David Carradine Died of Asphyxiation, Says Forensics Expert


The results of the second David Carradine autopsy is out. His examiner, forensics expert Dr. Michael Baden, says he was asphyxiated. We figured. What else has Dr. Baden got? “Now why that happened is still what we’re working on,” he offers. He says Carradine wasn’t a suicide, the hands tied behind his head presumably being the giveaway. He thinks the autoerotic asphyxia scenario is not to be ruled out. Nobody seems to be mentioning the m-word, but it looks like he had help, if that’s the right word, and his lawyer has suggested that Carradine may have been taken out by kung-fu masters, just like the comic books promised. FBI, take it away.
