Recent report on CNN that Dr. Jack Kevorkian (Good ol' Dr. Death himself) is "gravely ill", suffering from high blood pressure, osteoperosis, and Hepatitis C. He's "gravely ill", but we've heard that before about the likes of one Ronnie Biggs.

Kevorkian was denied parole and should he ever obtain parole, he'd likely commit suicide shortly after getting out of the big house.
I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

Jack "dr Death" Kevorkian, anyone?

I mentioned Kervorkian about a month ago,

It's impossible to get any independent info about the state of his health.

His lawyer is bound to play up the seriousness of his clients illness,

the parole board obviously thought differently, I'm more inclined to believe them than the lawyer.

Ah, TF, always there to save me some typing :)

In other words, I agree. He's a bit of an American Ronnie Biggs. Authorities are being more careful and criminals more eager with the illness for parole system after that Nazi (I forget his name, cripes) got out on it and then lived for another couple of years until someone finally murdered him.

Quite possibly, Kevorkian's health much like Felt, Brady and Biggs have been "failing" for at least the past couple of years. All at some point have been given just a few months to live.

It's always funny until someone gets hurt, and then it's hilarious.

He has started to deteriorate more rapidly

Bad news for anyone hoping for a quick ending. He says suicide is "not for him."

They may beg, they may plead, they may argue with my logic

And mention all the things I'll lose that really have no value

In the end they will surely know, I wasn't born to follow

I'm a bit wary, since Papon was released a few years back and has held on since... but it's definitely one I'll have to think about. It's not like Papon is in excellent health either...

If he hasn't been suggested already (and I'm not going through 88 pages to look, no matter how fantastic many of you write), I would submit:

Jack Kevorkian

From the article:

"Mayer Morganroth, Kevorkian's attorney, said this summer that Kevorkian, now 78, was suffering from hepatitis C and diabetes, that his weight had dropped to 113 pounds and that he had less than a year to live."

He's another Biggsy or Aziz.

I'm not taking a lawyer's word alone.

Besides, they had a medical examination to see if he should be released early, and the answer was "no" as he was fine. He was due to be released in 2007 anyway.


He stays off my list.

And if he does commit suicide? Will they force his corpse to see out the rest of his sentence? :)

Usually they're let out with a "don't do it again, but if you want to top yourself, we don't care" talk.
