Bangkok? Hanging? Perhaps a sexual erotic act gone bad like the singer of INXS?

Wikipedia already saying, “David Carradine (December 8, 1936 - June 3, 2009)[1] was an American actor.”

“was found hung “

WTF?! Fox News just said that his agent said he died of "natural causes".

If he was found dead with a katana and hordes of asian kung fu minions at his feet, that would be a more natural death than hanging for David Carradine!

I’ll always remember his role a a drunk in Scorsese’s “Mean Streets.” He did this as a favor to the young director, as said movie lacked stars (although it did launch the careers of DeNiro and Keitel).

He was in a small movie produced locally recently. We heard he had a hard time keeping sober and showing up on time.

I hope it was of natural causes. Would like to believe that he died peacefully and not a suicide.

I took his deposition once for two days in the 1980’s. The guy was stark raving bonkers. He also had an aversion to paying his bills.

Dunno... BNONEWS still quoting thai police as saying suicide. Maybe his friend didn’t know or didn’t want to say that it was a suicide.
