Family asks FBI to investigate whether death of David Carradine was suicide

"Kung Fu" actor David Carradine's family has asked the FBI to investigate his mysterious death in Thailand.

Relatives don't believe Carradine - found naked in a Bangkok hotel closet with a rope tied to his neck, wrist and genitals - committed suicide.

"They want an investigation," said Mark Geragos, lawyer for Keith Carradine, brother of the "Kill Bill" star.

"I would think that the people in Bangkok would want to support an investigation and allow the FBI to go over there and assist in the investigation so we can get the answers to the questions."

Thai police said Saturday they have not been contacted by the FBI.

An autopsy was completed Friday, but results aren't expected for weeks.

Carradine's body was flown out of Bangkok early Saturday on a United Airlines flight bound for Los Angeles via Tokyo.

There is speculation the 72-year-old actor died during an act of auto-erotic asphyxiation in which the rope was used to heighten sexual pleasure.

His ex-wife claimed in court papers that he was a fan of "potentially deadly" kinky sex acts.

Filming a movie called, ironically, Stretched.

This is a wonderful use of taxpayer dollars and clearly within the mission of the FBI - to travel to a foreign land and investigate the kinky sex death of a has been American actor.

J. Edgar must be rolling over in his grave........well maybe not ....but I'm sure he would have saved the photo's

Look if he had a rope tied around his private part and his neck ... it sure was “kinky sex”.

What the family is questioning is why were his hand tied behind his back? Was someone else involved? Personally speaking, I doubt it. I am not into that kind of "kinky sex".

I was wondering that too ... if he needed sex, you can get whatever you want in Thailand ... . Solo “kinky sex” can is not necessary in Thailand.

Did David Carradine cross the Clintons? This is classic Arkancide stuff.

Radio report indicated he was naked and hands were tied behind his back. The only way that’s suicide is if it’s another Arkancide case.

I am already very tired of hearing about him. If it was something kinky, I simply don’t want to know. He’s gone. Let him RIP.

I hate the media circus we live in.

Of course it was not a suicide, it was an accidental death during an autoerotic act, of which there are hundreds every year. Police just love to answer these calls btw (not).

The guy was jaded, OK? let him rest in peace.
