David Carradine’s family were the first to publicly say that the actor’s death was foul play, but it appears the Thai police are leaning that way as well. In addition to his neck and genitals being bound with rope, Carradine’s hands were also tied behind his back. TMZ reports:
Chuck Binder, Carradine’s manager, tells us he firmly believes Carradine did not take his own life — nor does he think David died accidentally. Binder says the family has been told Carradine’s hands were immobilized by the rope. Carradine was found by a hotel maid Thursday morning with a rope tied around his neck and another around his genitals in a Bangkok hotel room.
UPDATE: Thai police are now recognizing David’s death may not have been a suicide, by saying, “It is unclear whether he committed suicide or not or [whether] he died of suffocation or heart failure.” Police say he could have died from an “accidental suffocation.”
Jesus Christ, who was he having sex with, Bear Grylls? How many damn ropes do you need to jack somebody off? I hope the Thai authorities find something soon, because at this point, it’s hard to tell from this story if it was a hooker or somebody trying to earn a merit badge.
