"Dr. Death", aka Jack Kevorkian, died in June at the age of 83. Kevorkian made a name for himself in the area of assisted suicides helping more than 130 people end their own lives before prosecutors filed second-degree murder charges against him. Fewer than five states have adopted "right to die" laws.
Jack Kevorkian talks to members of the media during a news conference Monday, March 24,2008, in which he announced his decision to run in the November election as an independent for a congressional seat representing Detroit's suburbs in which he will face incumbent Republican Rep.
