Kevorkian Present At Another Suicide

Compiled From Wire Services

Dr. Jack Kevorkian attended the suicide Monday of a woman with multiple sclerosis whose body was left in the back seat of an old car outside a hospital emergency room.

“As things went from bad to worse and I was nothing more than a bed veg, I knew it was time to say, ‘See ya,”’ 46-year-old Esther Cohan of Skokie, Ill., had written in an Aug. 9 letter addressed “to all.”

The suicide was at least the 25th in which Kevorkian has taken part since 1990.
