Andrew Madoff, Bernie Madoff’s son who ended his father’s multi-billion dollar ponzi scheme by turning him in, died of cancer at Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
“Andrew Madoff has lost his courageous battle against mantle cell lymphoma," said his attorney, Martin Flumenbaum, in a statement. "He died peacefully ... surrounded by his loving family.''
Bernie Madoff defrauded hundreds of investors of billions of dollars in 2008 and is now serving a 150-year prison sentence.
CNBC reports that Madoff’s older son, Mark, committed suicide in 2010 on the second anniversary of his father's arrest.
Both sons denied knowing anything about the ponzi scheme.
