Remember when David Carradine was found dead, naked and hanging in a closet as a result of autoerotic asphyxiation gone wrong? At first, people suspected that this was an accident. Then they suspected it was the work of ninja assassins from a cult David had pissed off. Now it’s looking more and more like it was the work of closet ghosts.
In an interview filmed four months before Carradine’s death, David suggested that a ghost lived in his closet. The interview will be shown as part of a series called Celebrity Ghost Stories airing on BIO.
In the segment, Carradine recounts how, after he married Annie (his fifth, and last, wife), strange noises started emanating from their bedroom closet.
“I think [Dana] was hanging out in the closet, and sometimes when I walked into that closet . . . it would be cold in there, unreasonably cold,” Carradine says.
In another segment, Carradine recalls how he went into the “icy cold” closet, where Annie kept some of Dana’s old ties.
“One of the ties was turned around and it had a little logo attached to it . . . that said ‘Grateful Dead,’ and I thought, what does he mean by that?” Carradine says.
“It was obviously a joke, that the dead were grateful . . . it was the only way he could communicate [that] he now felt like everything was settled, the kids were taken care of and I was gonna be there for them,” Carradine says.
“And I will be.”
First of all, what the hell is David doing “hanging out in the closet?” Second, David must have majorly pissed off that ghost to have it kill him and then reposition his body to make it seem like he hung himself while whacking off. Did he bang the ghost’s mom or something?
