Madoff's eldest son found dead in apparent suicide

Bernard Madoff's eldest son was found dead in his Manhattan apartment Saturday.

Mark Madoff, 46, was found dead on the second anniversary of the day his father was arrested for the ponzi scheme that effected people around the world, according to the New York Times.

Madoff was discovered hanging from a ceiling pipe in his SoHo apartment by his wife's father, Mark London, a prominent lawyer, according to the Star Tribune.

Madoff's "2-year-old song was asleep in an adjoining bedroom," Deputy Police Commissioner Paul J. Browne said to the New York Times.

Stephanie, Madoff's wife, was in Florida with their other son, when she became concerned about her husband after receiving an e-mail from him Friday night, according to the Star Tribune.

Martin Flumenbaum, Madoff's lawyer, said in a statement, "Mark Madoff took his own life today. This is a terrible and unnecessary tragedy," according to the New York Times.
