The guy was 72, i'm sure it took alot more to get him off than an 18 year old.

I immediatly thought "He pulled a 'Michael Hutchance'" when they said he was found hanged naked... who the hell gets naked to hang themselves ??

Thought there was some kind of 'safety setup' for people who liked to do that so that it would release if too much weight was put on rope.

Oh well, embarrassing way to go but not like he cares...

Re: Kill Bill Star David Carradine Found Dead in Bangkok

Personally I'd be kinda relieved if it was autoerotic asphyxiation. Regular suicide would just make me think 'what a fucking stupid coward loser' and I'd hate to think that about someone I've always been a fan of.

The asphyxiation thing is much more common than you think and a grown man knows the risk. Besides there are way worse kinds of sex/self pleasure out there.

Re: Kill Bill Star David Carradine Found Dead in Bangkok

I wonder how his wife and kids are going to feel for the rest of their lives, knowing he died in such a "private" way?

Those ladyboys are tricky and apparently dangerous.

I remember being so excited when the guy from Death Race was in Kill Bill.

That was a good interview. I'm going with the foul play theory.

Really?

If it was an accidental sex thing, was he alone? Or with someone who panicked and lammed it when he died? Bangkok is an easy place to get a partner.

Thanks for the video Matthew.
I feel terrible for the poor souls who would go see Larry King's comedy show with songs by his wife. That sounds like a depressing evening.

Re: Kill Bill Star David Carradine Found Dead in Bangkok

Apparently he was last seen with a young Thai woman. Also there was a cord around his testicles or something. Huh?

Re: Kill Bill Star David Carradine Found Dead in Bangkok

This is what it corrently says on Wikipedia. I'm sure this will only be there a short time


On June 4, 2009, Carradine was found dead in his room at the Swissotel Nai Lert Park Hotel on Wireless Road, near Sukhumvit, in central Bangkok, Thailand.[2][3] A police official said Carradine was found hanging by a rope in the room's closet,[13][14] and the Bangkok Post reported that his body was found curled up in the wardrobe with a shoelace tied around his genitals and neck along with a small asian boys head inserted in his rectum, although the boy was un harmed.[15]

I'm confused; is this condemnation or are you inspired by Carradine?

Ex-wife accused actor of "potentially deadly" acts in court filing

JUNE 5--As investigators try to determine how actor David Carradine wound up
hanging naked and dead in a Bangkok hotel closet with a rope tied around his
genitals, a review of divorce court filings shows that his most recent ex-wife
once accused the actor of "deviant sexual behavior which was potentially
deadly." Additionally, Marina Anderson alleged in a sworn declaration that
Carradine engaged in an "incestuous relationship with a very close family
member." Anderson's declaration, an excerpt of which you'll find below, was
filed in mid-2003 in Los Angeles Superior Court (the document was supposed to be
filed under seal but was mistakenly placed in the public court file, where TSG
found it). The declaration does not detail Carradine's alleged "deviant sexual
behavior." As for the incest charge, Anderson reported that Carradine and the
unnamed relative admitted the taboo relationship, but that her "pleas for him to
get counseling in regards to this matter were ignored and he wanted no part in
the healing process the other person needed in order to get closure." In a phone
interview today, Anderson, who was married to Carradine for four years, said she
stands by the allegations in her court filing, but declined to further discuss
her charges. A Bangkok police official told reporters that investigators were
examining whether Carradine accidentally suffocated while engaging in an
autoerotic sex act.

I wonder who the "very close" relative he was doing? Martha Plimpton maybe?

Holy Bored, She Hung Herself Batman!

(For those of you in Rio Linda BSHH was an Episode of Hawaii Five-O that featured an Actor doing the very same stund that did in Mr. Carradine.)

Shortly after the episode aired someone tried to do this themself and consequently got killed, so CBS Never aired the episode again. It was kept out of Syndication, and was not included in the DVD Box Set.

I suppose since this thread pretty much started with auto-erotic asphyxiation there's no reason not to set off down this path now... Due to the phrasing I put in bold above, I think it worth noting that it is suggested at first that the relationship was only "deviant" by virtue of where the two participants found themselves on the family tree. Yet, the second phrase in bold suggests that, whatever took place, Carradine was an aggressor.

Now, granted, it could simply be that he had a romantic/sexual relationship with a consenting adult who happened to be on the family tree and the idea that that person needs closure now has more to do with how the relationship ended, than with its actual nature. Many people struggle to deal with relationships that collapse, without there being anything "sordid" to it. In any event, the legacy of David Carradine is already shaping up to be one of the more...fascinating...stories of recent times.

Sexual deviant kills himself trying to jack off. I don't think that's very fascinating... at least not to me.

Not to me either. That's got a pretty good "Session" if you put a rope around your genitals and neck but look what happened. He died and people found him like that.
