When Bernie Madoff was sentenced to 150 years in prison in 2009, that of course changed the fraudster’s life forever. And unfortunately, the consequences of his choices lead to a devastating incident with his son years later.

Netflix’s new docuseries, MADOFF: The Monster of Wall Street, tells the story of how this influential Wall Street broker was able to pull off the biggest Ponzi scheme in history — getting his hands on an estimated $64.8 billion. You can expect to hear from whistleblowers, employees, investigators, and the victims who lost their invested money.

Law enforcement was eventually notified of what the schemer was doing, leading to his arrest in December 2008. Though the FBI didn’t figure it out on their own. Madoff’s children are the ones who turned their own father in.

Where are Bernie Madoff’s children now?

On Dec. 11, 2008, the fraudulent business owner was arrested and charged after his two sons, Mark and Andrew, went to the authorities. The two young men told law enforcement that their dad had admitted to them what he was doing.

Madoff was sentenced to 150 years in prison, serving almost 12 of those before he died at the age of 82 in a North Carolina prison due to his declining health. So where are his sons now? Unfortunately, there was a sad turn of events.

Exactly two years after Bernie Madoff’s arrest, Mark died by suicide in December 2010. He hanged himself on the anniversary of his dad’s arrest, according to NBC News. He was 46 years old. Four years following Mark’s death, Andrew died from mantle-cell lymphoma in 2014, as reported by the news outlet. He was 48 years old.
