Dr. Jack Kevorkian died this morning at the age of 83. HE earned the name, Dr. Death for performing assisted suicides (130) for terminally ill patients.
Kevorkian died at Beaumont Hospital in Michigan, where he was being treated for the last two weeks for kidney and heart problems.
Kevorkian was convicted of second-degree murder in 1999 and was sentenced to 10-25 years in prison, but was released early, in 2007.
People think that he offed himself too but his lawyer insists that is not the case,
“I think had he been able to go home, Jack would have not allowed himself to go back to the hospital. The circumstances were such that he was so weak he could not get out of the hospital, he was primarily sleeping most of the time.”
Dr. Jack Kevorkian May 26, 1928 – June 3, 2011
