When the news first broke that David Carradine was found dead, hanging from a closet in a hotel in Bangkok, the BBC was the first to suggest that his death was the result of autoerotic asphyxiation. The second paragraph of their original article said…
'Thai police told the BBC the 72-year-old was found naked by a hotel maid in a wardrobe with a cord around his neck and genitals.'
“Genitals” (editors note - *teehee*) was later changed to “other parts of his body.”
The penis part is old news. The hands part is news to me. I wonder if there's anything to the bound hands beyond his family's speculation.
Another gossip site:
The news has leaked that David Carradine's hands were bound at the time of his death, suggesting that perhaps his death was not accidental.
Chuck Binder, Carradine's manager, told CNN "I do not want to get in the middle of this whole investigation, but this guy said to me for sure there was foul play."
Carradine was found dead on Thursday morning with a rope tied around his neck and another around his genitals in a Bangkok hotel room. At first, it was believed he committed suicide, then the investigation shifted to accidental death via auto erotic asphyxiation.
Carradine's family and friends are adament that suicide was not an option for Carradine and now with the news that his hands were bound, it looks as though the acclaimed actor may have been murdered. The police have not commented publicly on anything other than an accidental death.
My son and I miss him very much. He has been in my life since Kung Fu, I've had a crush since Kill Bill, and just recently my boy and I laughed till we hurt watching David in 'Big Stan' as 'the Master'.
I hope his death was painless and without fear. A real angel.
