David Carradine hung himself

By brendon June 04, 2009 @ 6:33 AM


“Kill Bill” star David Carradine was found dead in a Bangkok hotel room yesterday.  At this time there are conflicting reports as to how he died, but at least one source is saying it was suicide.  MSNBC says…

A spokesman for the U.S. Embassy, Michael Turner, confirmed the death of the 72-year-old actor. He says Carradine died either late Wednesday or early Thursday, but he could not provide further details out of consideration for his family.
The Web site of the newspaper The Nation cited unidentified police sources as saying Carradine was found Thursday hanged in his luxury hotel room and is believed to have committed suicide.

Thankfully he was in Bangkok to film a movie, because that’s the only good reason a white guy would travel alone to Bangkok.  Details are still really sketchy at this point, but I assume the movie was a Big Mommas House sequel.  I would definitely do what David did if I had to live through that every day.

    If I was him I would have hung myself back when they cast me in a role with Uma Thurman.

    Is it natural to die when you hang from a rope around your neck?

    I’m sure he died of something natural.

    There is nothing “unnatural” in Bangkok.
