The sister of Wall Street fraudster Bernie Madoff, along with her husband, were found dead last Thursday in their home in an apparent murder-suicide, officials announced on Sunday.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office reported: Around 12:55pm on February 17th Deputies responded to a 911 call advising a male and female were unresponsive inside their residence. Upon arrival deputies located an elderly female and male deceased from a gunshot wound.

Detectives from the Violent Crimes Division arrived on scene to investigate further. After further investigation it appears to be a murder/suicide.

The family has invoked Marsy’s Law for the male born, DOB: 7/XX/31 and the female, Sondra Wiener, DOB: 6/16/34.

The Medical Examiner’s Office personnel arrived on scene and took possession of both Marvin and Sondra. The cause of death will be determined by the ME.

Sondra Wiener was 86-years-old. Her husband Marvin Wiener was 90. Deputies didn’t say who was responsible.

Our thoughts and condolences go out to their family. There is currently an investigation pending. All I can say is at this time there is no security or safety threat to anyone in the community.”
