Charles Kilduff, Suicide Victim, Fails to Get Final Request: His Organs Harvested

A 48-year-old man bleeding from his head was found on a sidewalk near Mission Hospital in Mission Viejo early Saturday morning.

That's not all responders to the 2:30 a.m. call discovered. Charles Kilduff left a suicide note asking doctors to harvest his organs.

The Orange County Register has the scoop.

The Las Vegas man was rushed inside the hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival. Unfortunately, the hospital was unable to use his organs.

A handgun was found near Kilduff's body.
