    Actor David Carradine found dead

    http://www.cnn.com/2009/SHOWBIZ/06/04/obit.david.carradine/index.html?section=cnn_latest

    American actor David Carradine has been found dead in a Bangkok, Thailand, hotel, according to his personal manager, Chuck Binder.


    David Carradine became famous in the 1970s after starring in the television series "Kung Fu."

    Binder said Thursday that the death is being investigated but could provide no other details.

    Carradine, who became famous in the 1970s when he starred in the television series "Kung Fu," was 72.

    Modern audiences may best know him as "Bill" in Quentin Tarantino's "Kill Bill" films.

    A guy at work said some officials are ruling this a suicide. :(

    Most of us Mexicans will remember him as "el del Kung Fu", not "David Carradine". :( Q.E.P.D. el del Kung Fu.

    Binder told FOXNews.com Thursday that the cause of death is "under investigation." While there have been conflicting reports as to the nature of Carradine's death, That newspaper The Nation is claiming that an unidentified Thai police source said the actor was found hung in his hotel room from curtain rope in an apparent suicide.

    The Nation also reports that the hotel maid discovered Carradine's half naked body in a closet Thursday morning and that there were no signs of a struggle or assault.

    If it's true, I don't understand why he killed himself.

    Maybe depression.

    RIP.

    RIP :(

    I can't believe he'd hang himself, but I guess I said the same thing about Michael Hutchence and then it turned out it was possibly autoerotic asphyxiation.

    Never saw Kill Bill or Kung Fu. I knew him mainly from Wild West Tech. Came across as the complete opposite of someone who would contemplate suicide on that show.
