Thank you for some great memories, David Carradine.

Bound for Glory showed your art at its best.

Very sad. I just bought the Kung Fu tv series last week.

"He left after three seasons, saying the show had started to repeat itself"

I'd say it started repeating itself after the second episode of the first season. That being said, I enjoyed every episode of Kung Fu!

"he... stuck to coffee and cigarettes"

That stuff will kill you.

Um you might want to look at other reports. It just wasnt his neck he had the rope around.

His fu was ok to bad it was bruce lee that dreamed up the whole kung fu plot.

Carradine had a history of bizarre behavior that included running around naked and threatening people with swords, guns or whatever. I may be wrong, but I belived him to be a complete junkie while all of this was goin' on.

His final act may just be the last chapter of a strange existence.

I thoroughly enjoyed him on the current The History Channel's Real West programs and hoped he had finally grown up.

To date, I do enjoy his younger brother on screen. He was terrific as a pervert serial killer in a made-for-TV mini-series called Sheriffs.

DXXJP: His kung fu was not bad, but he seemed to portray more cerebral characters. As opposed to non-stop action. Kill Bill may have been an exception.

-and coffee's been back on the good to imbibe list for several years now.

DXXJP,

I assume you're speaking of asphyxiophilia? I looked around a few different sites and didn't see a thing about it or the cord being wrapped around any other part of his body. What other report did you see and can you post a link?

Yea, I checked out IMDB, there is an article stating he died during a sex game gone wrong. According to sources in Bangkok. Wow, 72 years old.

Yeah, but I never really held him at fault for that. It was the producers lack of taking a chance on an oriental, but if you look at it differently, it worked out for Bruce too. Had he starred in the series, we may never have had his great movies.

Anyway, I also always thought of Carradine as a bit twisted.

When the Thai cops rule something a suicide, that doesn´t mean it is one. Lived there long enough back then to be familiar with a lot strange cases.

The article doesn´t give details, but he wouldn´t be the first BKK expat to to hook up with the wrong people.

some more detail from a web board in thailand

Carradine, 72, was in Bangkok to shoot a movie and stayed at a Suite Room 352 of the Park Nai Lert Hotel on Wireless Road since June 2.

The film crew were aware of his absence when they went to dine out at a restaurant on Sathorn Road on June 3.

Carradine did not show up at the dinner and the team could not reach him. They assumed that he took a rest because of his age.

It was a hotel's maid who opened his suite on Thursday at 10 am only to find Carradine in a closet. He was described as behind half naked.

Police investigation showed that he hung himself with a rope, the kind that is used with curtains.

Police said he was dead for not less than 12 hours and found no sign of fighting and assaults.

Me too. But in a good way.

Weirdos like David Carradine make the world a more interesting place imo. The world has become a little bit more boring with his loss.

Not looking like suicide, according to this news report:

He was in the Thai capital to shoot a film called “Stretch.”

If it was a case of a sex act going wrong, how ironic is the name of the film.

RIP. I actually liked Kung Fu the Legend continues better.

alone in Thailand, in a hotel, yellow nylon rope tied around his neck and a black rope around his genitals, yep. thailand, alright.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Why, rich as he was, and in the sex capital of the world, did he try to get his jollies on his own in a wardrobe?

How very sad.

"he may have died from masturbation"

Heck, I was told you could go blind, but nothing about death...

Hung Fu.

it is a kind of weird. who masturbate like this

Police said the body of Carradine was found curled up inside the wardrobe with one end of a shoelace tied tied around his penis and the other end fastened around his neck. Both of his hands were bound with a cord which was also tied around his neck.

Way to commit suicide! As the song goes "a night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble..."

Any idiot can tell this isn't a suicide. A dangerous game maybe, murder maybe, but what part about being bound by the hands or tied up SM style in any way says suicide?

SM accidental deaths happen, suicide with your hands tied up and in bondage doesn't. Even murder is far more likely than suicide.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

There is a dangerous act called auto-erotica (nothing to do with cars). Some believe if they have an orgasm at the point of unconsciousness (from suffocation) it will be very intense. However, if you become unconscious, you will hang yourself. I can't say that is the case here yet. But, I have investigated similar cases which were later ruled accidents. "he may have died from masturbation" - if that's the case, we're all in danger.

The article I read implied the Carradine family preferred this scenario to the suicide report. Very western.

Maybe the guy was murdered.

The Thai police says.... whatever. Not to be trusted especially if foreigners are involved.

This is bound to happen when you hang around hotels in Thailand.

Whatever happened to "died of a heart attack" as a cause of death. Really, telling us that old Dave (and his member) were trussed up like a chook doesn't do much for his legacy. Thirty five years of great work in the theater, but nobody will remember that. This time next year his legacy will be cemented in Internet quizzes are the globe along the following lines.

Q. What famous US actor was found dead in a Bangkok hotel room while naked and trussed up like a chicken?

So sad, so sad.

yea man..gutted about this.....gotta be better ways to go..or perhaps not

anyway definitely was assisted and even paid for ...but the person involved did the smart thing and ran like hell!

Condolences to the Family and a sad bye to another legend in my own wee lifetime

Carradine was an awsome actor and I grew up watching Kung Fu. That said he had quite a problem with the bottle at one time and his ex-wife made some statement about a potentially deadly sexual fetish in the divorce documents. It sounds like he may have fallen off the wagon if the statement about him drinking beer all day is true. Whatever the cause rest in peace the world has lost another unique acting talent.

ok whatever, but kung fu series was quality. lets just remember him for this. rip.

What was that Australian pop singer guy...didn't he pass away in a similar manner? Must be pretty good buzz if you don't cross the line, if so many seem to do it. Wasn't there another person in the room?

Michael Hutchence of INXS. The buzz is that he died the same way - auto erotic asphyxiation.

"he may have died from masturbation" Oh no everyone. Be careful out there. David and the guy form INXS have taught us that it's not ok to wank all tied up. Let's learn from their mistake. Just try holding your breath for chripe's sake.

That is the problem with dynamically updated articles.

Whatever's left after the dust settles doesn't interest me in the least. How he lived his private life is his own business. I like to see pedophiles caught and punished, well, murderers and rapists, too, for that matter, okay, add in ppl that scam (Madoff) others out of their life savings - otherwise, what floats his boat is none of my biz. It's too bad that he died. I thought he was a good actor and I liked him when I saw him in this or that. That's it.
