Detroit - The VW camper van Dr Jack Kevorkian used during his assisted suicide campaign is no longer listed for sale on eBay.

Current owner Jack Finn put the van up for auction on eBay last week, and the top bid was at $3 400 at 16:30 GMT on Monday, with three days left. But an hour later, the item was no longer listed. A phone message was left for Finn, and email messages 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.

Kevorkian's lawyer Mayer Morganroth says Kevorkian turned the 1968 Volkswagen bus in for scrap in 1997.

Al Pacino plays Kevorkian in the HBO movie You Don't Know Jack.
