Kevorkian suicide machine withdrawn from NYC sale
Question of the Day
NEW YORK (AP) - A suicide machine belonging to assisted-suicide advocate Dr. Jack Kevorkian has been withdrawn from a New York City auction of his possessions after failing to draw a high enough bid.
Seventeen paintings also failed to sell at the New York Institute of Technology on Friday. One was made in Kevorkian’s blood.
The paintings are tied up in a legal dispute between his estate and a suburban Boston museum.
The Armenian Library and Museum of America says Kevorkian donated the paintings and they’ll stay put until the dispute is resolved. The estate estimates their value at up to $3.5 million.
Both sides have filed lawsuits.
Kevorkian died in June at age 83. He left his property to a niece in Troy, Mich.
