dog leash in his SoHo apartment on Saturday. It was the second anniversary of his father’s arrest.

His death was officially ruled a suicide on Sunday.

A funeral director for the Gramercy Park Memorial Chapel took the body on Tuesday. A worker there said no funeral date had been set.

Bernard Madoff is serving a 150 year sentence for orchestrating the largest Ponzi scheme ever. His lawyer said he would not seek to attend his son’s funeral.

    i am in love with that sexy geriatric ruth madoff. what can i say, i really dig 80 year old women, even though she looks older than her age. but she’s innocent (yeah, right). ruth knew exactly what was going on. i can’t understand how she’s allowed to walk around free as a bird. come on baby, shake those wrinkles.

    oh yeah, sorry your son killed himself.

    It is hell for the Madoff family as they are constantly being bombarded by the media, but the millions of vicious comments by Jew haters adds fire to that hell. John Gotti and his family got more respect, luckily they were not Jewish.

  5. Vic says:

    Wow, what a stand up guy. He elects not to go to his son’s funeral. Nice touch.

  6. Vin says:

    There’s no excuse for what he may or may not have been involved with in his father’s business. No excuse for the fact that people have lost some savings or even their entire life savings because of this heinous greedy crime perpetrated by Madoff the king of thieves and quite possibly his entire family. But please keep in mind with your bashing that two very young children are now left without a father. These young babies had nothing to do with all this.

    I always thought Social Security was the largest Ponzi scheme ever.

    He must have ran out of other people’s money.
