Dr. Jack Kevorkian (Dr. Death) Dead at 83

Posted: June 3rd, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Dr. Jack Kevorkian (Dr. Death) Dead at 83Submit Comment
Dr Jack Kevorkian, who had been hospitalized for pneumonia and kidney problems, developed pulmonary thrombosis late Thursday evening and died about 2:30am Friday at a Michigan hospital. He was 83 years old.

Kevorkian was known for assisting the terminally ill with suicide and was nicknamed "Dr. Death" for it. After assisting in more than 130 suicides, he ended up serving an eight year prison term on second-degree murder charges. Kevorkian was released from prison in 2007 and was at the center of the controversial topic of whether people are allowed to decide to die and whether doctors should help them.

Al Pacino portrayed the controversial doctor in an HBO movie, "You Don't Know Jack," which was nominated for 15 Emmys. It also starred Susan Sarandon, Brenda Vaccaro and John Goodman.

Dr. Death meeting death ? Gee, seems anticlimatic.

Seems fitting. Just about three decades too late. Wonder why he didn't commit suicide? Guess his life was too precious, huh?

@mink

may have been to him, but not death. It's like that rap in "bill and ted's bogus journey" ...

you may be a king,
or a street sweeper,
buy someday you've gotta,
visit the reaper.


Rest in Rot, Jackie ...
