While the grizzly details of Ponzi scion Mark Madoff’s suicide have been uncovered in recent days, that same level of attention hasn’t been paid to the months leading up to his death — until now. Bernard Madoff’s son struggled to shed the stigma of his infamous surname since his father was arrested in 2008, and had stepped into the publishing world, launching Strategic Research Advisors, according to the New York Times. When Mark Madoff took his life, the business had just begun to get off the ground, sending out an industry newsletter that culled top real estate news stories from various outlets, including The Real Deal. On the company’s website, the business is described as providing topic-specific information searches to “synthesize all of the information… [in] today’s non-stop 24-7 information cycle.” Mark Madoff was the target of nine lawsuits at the time of his death, all linked to his father’s notorious scam.
