Bernie Madoff Possibly Assaulted In Prison, Badly Injured
December 24, 2009
Apparently the sleazy Ponzi schemer was rushed to Duke University Hospital in North Carolina with severe injuries on Friday.
He suffered a collapsed lung, several broken ribs, and facial fractures. He was released two days ago and sent back to Butner to finish out his unrealistic 150-year-sentence.
Reps and attorneys for Madoff are not confirming the attack, and officials at the prison are being tight lipped. But it doesn’t seem likely that the billionaire-turned-inmate got those injuries falling down the stairs.
