Mark Madoff's Body Taken To Manhattan Funeral Chapel

NEW YORK (AP) -- The body of Mark Madoff has been taken from the morgue to a Manhattan funeral chapel.

The 46-year-old son of disgraced financier Bernard Madoff hanged himself with a dog leash in his SoHo 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 took the body on Tuesday. A worker there said no funeral date had been set.

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.
