"Allowing Ruth Madoff to keep 62 million dollars and additional assets would seem to me to be a total miscarriage of justice," wrote one person, referring to a court filing in which Ruth Madoff requested to remain in the couples' $7 million penthouse and keep $62 million after her husband went to jail.
Meanwhile, the investigation into Madoff's possible accomplices continues. Madoff's sons and wife Ruth were all put on guard earlier this week when prosecutors made it clear they intend to seize money and assets from the entire Madoff family.
Neither son, nor Ruth, has been ruled out by investigators though Madoff continues to insist he worked alone.
Court filings last week put the Madoffs' personal worth at $823 million. Investigators have recovered about $950 million in cash and securities from the company. Prosecutors estimate Madoff's Ponzi scheme could have cost his investors anywhere from $50 to $65 billion.
