When Bernard Madoff was moved to his prison’s hospital yesterday, a spokesperson at the federal North Carolina facility would not say why, although she did deny that Madoff was either terminally ill or had cancer. Today, we still don’t know for sure, but reportedly his injuries include broken ribs, a collapsed lung, facial fractures: in other words, it’s looking likely that the 71-year-old Ponzi schemer, currently serving a life sentence, was beaten up.
