David Carradine The family of the late David Carradine seem to be outraged over the pictures of David’s dead body that were published by the Thai newspaper Thai Rath.

The Thai Rath newspaper, which is a regional newspaper published in Bangkok in Thai language, ran disturbing pictures of Carradine’s corpse in the front and as well as in its inside pages. The pictures published on the Saturday cover of the newspaper Thai Rath shows a naked body of Carradine suspended from a clothes bar in a suite closet. The hands apparently bound together above the head and feet on the floor. While the face is blacked out, other more explicit parts of the picture are censored. And, the relatives of late Carradine do like any part of it.

“The family is outraged about the release of these photos,” said the lawyer for the Carradine family. The lawyer further added that the “family will be filing a suit for invasion of privacy and emotional distress if the David Carradine death photo is run in a United States publication.”

Carradine’s dead body discovered on Thursday, 4th June inside the closet of his suite by a chambermaid at the Bangkok’s Swissotel Nai Lert Park Hotel. The authorities were immediately alerted, who after some investigations, ruled out foul play saying that the cause of death could be suicide.

However, the family is not satisfied with the investigations done by the Thai police. According to Mark Geragos, an attorney to Carradine’s half brother Keith Carradine, “The family will seek an independent autopsy by famed forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden to determine whether another person could have been involved.”
