Berlin, where he visited his sister, but missed the plane. He later

"Doctor Death" Jack Kevorkian is an American pathologist, right-to-die
activist, painter, composer, and instrumentalist. He is most noted
for publicly championing a terminal patient’s right to die via
physician-assisted suicide; he claims to have assisted more than
hundred terminally ill people to that end. In each of the above
mentioned cases, the individuals themselves allegedly took the final
action which resulted in their own deaths. He famously said that
"dying is not a crime." Between 1999 and 2007, Kevorkian served eight
years of a 10-to-25-year prison sentence for second-degree murder. He
was released on parole on June 1, 2006, due to good behavior.
