FBI permitted to assist Thai officials in investigating Carradine’s deathJune 9th, 2009 - 6:13 pm ICT by ANI
London, Jun 9 (ANI): Agents from the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) have been given permission by Thai officials to help them in their investigation of ‘Kill Bill’ star David Carradine’s death.
But the FBI agents will be there only to observe the proceedings, as the Thai officials attempt to determine the circumstances surrounding the actor’s tragic passing.
Carradine, 72, was found hanging in his Bangkok hotel room on June 4, and contradictory reports emerged as to the cause of his death, with some saying he committed suicide, while local police believe he died accidentally while taking part in a dangerous sex act.
The actor’s family last week then requested for the FBI’s involvement in the investigation, urging authorities to assist the Thai police investigation to prove the star had no intention of killing himself.
“The FBI can observe or ask Thai investigators to investigate certain points, but it cannot run its own investigation or collect evidence,” the Daily Star quoted Thailand’s senior attorney general Sirasak Tiypan as saying. (ANI)
