Madoff's body prepared for funeral

A New York City funeral chapel has received the body of Mark Madoff on behalf of the family.

The 46-year-old son of disgraced financier Bernard Madoff hanged himself with a dog lead in his Manhattan apartment on Saturday. It was the second anniversary of his father's arrest. His death was officially ruled a suicide on Sunday.

A funeral director for the Gramercy Park Memorial Chapel in Manhattan claimed the body on behalf of the family. A worker there said there was no information yet on the funeral.

Bernard Madoff is serving a 150-year sentence for orchestrating the largest Ponzi scheme ever. His lawyer said he would not seek to attend his son's funeral.
