David Carradine Found Dead


Sadly, David Carradine–Oscar nominated star of Bound For Glory and Kwai Chang Caine in TV’s Kung Fu–was found half naked and hanging in his hotel room in Bangkok, where he was making a movie.

Weirdly, the attached report says police are investigating the cause of death. How else could you end up hanging dead from a cord if you didn’t kill yourself? Are they implying it was autoerotic asphyxiation gone wrong? It is Bangkok, after all, and the cord was supposedly around several body parts (not announced yet).

Whatever happened, it’s all so sad, and I hope they at least get to the bottom of what happened. But if the maid who found Carradine is the same one who came upon Heath Ledger‘s corpse, forget about it.
