Assisted suicide advocate Jack Kevorkian has died. Lawyer and friend Mayer Morganroth says the 83-year-old retired pathologist died sometime between 2:30 – 3:30 a.m. Friday morning at Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak. Kevorkian had been admitted to the hospital over 10 days ago and was being treated for pneumonia and kidney problems.
Kevorkian was released from a Michigan prison in 2007 after serving eight years for second-degree murder. He claims to have assisted in at least 130 suicides.
