David Carradine Dies in Bangkok Hotel-Room Closet, Hanged in Possible Case of Sexual Asphyxia

Naked, hanging in a closet.

By the way, the "sexual asphyxia" thing is my gloss, not something the media is reporting. It's speculation only by me, but it sure seems hinted at.

Kill Bill and Kung Fu star David Carradine has been found dead in a Bangkok hotel room on Thursday.

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 other parts of his body.

Maybe he was just doing research:

The US star was in Thailand filming his latest film, Stretch...

Moe Lane says the original story did not say the cord was wrapped around "other parts of his body," but was more specific. I'm trying to find out if he's joking, but I don't think he is.

Update: Moe wasn't kidding. I didn't think he was, but you never know.

Here's how the story went out earlier.

Thai police told the BBC the 72-year-old was found by a hotel maid sitting in a wardrobe with a rope around his neck and genitals on Thursday morning.

The "sitting" part also seems to scream "auto-erotic sexual asphyxia." Another accidental hanging.

I do not get this kink. Authorities estimate that 200 people die per year due this practice, almost half of those on Law & Order: SVU alone.

Roy asks...

That wasn't a pebble they found in his hand?

joncelli...

Okay, the guy is in a city infamous for its sexual debauchery, all of which a wealthy actor could have obtained with his pocket change, and he dies while asphyxiating the weasel? Now that is a genuinely stupid way to go.

He didn't risk AIDS this way. So he's got that going for him.
