October 27, 2009|Times Wire Reports

A man accused of making more than $7 billion off the investment schemes of convicted financier Bernard L. Madoff drowned after a heart attack, authorities said.

Jeffry Picower, 67, was found around noon Sunday by his wife, Barbara, at the bottom of a pool at their Florida mansion.

An autopsy conducted Monday found he suffered a heart attack and drowned, said Dr. Michael Bell, chief medical examiner for Palm Beach County. The death has been ruled accidental, and the heart attack was brought on by heart disease.
