Kevorkian Linked To 27th Suicide

By Compiled From Wire Services

Dr. Jack Kevorkian apparently took part in suicide No. 27, that of a 48-year-old woman with multiple sclerosis whose bathrobe-clad body was found in Kevorkian’s battered van outside the coroner’s office Monday.

Linda Henslee, 48, of Beloit, Wis., died of carbon monoxide poisoning, Medical Examiner L.J. Dragovic said.

“You could just tell she was miserable,” said Lori Coolidge, a hairdresser whose shop is next to the house where Henslee lived with her daughter Dawn.

Coolidge said she shampooed Henslee’s hair. “The day I came over and did it, we just kind of had to flop her head over a counter. … She couldn’t feed herself. She had no control over her hands,” she said.
