"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.
nothing wrong with kinkiness. except when it goes wrong..
A tragic macramé accident.
My question is:
What was he doing in Thailand in the first place?
He was shooting a moviw there.
Crap so that happened last night? Maybe “grasshopper” was undergoing some kung fu training? Imagine that, dying in bancock that way.
“When you can experience *release* from these ropes that bind you, it will be time for you to go”, Grasshopper.
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.
Will his insurance company see it that way, is the real question?
Hands - What Hands?
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.
Here is the Yellow Pages. Look under Private Detectives.
Bill Handel from kfi said it really funny: where’s the midget Thai prostitute?
When it went wrong I wonder if he was thinking dang their going to find me like this?
I don’t know ... .
Let’s let him rest in peace.
The guy was jaded, OK? let him rest in peace.
There’s kinky and then there’s KINKEE!!!!
