The independent autopsy is over, and Dr. Michael Baden has determined that Kung Fu actor David Carradine’s death was not a suicide after all. (That was the original conclusion by Thai authorities when they found him all trussed up last week; later came the auto-erotic asphyxia scenario.) The next step will be more investigations — it’s unclear who will be doing them, but it’s a cinch the Carradine family won’t be leaving it up to the Thai police.
What a relief this must be to Rod Dreher!
Update: Full statements here. Dr. Baden says he needs more evidence from Thailand before he can make a final determination.
