Actor David Carradine Dead In Thailand

Update: It is looking more and more like David died by accident either from a bondage fetish, or an auto-erotica asphyxiation session.

His third wife, Gail Jensen, has come forward telling the press the actor was into some strange things:

"David was pretty strange. He liked to get tied up. He would tie himself up and I would walk in and see him and say 'Oh my God, David, you got to be kidding me - and I would turn around and walk out.

I would leave him to his own sexual devices. He liked to be tied up. And he could tie himself up ... He spent days planning a different feature. He would go to a hardware store and buy the stuff."

Last week, a Thai publication called Thai Rath published what it said was the death photo taken by officials at the scene. The death picture showed a man hanging by his neck with his hands tied above his head. It is noy clear if the man hanging in the picture is Carradine.

Actor David Carradine Found Dead In Thailand - Hanging In A Closet

Kung Fu actor and celebrity David Carradine has been found dead in a Thailand hotel - naked with a rope around his neck.

An autopsy has been scheduled for Friday.

Carradine, 72, who was in Bangkok filming his latest movie, had commented back in 2004 that he had thought about suicide. But everybody around him on his current film project said he was in great spirits and in a good mood over the last days and weeks.

David had been staying at the Swissotel Nai Lert Park hotel in Bangkok.

Reports have surfaced that a hotel maid found his naked body hanging inside a closet with a rope around his neck. Officials say he had been dead for at least 12 hours.

The actor had been busy, with no less then seven projects in their final stages of production, including "Night Of The Templar", about a Medieval Knight who is resurrected to fulfill his vow and bestow a blood-thirst vengeance upon the kindred spirits of those who betrayed him long ago.

According to an IMDB list of his projects, the actor has appeared in over 200 movie and television projects since 1963, becoming famous for his roles in "Kung Fu" and the Quentin Tarantino "Kill Bill" franchise.

In "Kill Bill - Vol. 2," (2004), his character comes face to face with Bill himself. The role brought Carradine a Golden Globe nomination for best supporting actor.

Carradine was a leading member of a respected Hollywood acting family that included his father, John Carradine and brother Keith.
