‘Kill Bill’ villain David Carradine found hanged in Bangkok hotelJune 5th, 2009 - 11:45 am ICT by ANI
New York, June 5 (ANI): David Carradine, famously known for his role of the mysterious assassin in Quentin Tarantino’s “Kill Bill”, was found dead in a Bangkok, Thailand, hotel room Thursday. He was 72.
The cause appeared to be suicide.
The martial arts icon, whose “Kung Fu” TV series reflected his signature combination of slam-bang action and calm reflection, had apparently hanged himself, reports The New York Daily News.
His body was found hanging in the closet, naked, with a curtain rope around his neck and another body part, by at the Park Nai Lert Hotel.
Early Thai police reports called the death an apparent suicide.
Carradine’s manager, Chuck Binder, however, disputed that.
It was “accidental,” Binder said. “He was full of life, always wanting to work … a great person.”
Reports in the Thai and British press suggested Carradine may have died after attempting an erotic asphyxiation act.
Carradine was born into Hollywood stock, son of actor John Carradine and half-brother of Robert and Keith. (ANI)
