In Thailand, Thai police sources revealed Friday… Murdered Kung Fu Star David Carradine death accidental: a sex act gone wrong!
Actor David Carradine — best known for his role in the 1970s cult TV series “Kung Fu” and action films like “Kill Bill” and “Crank: High Voltage” — was found dead in a luxury Bangkok hotel in Thailand.
A maid found the late 72-year-old actor’s nude body hanging in a closet in a luxurious suite at the 5-star Swissotel Nai Lert Park hotel, where Thai police sources stated a rope cord was meticulously tied to his neck and genitals, possibly resulting in his death due to accidental suffocation or heart failure.
Carradine’s strange death may suggest the legendary actor may have been a sado-masochistic who succumbed to extremely dangerous sex fetish known as asphyxiophilia (or autoerotic asphyxiation), during which time he anticipated to be only temporarily suffocated prior to his ejaculating or reaching a euphoric state of sexual gratification.
At this time, Thai police has not confirm whether preliminary D.N.A. testing has been completed to determine if Carradine had ejaculated: the discovery of semen is a very important factor, which could establish whether the actor was engaging in autoerotic asphyxiation, which also claimed the life of INXS star Michael Hutchence in 1997.
Although Thai police sources revealed the late actor’s death was related to a sex act gone wrong, a US embassy official would only confirm Carradine’s death and stated that the official cause of the actor’s death has not yet been determined. According to Thai police sources, they speculated Carradine’s death was caused by “accidental suffocation“, not suicide
A Thai coroner had completed an autopsy, which is due to be officially released in less than 20 days, at which time toxicology results will also be released.
Ironically, the actor was working on his latest film in Thailand called “Stretch” prior to his untimely demise.
Carradine was born John Arthur Carradine. The eldest son of veteran Hollywood actor John Carradine, he was a leading member of a Hollywood acting dynasty, which included his late father, brother Bruce, and half-brothers Keith and Robert.
The actor is deemed to be an iconic figure to many fans, martial arts enthusiasts and Tai Chi practitioners since his portraying Kwai Chang Caine [虔官昌 Qián Guānchāng] — half-Asian a Shaolin master, highly proficient in the martial arts — in the American TV series Kung Fu, for which he earned an Emmy nomination.
Many of Carradine’s loyal fans would often describe the actor as an affable guy. Because of his role as a Chinese mobster in Crank: High Voltage, some movie goers have mistakenly thought he was Asian-American, a myth in which some of his longtime “Kung Fu” fans believed over the years.
