Assisted Suicide Advocate. He was a medical pathologist and a graduate of the University of Michigan School of Medicine. Known as "Dr. Death," he was convicted and sentenced to prison in 1999 for the assisted suicide death of Thomas Youk in September 1998. A jury of seven women and five men found him guilty of providing Mr. Youk, a sufferer of Lou Gehrig's disease, with a lethal injection of a potassium chloride which resulted in his death. During the decade of the 1990s, Kevorkian admitted to assisting over 130 terminally ill patients voluntarily end their lives. His subsequent attempts for a new trial were rejected by both the Michigan State Supreme Court and U.S. Supreme Court of Appeals. He was granted early clemency because of failing health in June 2007. He was the focus of the 2010 HBO documentary "Kevorkian" and the 2010 motion picture "You Don't Know Jack" starring Al Pacino. He died in a Detroit area hospital after a blood clot in his leg broke free and traveled to his heart. At the time of his death he was also suffering from pneumonia and advanced kidney disease. (bio by: Nils M. Solsvik Jr.)
