Autopsy Finds Carradine’s Death Not A Suicide
AP Report ^ | June 11, 2009

Autopsy finds Carradine’s death not a suicide Independent investigator says more information needed to rule on cause

LOS ANGELES - The forensics expert hired by David Carradine’s family has concluded that the “Kung Fu” actor did not commit suicide, but said Thursday that more information was needed from Thai investigators before the cause of death could be determined.

Carradine’s brothers, Keith and Robert Carradine, each read part of a prepared statement to reporters from The Associated Press at a Los Angeles hotel. In their first public remarks since their older brother was found hanging in a Bangkok hotel room closet last week, they thanked supporters and asked for privacy.

“This is a devastating loss for our family and we greatly appreciate the compassion pouring in from all over the world,” Keith Carradine said.

They also released a statement by Dr. Michael Baden of New York that indicated a second autopsy determined Carradine didn’t kill himself.

“However, to reach a final determination as to the cause and the manner of death we must wait for further information from Thailand as to the scene findings and the completion of the crime laboratory and toxicology studies that are still being performed,” Baden’s statement concluded.

So apparently Carradine wasn’t hung.

Which would be worse? To be known for dying by suicide, or by auto-erotic-asphyxiation?

A woman who was married to David Carradine for 15 years said that he liked to tie himself up and was quite good at it. He made a mistake the last time he did it, and that, as we now know, was the last time he would ever do it.

Except of course that Baden didn’t “perform” an autopsy but rather has read reports about the “scene”. Note that the key information is still at the lab. These pay for play guys will say anything

I choose: living to a ripe old age and dying by natural causes.

Where was that choice in your multiple choice question, huh?

Insurance money notwithstanding, if David’s death turns out to be a homicide, his family deserves justice.

Yea, give Dr. Baden some camera time and a sordid story and he’ll say anything to keep the cameras rolling. No doubt he’ll get some time with Greta in the next few days talking about autoerotic asphyxiation. And no doubt Geraldo will be jealous.

Report: Thai tabloid David Carradine photos show fishnets, wig, women's lingerie

The snapshot is disgusting. It is not shown in this article, presumably because the family has threatened to sue any media outlet who publishes it, but it did make a Thai tabloid and it is widely available on the web.

Grasshopper may not have committed suicide, but it's pretty obvious that he killed himself.

He ate at an automat, then took an automobile (with an automatic transmission) to his room to engage in auto-erotic activities. They then performed an autopsy.

Did you see a common thread here? The clues are everywhere.
This was no suicide my friend.

Kwai Chang Caine died of fluoride poisoning.
