This is really sad. Thierry Magnon de la Villehuchet, a co-founder of French fund Access International, apparently committed suicide after losing approximately $1.4 billion of clients' funds with Bernard Madoff. He was found dead this morning in his Upper East Side office. "(He) could not cope with the pressure following the outbreak of the scandal," a relative told French newspaper La Tribune. "This is a farewell from someone who had done nothing wrong." [NYDN]
