David Carradine
David Carradine, who was found dead on June 4 aged 72, was the lanky, sad-eyed American actor catapulted to fame as Kwai Chang Caine in the 1970s cult television series Kung Fu; after two decades in the doldrums, his career took sail again when he played the assassin-turned-victim in Quentin Tarantino’s two-part film saga Kill Bill.

Of course, search works better when people actually post KEYWORDS in their posts. The link you provided has none.

Thanks for posting it, though. Perhaps others didn’t know.

Actually, RB...it was reported he died of "natural causes" according to statement from his manager.

I hadn't seen the details of his "hanging" officially talked about.

There were "rumors".

72 years old, and Kwai Chang is into auto-asphyxiation, or whatever that ‘act’ is called.

Too bad there isn’t any other way a man can satisfy his urges in Thailand.

Helps if you know how to spell "Carradine." A headline search gives you this:

I know. I’m not criticizing you, but commenting that you shouldn’t be jumped on for posting it because you wouldn’t have found the previous thread if you had searched for it.

I always search for threads before I post them, but it’s amazing how many threads are posted with no keywords.

Then I post something and someone gets in a snit about it already being posted and the thread gets pulled or locked.

It would help if people used reasonable keywords.

Copy and paste works well.

Still, there’s a field for keywords and it would be helpful to use it.

Another thing I’ve run into is that on occasion, I check a title and get no results. Suspecting that there had to be a thread, I checked a variety of keywords and the thread popped up with the EXACT title I just searched for and didn’t get even though it was from the same source.

Search is notorious for not working well, but people using keywords would help tremendously.

I just caught this in the Telegraph too with a 7:34pm ET timestamp. That link from the Post had this:
Lumpini police said the body of Carradine was found curled up inside the wardrobe with one end of a shoelace 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, said an officer at the station who requested anonymity.

Forensic experts said Carradine had probably died between 12 and 24 hours before his body was found.

They said there were no injury marks on his body and no evidence of a struggle having taken place in the room. Mysteriously, a footprint found on the bed did not match the shoes worn by Carradine.
Seems to be a lot more than just a simple suicide. Sad!

When I heard the details of the death....I wondered if it was auto-erotic asphyxiation.

Sooooo sad. One of my favorite shows as a kid....and have watched it with my ‘little one’ as we both train in karate.

Do you mean to say that an aging Holliweird actor went to Thailand, to look at the Sculpture and hung himself?

It seems to me that main attractions in Bangkok are kids and hookers.

Wrong.

but it’s amazing how many threads are posted with no keywords.

That's why you search on titles and not exclusively on keywords.

His father was John Carradine. He was in many horror/suspense movies I think in the 30s and 40s. Then in the 60s he appeared in a few episodes of the Munsters as Herman’s boss, Mr. Gateman.

I’ve seen a few suicides, I’ve never figured out why so many do it naked. It is very disturbing to see a dead man swinging from the ceiling.
