    Did Someone Kill Bill ?

    'Kung Fu,' 'Bill' Star David Carradine Dies
    Reports Emerge That Actor Was Found Hanged In His Bangkok Hotel

    Kung fu movie legend David Carradine, who recently revamped his career in Quentin Tarantino's 'Kill Bill' movies, has died at the age of 72. David Carradine made his career the foot-fist way, with legendary roles in 'Kung Fu' and 'Kill Bill.' Carradine was found dead in his hotel room in Bangkok, where he was set to shoot a new movie titled 'Stretch.' The Nation newspaper, citing Thai police sources, is reporting that Carradine was found hanged in his hotel closet and that it may have been a suicide. There's been no other confirmation of that report so far, and Carradine's agent told KABC that he believed the actor died of natural causes.Thai police also told the BBC that Carradine was found by a hotel maid "with a rope around his neck and body." The Nation report claims that a preliminary police investigation found that Carradine hanged himself with a curtain cord, and that he was dead for at least 12 hours when he was found. The report also states that there were no signs of assault or foul play.Carradine's manager, Chuck Binder, is calling the news "shocking." He said that Carradine "was full of life, always wanting to work," and that he was "a great person." Carradine's career is a vast one, with over 200 movies and TV shows to his credit, including the hit '70s show 'Kung Fu' and years later, more than 80 episodes of 'Kung Fu: The Legend Continues.' His breakout film role came in 1976, when he played Woody Guthrie in the biopic 'Bound for Glory.' Younger fans will likely know him as title character 'Bill' in Tarantino's 2003-04 'Kill Bill' movies, where he played the leader of a group of assassins and was eventually killed by one of his own disciples. Carradine also dabbled in production and directing, and had roles in many television commercials.The Carradine name has had a long history in Hollywood. David's father John Carradine and his brother Keith have also had showbusiness success.

    I know I'm a sick puppy but does anybody else see the amusing irony in the fact that he was working on a movie with the title of "Stretch" ?

    Police Lt. Gen. Worapong Chewprecha told reporters that Carradine was found with a rope "tied around his penis and another rope around his neck."

    "The two ropes were tied together," he said. "It is unclear whether he committed suicide or not or he died of suffocation or heart failure due to an orgasm."


    That's comforting. It's sounding like he died doing something he loved.

    Sounds like a case of autoerotic asphyxation which is an accidental death often mistakenly classified as a murder or suicide. Practioners of autoerotic asphxation rig up eloborate nooses and restraints to ultimately deprive themselves of air while masturbating , which is said to heighten the level of orgasim. Sometimes the victims does too good of a job with the hanging part and law enforcement ends up with a dead body. If the report is accurate , he came and he went.

    bingo...i just said that in another thread.
    in the warriors code there's no surrender, though his body says stop, his spirit cries...NEVER. deep in our souls, a quiet ember, knows its you against you, its the paradox that drives us all. its a battle of wills, in the heat of attack, its the passion that kills, and victory is yours alone.


    the posts and opinions stated by me do not in any way reflect the values, beliefs, or views of my department. they are simply opinions and/or observations which have been developed through my personal experiences. hell, most of the stories probably arent even true...wink wink

    Chokin' the chicken at both ends isn't a good idea.
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.
