ruth madoff blames bernie for sons suicide

What a terrible situation!

Ruth Madoff is reportedly blaming her husband, Bernie, for their son Mark's suicide.

Here's what Madoff biographer Jerry Oppenheimer had to say about it on The Today Show:

"She claims that Bernie Madoff has blood on his hands. She calls him an SOB … that he's totally ruined his family, and the death of their son was the final straw."

Oppenheimer has also said that Ruth feels that Mark "would not have died if it weren't for what [Bernie] had done."

And more from Oppenheimer:

"Her wrath is aimed at her husband."

We definitely feel for Ruth! Such an awful tragedy!

Thoughts???

Bernie Madoff's Son Commits Suicide

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad Sad

Mark Madoff, the son of convicted Ponzi-schemer Bernie Madoff, who is currently serving a 150-year prison sentence, was found dead in his Manhattan apartment early Saturday morning of an apparent suicide.

Madoff was found hanging from a ceiling pipe with a dog leash around his neck. His father-in-law discovered his body.

His two-year-old child was also allegedly asleep in a nearby bedroom at the time, unharmed.

It is unknown whether or not he left a suicide note, however prior to his death, Madoff emailed his wife in Florida with "words to the effect that someone should check on his son."

His death occurred on the second anniversary of his father's arrest.

Wow. So sad.
