Mark Madoff Couldn’t Live With Family Curse; Told Wife She’d Be Better Off Without Him
Bernie Madoff’s son Mark, who committed suicide Saturday, couldn’t live any longer with the family curse, and sent desperate early morning emails to his wife reports the New York Daily News.
“At one point he said something like, ‘You’ll have a better life if I’m not around … I love you … Our son needs someone here,'” one source told the News.
Madoff, 46, was discovered hanging from a pipe inside the living room of his luxurious Mercer St. home in Soho around 7:30 a.m. by his father-in-law, who immediately called 911, the sources indicated.
Mark Madoff’s 2-year-old son was asleep in another room, sources said, and his pet labradoodle was also in the home.
A despondent Madoff wrote his wife Stephanie that their family “would be better off without ‘this’ hanging over them all, forever,” a second source said.
Madoff’s attorney Martin Flumenbaum said,”Mark was an innocent victim of his father’s monstrous crime, who succumbed to two years of unrelenting pressure from false accusations and innuendo.”Click here for reuse options!
