Prisoners say Madoff is dying of cancer


Bernie Madoff is dying of cancer in prison, The New York Post reports, citing Bernie's fellow inmates. Madoff is serving 150 years at a North Carolina federal lockup after pleading guilty to swindling investors out of more than $65 billion.

"He's been taking about 20 pills a day for his cancer," said one inmate. "He talks about it all the time. He's not doing very well."

Other sources report that Madoff has been spending time with the prison's Native American community, participating in sweaty, bare-chested spiritual purification ceremonies.
