In 2008, Madoff and his wife "swallowed handfuls of sedatives before climbing into their chintz-draped canopy bed."
Like Madoff's Ponzi scheme, his suicide scheme did not work. The Madoffs woke up the next morning. In this botched suicide story, as told by Mrs. Madoff, she was "glad to wake up" but "not sure how I felt about him waking up."
