Dr. Jack Kevorkian reportedly passed away this morning and the word of his death is spreading just as quickly as his eerie moniker did years ago. Known as “Dr. Death” for the controversy surrounding his support of assisted suicide of the terminally ill, Dr. Kevorkian became even more popular last year as Al Pacino portrayed him on HBO’s “You Don’t Know Jack.”
Reports are still unfolding, but we hear Dr. Kevorkian was not placed on life support after a bout with kidney and heart conditions related to his death.
