The Madoffs Fail to Commit Suicide

Bernard Madoff’s wife Ruth has told 60 Minutes, in the only interview she’s ever given since her life unraveled, that she and Bernie tried to kill themselves on Christmas Eve 2008.

Madoff was out on bail at the time, holed up in his Upper East Side apartment as the hordes gathered below to call for his head. “I don’t know whose idea it was,” Madoff told Morly Safer, “but we decided to kill ourselves because it was so horrendous what was happening. We had terrible phone calls. Hate mail, just beyond anything and I said ‘…I just can’t go on anymore.'”
