Meinhardt Raabe, who played the Munchkin coroner in ``The Wizard of Oz' and proclaimed in the movie that the Wicked Witch of the East was ``really most sincerely dead,' has died. He was 94.
His caregiver, Cindy Bosnyak, said Raabe - pronounced RAH'-bee - died Friday morning at a hospital in Orange Park, Fla. He was one of the few surviving Munchkins from the 1939 film.
