Jack Kevorkian “Dr. Death,” Assisted Suicide King, Dies at 83

Detroit, Michigan

Dr. Jack Kevorkian, the audacious Michigan pathologist dubbed “Dr. Death” for his role in assisting the suicides of more than 100 terminally ill people, died early Friday at a Detroit-area hospital after a brief illness.

Kevorkian, 83, died about 2:30 a.m. at William Beaumont Hospital in Michigan.

Sources indicate Kevorkian had been hospitalized since last month with pneumonia and kidney problems. The pathologist suffered a pulmonary thrombosis when a blood clot from his leg broke free and lodged in his heart.
