Guilt, perhaps? The news article read that he and his brother were the ones who blew the whistle on dad.

Still, very sad news, and I feel for the family.

Agreed. Deep down, however, I believe the boys knew about the scheme and Bernie told them to blow the whistle (as he knew the hammer was coming down) to try to keep them out of trouble.

I hope Bernie is suffering in his jail cell every day for all of what he has caused. His son was probably shamed into suicide. Has to be very tough to live with their father's legacy hanging over their head. Now Bernie has the guilt of his son's death to deal with for the rest of his life behind bars. Wonder if he thinks all of those riches were worth it now???

Yeah, it's sad, but just from reading this article I would bet that Mark Madoff knew what was going on with his Father's schemes for a long, long time but preferred to "live the life" anyway. I feel a LOT more sorry for the many, many elderly who are now dependent on social security as their only source of income after their entire investment portfolio was wiped out. Greed leads to a dirty deed.........hanging from the rafters. An American tragedy.

Its bad and sad anyway you look at it. Was it his conscience? Was it 2 yrs of intense scrutiny and interrogations and media hype and etc..... Gotta feel for the family...except for Bernie. Hope he has a long time to think about all the lives he has ruined.

I have to agree with you somewhat on this.

It must be terrible realizing you had a hand in something so heinous.

It's always said that money can't buy happiness, but it can sure destroy lives.

ditto. Sins of the Father visited upon the Son.....

I couldn't live with my son killing himself over me.

That is what I was thinking, that dad took the fall for his sons/wife and had them turn him in to cover for them. From the article, it sounds as if the sons were still being investigated. Perhaps Mark knew the authorities were getting close to charging him.

It's especially hard to feel sympathy for a family who was so financially destructive to some innocent people that lost all their life savings and who are greatly responsible for the financial cave in... with that said..

we all have choices , on the flip side , if it sounds to good to be true..well you know the Old saying... It was a huge risk for these investors to * make * even more money... but when you choose a huge risk..be ready for the bottom to fall out and it did...

Money is the root of all evil.....

Sad all the way around. Bernie Madoff just received his real life sentence.

These guys (and i think the sons had to have know) were the lowest of the low. One friend of mine's mother lost her condo in Fla. As fellow Jews how in the world do you steal from Elie Wiesel and Yeshiva University. NOT TO MENTION SAND F**NG KOUFAX. Our one Jewish Superhero.

I feel for the kids and the widow, but if this guy wasn't in on it he was the greatest spoiled brat in the world - million a year to be a broker with no knowledge of the company runnings?

I am sure the inmates are emotionally torturing Bernie at this point. If there is a sliver of soul withing him he will off himself. Apparently Ruth is blaming him for everything (but hey, how in the world did she not know? She distanced herself from the business the last few years I am sure to avoid full knowledge.)

Again, I feel for the grandkids, but death is too good for these lowlifes
