Infamous Kevorkian van sold to ghost hunter.

The infamous white van that once belonged to assisted suicide advocate Jack Kevorkian has been sold to the host of a TV show on paranormal investigations. Zak Bagans, star of “Ghost Adventures” on the Travel Channel, paid $32,500 this week for the rusty 1968 Volkswagen van, which has been parked in storage at the American Jewelry and Loan pawn shop on 8 Mile in Detroit, said Seth Gold, the shop’s vice president.

Seth Gold said the sales exchange was featured on an episode of the shop’s “Hardcore Pawn” reality show on truTV in which the seller and his dad, pawn shop owner Leslie (Les) Gold, flipped a coin to determine the sale price. (Tails was $20,000; heads $40,000.) Bagans has yet to see his new vehicle in person. So far, the only indication of potential paranormal activity involving the van happened about a year ago when a Long Island-based medium and reality TV personality, Theresa Caputo, passed near the van during a visit. In 2010, an Indiana auction house announced that it was selling the van after eBay had pulled the listing because of the website’s rules against using items it considered connected to murderabilia.
