David Carradine Dead In Bangkok: Found Hanged, Claims Report

Reports are still coming in mixed: original reports have him found hanging in his hotel room by a maid Thursday morning after not showing up for dinner with his fellow actors the night before. Official spokespersons for Carradine, however, have gone on record originally as believing it was natural causes, and later holding back any details out of respect for the family. Of course, this kind of behavior is perfectly understandable for friends and associates of Carradine, who no doubt would like to avoid a media circus surrounded the tragic death of such an esteemed colleague.

David Carridine is a personal favorite of the crew here at TMS!, and we will no doubt post an update this weekend, along with a look at our movie rememberances of an iconic actor and screen legend.

The last report i hear which has now been taken down is he was found with a rope around his neck and genitals. Natural causes? Hmmmm, we'll see...

Neck and Genitals? Where do you hear that update? It there is some truth to that, things could get a bit wacky here. I know that all suicides are investigates as if thy were homicides in the US, but I'm not quite sure how they roll in Singapore when it comes to invest gating dead movie stars.

If you do a seach for "Carradine neck genitals" there's a ton of articles that still mention it.

As opposed to my weekly web searches for "Lincoln foot genitals."

Wow, just came across these older comments. It appears that I was typing with my feet on this particular day.
