I didn't notice this being posted, so I thought I would toss it up.

David Carradine found dead in wardrobe

I posted the UK article over CNN because they went into more detail about his death.

Thai police told the BBC the 72-year-old was found by a hotel maid sitting in a wardrobe with a rope around his neck and other body parts.

10 minutes ago this part said genitals!

I'm thinking that it likely was a straight-up suicide, as he had stated in interviews that he had considered jumping off a building or shooting himself before. Not out of depression, but out of having no fear of death. He said he was having a great time even when he considered suicide, and it was a "why not? I'm not scared of death" thing. He also stated that being dead would be an impediment to getting some things done he wanted to do, but maybe he had finally gotten everything done and just went with the "why not?".

A friend of mine went to a party at Davids house when he was in LA and said the guy was nuts, this doesn't surprise me.

Sounds to me like this is a case of Erotic asphyxiation. I knew those Thai girls were freaky, but damn!

Seconded, I bet he hired some hookers and started doing some freaky stuff and it got out of hand.

I saw him using the restroom at Mad Anthony'd Brew Pub in Fort Wayne IN about ten years while he was shooting part of a movie.

I didn't notice any rope tied around his neck or junk at that time.

Same way that Michael Hutchence of INXS died. At least he died and doesn't have to look anyone in the eyes after ALMOST killing himself whilst having a wank.
