The Wieners deaths come less than a year disgraced fraudster Madoff's death in prison back in April of 2021.

Madoff, who at one point was worth up to $65 billion, was one of the biggest names in Wall Street. He was once the chairman of the NASDAQ stock exchange. The billionaire was known as one of the most power people in the country - that is until he was busted for defrauding roughly 37,000 people in 136 countries. He was arrested by federal police back in December 2008.

Madoff scammed thousands of ordinary folks but had also fooled some of the biggest names at the time such as famed director Steven Spielberg, Tremors actor Kevin Bacon and Nobel Peace Prize winner and Holocaust survivor Elie Weisel. The shamed financier was sentenced to 150 years in federal prison where Madoff would end up spending the last years of his life.

There is no word on whether or not the death of Madoff had any factor in the tragic death of Wiener and her husband.
