Mark Madoff was found hanged in his apartment in Manhattan, WABC television reported.
Police did not immediately confirm the identity of Madoff, but an NYPD spokesman told AFP that “the body of a white male of 46 years was found by a member of the family notified police.”
The authorities have reacted to the death in a residence that corresponded to the area where Madoff lived.
Mark and his brother Andrew, both close associates of their father, were under investigation in the massive multibillion-dollar Ponzi scheme that has seen their father sentenced to 150 years behind bars, but they did not face criminal charges.
Bernard Madoff defrauded investors tens of billions of dollars in what is considered the biggest pyramid scheme in history.
