Dr. Kevorkian Dies at 83 on NewsFeed - Dr. Jack Kevorkian, the doctor who made news for being the pioneer of physician assisted suicide for terminally ill patients; died at 83 today from natural health complications in his kidneys… Talk about a missed promotional opportunity. In a number of interviews with Kevorkian regarding his ailing health, he stated that he wasn’t a candidate for assisted suicide because he wasn’t in pain and because nobody could run his suicide machine… duh. Many of Kevorkian’s opponents referred to him as “Dr. Death” and in 1999 he was convicted of 2nd degree murder in Michigan and sentenced to 7 years in prison. That would have been the best episode of “Lock Up” ever.Dr. Jack Kevorkian died of natural causes today. He was famously called Dr. Death because he performed assisted suicides for many of his patients.
