But did he really kill himself? The fact that he was hanged with a dog leash is significant. Was he saying "I'm a jew and I'm a dog", or did someone else say, "you're a jew and a dog"? There are all kinds of sick jew haters in this world. Many will kill for just a little money; but here is the the loss of vast monies; also, there are those who have threatened to kill Madoff family members.
Did Mark and his brother know about their father's ponzi scheme before he told him? I doubt it. Did 2,500+ other investors know about Bernie's scheme? NO, they did not, and some of these were very savvy. Don't be so sure Mark & Andrew knew. Do kids ever ask us where we got the money we give to them or that we spend? Do they ever question,'is this clean money, is this dirty money, where did you get this money?' No they do not. If Bernie was capable of deceiving 2,500+ big investors and making himself look legitimate, he certainly was capable of deceiving his own kids.
I'm so sorry for Mark and what he suffered. I'm sorry no one claimed his body, I'm sorry he is being cremated which is against jewish tradition. RIP Mark; there IS peace on the other side. I hope you've found it now.
