    One of convicted US fraudster Bernard Madoff's sons has been found dead in New York in an apparent suicide, media reports say.

    Mark Madoff, 46, was found hanged in his Manhattan apartment, a law enforcement official told AP.

    Mark Madoff and his brother Andrew were being investigated in the case that saw their father jailed....

    Looks like we're all just overwhelmed with sorrow at the news.

    People just hate this family. The parents involved their children in the lawbreaking which culminated in the final destruction of the entire family's finances. Parent went to jail.

    Too bad they were**n't** illegal aliens. Those kids are exonerated of any offense commited by their parents. We give them education, citizenship without requirement and make their lives easier.

    Well, I wouldn't want a self-adminstered short-drop hanging to mark my departure from this vale of tears, I will say that much.

    He probably had a good twenty minutes or so to rethink the choice, while completely lacking any means to undo it.

    I do feel extremely sorry for anyone who choses to check out this way.

    Maybe the son was innocent of any crimes, who knows, just sayin. The pressure on him was severe, innocent or guilty, if he was guilty good riddance, but there was no trial and I'm not ready to convict him for what his father did.

    :D not hardly. But do you see the double standard? When it is okay to hold the 'kids' responsible for the dad's lawbreaking? hmmm? illegal aliens are not held to that standard.

    A dog leash? How appropriate...
