Bernie Madoff’s sister found dead in suspected murder-suicide, authorities say

The sister of late disgraced financier Bernie Madoff has been found dead in a suspected murder-suicide in Florida, authorities said Sunday.

Sondra Wiener, 87, was found dead in her Boynton Beach home on Thursday afternoon, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office announced. She had a bullet wound.

Authorities declined to fully identify the name of the man found dead with her, citing a request from his family, although his first name – Marvin – and age match those of her husband. The deceased man is also said to have resided in the house. Several news outlets reported that it was actually her husband, Marvin Wiener, 90.

The couple’s cause of death is still under investigation by the medical examiner, the sheriff’s office said.
