Thai Newspaper Publishes Shocking David Carradine Pics

by at . Comments

As if they weren't dealing with enough in the wake of his tragic death, the family of David Carradine is now "profoundly disturbed" by the publication of a photo that appears to be Carradine hanging in his Bangkok hotel room.

The shocking photo - which Thai police believe was taken by the forensics team - appeared on the cover of a Thai celebrity gossip tabloid called Thai Rath.

The photo shows a naked body, presumably that of David Carradine, suspended from a bar in a closet, with his hands apparently bound together above his head.

The paper did not identify the source of the image.

The suspicious death of David Carradine (1936-2009) remains shrouded in mystery, with an alleged photo of the actor's hanging marking the latest development.

The photo has yet to be published by any additional tabloids or websites.

Thai police have since said that accidental suffocation may be the cause of the actor's death after they discovered a rope around Carradine's genitals.

Tattoos on the lower half of his nude body can be seen.

Sources close to the actor told Radar Online that he had a history of engaging in auto-erotic asphyxiation, a sexual practice often involving a rope around the neck.

In response to the image, Carradine's brother Keith released a statement that says:

"The family of David Carradine wants it understood that, per attorney Mark Geragos, any persons, publications or media outlets will be fully prosecuted for invasion of privacy and causing severe emotional distress if the photos are published."


For anyone interested, there's a new book on Carradine's death called, "David Carradine: The Eye of My Tornado". It's written by Carradine's ex, Marina Anderson. I found it on Amazon.

Relax James ... are you a phsyco too ??! eat your face stuff oh my god anger management needed here hahaha!!! and use your spelling check stupid ass ;)


Its possible he tried erotic stuff to himself...but he only went too doesnt look like there was strangualtion here...since there was a rope around his private parts it goes on to show he played sexual games to himself...weird by sad for him.


Yes becuase everyon has sex in a closet?
if he was doing this to himself he would have been in the bed room or on the bed, yet he is in the wardrobe with his hands tied above his head and he is strangled, if you dont think he was murderd your more closeminded than a freaking Jehovas whitness.
You people need to open up and look at the facts.
This man was Iconic and Im sick of you bastards thinking your forensic scientists.Your silly little americans with no knowlage of the world. Dont make acusations and just wait for the profesionals to finish their job."it is evident.." Listen to yourself you pungent foot brush, you OBIOUSLY know EXACLY what happend cause you where there right?
Your lucky I dont hunt you down and eat your face you squrel sac!


It's evident that David was involved in some sort of kinky sex and was either murdered on purpose or died duriing the process and there is a cover-up. Eitherway, it happened in Thailand and there's probably little that can be done.


I think this is very disturbing that we have sick people out there who invade people's privacy by wanting to publish a dead person's body. I feel so bad for the David Carradine family & friends. All you people that are doing this and making up lies not telling things the way it really is should be ashamed of yourselves. Just remember you reap what you sow. I send my deepest sympathy to David's family & friends. God Bless! Love & Prayers
