eBay auction claims Kevorkian bus

April 26, 2010 at 5:42 PM

FERNDALE, Mich., April 26 (UPI) -- A Michigan eBay user is selling a rusted-out Volkswagen microbus he claims was used to perform assisted suicides by Jack Kevorkian.

The Ferndale-based seller wrote the bus, the former location of Kevorkian's "suicide machine," was purchased from the doctor in 1997 and "has been sitting unused in a warehouse ever since," the Detroit Free Press reported Monday.

"It is in basically the same condition as when it was used," the item description reads.

The auction reached a high bid of $3,300. The mileage for the vehicle is listed as 999,999.

Kevorkian was convicted of second-degree murder and was released in 2007 after serving more than eight years in jail.
