Mark Madoff commits suicide

The son of Ponzi-schemer Bernard Madoff committed suicide Saturday in his Manhattan apartment.

According to the Associated Press, Mark Madoff, 46, hanged himself with a dog leash from a metal ceiling beam in his apartment. His death was ruled a suicide by the New York City medical examiner's officer on Sunday.

CNN reported that Madoff committed suicide on the two year anniversary of his father's arrest, while his wife was out of town and his 2-year-old son was asleep in the other room. His body was discovered by his father-in-law.

His immediate family have not commented on his death.
