Madoffs Attempted Suicide
FOX – Ruth Madoff, the wife of Ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff, told CBS News that she and her husband attempted to commit suicide after the disgraced financier’s crimes came to light.
“I don’t know whose idea it was, but we decided to kill ourselves because it was so horrendous what was happening,” Ruth Madoff said in an interview with “60 Minutes.” “We had terrible phone calls. Hate mail, just beyond anything and I said ‘…I just can’t go on anymore.'”
