Kevorkian died at 2:30 a.m. Friday after being hospitalized at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak since last month with pneumonia and kidney problems, his attorney Mayer Morganroth said. An official cause of death had not been determined, but Morganroth said it likely will be pulmonary thrombosis.
