Wilson, possibly still best known for his dogged pursuit of ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, suffered a massive heart attack the day his Michigan News Center was slated to begin operation. Alone in his condominium when chest pains struck, he drove himself to Henry Ford Hospital. "I've had a couple of other 'heart issues' through the years," Wilson says, "but this one turned out to be 'the Big One, Elizabeth.'"
