eBay de-lists Kevorkian death van
Posted: 6:41 pm Mon, April 26, 2010
The VW camper van Dr. Jack Kevorkian used during his assisted suicide campaign is no longer listed for sale on eBay after the online auctioneer cited a policy against “murderabilia.”
Current owner Jack Finn put the van on eBay last week. The top bid was $3,400 at 12:30 p.m. EDT Monday, with three days left. But the item wasn’t listed an hour later.
eBay e-mailed Finn about the policy to explain why it pulled the listing. He says he’s now selling the van through Auburn, Ind.-based Kruse Auctions.
Messages seeking comment were left for eBay.
The 82-year-old Kevorkian used the van in several deaths, including the poisoning of an Alzheimer’s patient that launched his public effort in 1990.
Al Pacino plays Kevorkian in the HBO movie “You Don’t Know Jack,” which first aired Saturday.
