There goes Dr. Death again

December 1992
Time;12/7/1992, Vol. 140 Issue 23, p29
States the latest patient of Dr. Jack Kevorkian of Michigan to die was Catherine Andreyev, 46, a Pennsylvania woman suffering from cancer. Andreyev used a mask to inhale a fatal dose of carbon monoxide last Monday in Waterford, Michigan. This time Kevorkian faced no immediate legal action since Oakland County prosecutor Richard Thompson declined to press homicide charges. Michigan lawmakers are finally moving toward passage of a bill that would criminalize assisted suicides by next spring.
