Munich, Germany - Bavarian prosecutors say they’ve found no evidence that negligence by medical professionals helped lead to the death of John Demjanjuk while he was appealing his conviction for Nazi war crimes.

Demjanjuk’s attorney in June had asked for an investigation, alleging that pain medication given to Demjanjuk may have exacerbated his kidney problems.

But prosecutors’ spokesman Bernd Magiera told The Associated Press on Tuesday the investigation had been closed after ‘‘no evidence was found of either any foul play or any error by the doctors.’’

Demjanjuk was convicted in May 2011 on 28,060 counts of accessory to murder on allegations he served as a guard at the Nazis’ Sobibor death camp. He denied ever serving as a guard anywhere and died in March at 91 while his conviction was under appeal.

Don't you love the way this sadistic, twisted man was aided and protected even after death? G-d forbid that this 91 year old monster should be treated with less than the utmost respect and care. Nothing less than kid gloves for the personification of evil, huh? May he join Mengele, y"sh, and all those who participated in the atrocities, in the land of eternal punishment.

28,060 souls are watching this charade closely from above. But the day of reckoning always comes. It eventually arrives for everyone....
