Authorities say the son of Bernard Madoff's longtime accountant, who pleaded guilty to securities fraud in the scandal centered on the financier, committed suicide in central Ohio.

Police say 23-year-old Jeremy Friehling was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound at his Columbus apartment on Thursday. He was a second-year student at Ohio State's medical school.

Franklin County's coroner says there's no indication that the Madoff scandal had anything to do with Friehling's suicide. Police say he left a note but they would not give details about it.

His father, Madoff accountant David Friehling, pleaded guilty in New York in 2009 to securities fraud charges and awaits sentencing.

David Friehling's attorney says the family declines to comment.

Madoff's own son hanged himself in 2010 in his New York apartment.
