An autopsy on actor David Carradine has ruled out suicide as a cause of death. Michael Baden, an American forensics expert who carried out the autopsy in the US, concluded the singer died of asphyxiation.
Auto-erotic asphyxiation is among the theories circulated about the cause of Carradine's sudden and shocking death while working on location in Thailand last month. Carradine was discovered in a hotel closet with his neck and hands bound.
"The cause of death was asphyxiation, an inability to breathe. Now why that happened is still what were working on... He didnt die of natural causes, and he didnt die of suicidal causes from the nature of the ligatures around the body. "So that leaves some kind of accidental death," Baden said.
The results of the first autopsy on the body, which was carried out by authorities in Thailand, are yet to be released.
I didn’t know he could sing. Could be a mistake.
Michael Baden is an old and trusted name in this business. Some of the politicians in NY used to hate him, because he told the truth.
I suspect that, whatever the final decision, the moral of the story will be: Stay away from kinky sex.
I’ve got all his albums.
If the price of fame and fortune is to become a bored pervert, then I prefer to be a working stiff with a strong sense of right and wrong.
I guess there's worse ways to go.
Its when you “fall in love” with your car while the motor is running and the carbon monoxide gets you.
parsy, who says that was easy to figure out.
Time to learn something new.
Erotic asphyxiation refers to intentionally cutting off oxygen to the brain for sexual arousal. It is also called asphyxiophilia.
READ ABOUT IT HERE ( if you dare ):
Thanks so much for that link.
Shame on you! I had such a vanilla explanation for it!
parsy, who bets you told the other kids about SC when you found out.
If it was auto-erotic asphyxiation, then he wasn’t having sex, he was masturbating.
They already knew in Thailand
Seems as though the distinction between suicide and accidental death is sometimes pretty fine. And this would be one very close to the line. I mean, what’s the difference between intending to kill yourself and voluntarily engaging in behavior that has an extremely high probability of causing your death? I know. The sound of one hand clapping...
Thanks for the laugh.
To have so much - and be so pathetic...
I just hope when I'm 72 my stiff is still working.
If you were into this kind of thing, why wouldn’t the first thing you’d think about having within arms reach be a pocket knife with a decently sharp blade?
