David Carradine, 72, suicide: 'Kill Bill' star David Carradine found dead |West Palm Beach News, South Florida Breaking News, Forecast, Video from WPTV

Apparently in luxury hotel in Bangkok where a maid found him "sitting in a wardrobe with a neck around his rope and body". Carradine May Have Commited Suicide | TMZ.com I note this quote: "Carradine's agent claims the actor had been in great spirits during the trip to Thailand."

Hmmm, Bangkok. And "sitting" with "rope around neck and body" - anyone else wonder if he was engaged in "auto-erotic asphyxiation" and waited just a teenie-weenie bit too long? Or if there might be a, you know, eyewitness to the actual event?

Ive never been too comfortable with him. It may not have been his fault but his role as Kwang Chang Kaine was supposed to be Bruce Lee's. He was chosen over Bruce for racial reasons. Again, it may not have been Carradine's fault but still...

That's funny, because he's always given me a creepy feeling that I just couldn't explain. What about him would made me feel, I dunno, uncomfortable or threatened? Whatever the reason, I felt his "Kill Bill" role wasn't much of a stretch.

Because he was a loose cannon in real life subject to oh snap and going off.

Mr. Carradine would be IIRC the third or fourth westerner supposedly well versed in martial arts to be die from other than natural causes. One other was Kevin Smith who played Ares on the Xena Warrior Princess series.

I never really watched much of his stuff…only thing I ever watched was the Kill Bill series, and he did all right. I just have personal beliefs about suicide without justification I have no sympathy. Really David? Suicide…what a douche.:rolleyes:

If the reports are correct so far, it would appear there is evidence of something other than an intentional suicide. Dying because you were looking for a bitchin' palm job? To me that's more ridiculous and stupid than suicide in some cases.
