David Carradine was a pervert

david carradine dead

As originally suspected (by me and the BBC article before it was changed), David Carradine’s death was “accidental.” BBC first claimed that the rope David hung himself with was wrapped around his neck and genitals. “Genitals” was later changed to “other parts of his body.” TMZ added that Carradine’s body was found naked in a closet.

Just a short while ago, David’s rep said, “We can confirm 100% that he never would have committed suicide. It was an accidental death. Everybody is in shock.”

This pretty much confirms either autoerotic asphyxiation or that he should have chosen a safe word that the Thai hooker understood. Carradine must have been shouting “banana” for at least five minutes before he lost consciousness.

  • What a fucked up world, when it is thought to be less shameful to die while performing a perverted sex act than to commit suicide. carradine was a pervert, why couldnt the old bugger just have a normal wank like everbody else. silly old. theres no fool like an old fool!

  • Banana Lover

    BANANA!!!! hahahaha

  • I am a blogger on the scene in Bangkok at the hotel where Carradine died and am blogging about this on


    The announcer for the BBC breaks the story on TV. David Carradine was found dead in the Swiss Hotel on Soi Nailert. The film star was found in the closet of his room bound by curtain rope around his neck, and the inference is that his genitals were bound as well. The news ran through the Bangkok film colony like a forest fire.

    I consult investigative journalist David Walker. He is also a screenwriter and author of the cult classic book, Hello My Big Big Honey. Walker is at the hotel. He has already led a CBS crew to legendary film producer-director David Winters penthouse office. Winters is a dear friend of Carradine from their glory days in Hollywood. Walker wants to see the surveilance tapes. No chance Bagger Vance. Dr. Pornthip, a colorful Thai forensic scientist is on the scene at the hotel. Walker says Pornthip, who is famous for sporting many hued punk hair styles and is a bit of a celebrity,delares the case to be death by auto sexual strangulation.

    I roll up to Winters penthouse office. He is devastated by the tragic loss of a dear friend. He has not slept. CBS and People Magazine have already come by to solicit intelligence. David is shocked by the tawdry inferrences. He has spoken to 3 of Carradines agents. The agents declare that Carradine was on the roll of a lifetime. Quentin Tarantino redefined the 72 year old actor in Kill Bill. Carradine recieved a Golden Globe nomination for his work with Tarantino. The actor of the classic cult TV series Kung Fu had starred in 13 motion pictures since Kill Bill. His salary was in the stratosphere.

    The strange circumstances of the verdict by auto- sexual strangulation trouble Winters. It takes two to tango. Why indeed would a man of his talent take his own life alone. Bangkok is known as a city with love for sale. Film people come here to shoot and avail themselves of the pleasures to be found in the gilded city of sin. Kinky sex is no big deal. Could this be a coverup for a sex robbery murder. The Royal Thai Police have shut the door on this case all too quickly. The tourist industry has been severely damaged by the recession and political instability. The murder of a famous film star would be a final nail in the coffin of the tourism industry. Winters says that Carradine, son of John , iconic members of an American cinema dynasty were above the fray. David Carradine was according to Winters a consumate gentleman, a brilliant actor, and a man for all seasons.

    I run into local film producer Tom Waller at a reception hosted by the Italian Embassy. Tom does not believe in the verdict of death by auto-sexual strangulation. He concludes that it was a sex robbery gone wrong, and that to cover the motives the body had been arranged to fit the profile of death by auto- sexual strangulation, a theory once confined to the genre of novels classified as psychological thrillers. The denizens of the film colony in Bangkok are incredulous at the grisly circumstances of the sad demise of this brilliant talent.

    The reception is attended by beaucoup des artistes and cineastes. Film critic Nick Palevski and I schmooze at the bar. Between glasses of vino rosso and spumante Nick expresses his distaste for the tawdy belching of the media and press. He is the critic for Auteur, a web site devoted to film criticism. He can not believe the shabby and sensational manner in which this case is being exploited.

    In no way is this story meant to impugn the reputation of the Royal Thai Police, their meritorious service is well known. Nor is it meant to slander the bereaved Carradine family. The American Embassy has issued a statement wishing the family the best in this tragic moment, embassy staff have no other conclusion re this case except the finding of the body. Aristotelian logic might conclude that something is rotten in Denmark. Western countries would conduct a far more sophisticated investigation.

    The epilogue is delivered by my dear friend in Santa Monica Martin Zweiback. He is a writer- producer director with 50 years of credits in Hollywood. Martin scrpted the original Kung Fu series and is a close friend of David Carradine. Martin is a gentleman of class and distinction. He often graces the Bangkok film colony with his presence. It is fitting that a cineaste of his stature have the final word in this affair. I recieved this e mail from Martin, and with all due respect to this fine bloke it is represented here below as a final testament to this sordid affair.

    Antonio, my friend,
    Sorry I’ve been neglectful about keeping in touch of late.
    Thinking about Carradine this day, I recall when writing the Kung Fu show, how often his image inspired the words, and how much depth he brought to them. They sometimes had to pour him onto the set but he never read a line wrong. He was a gifted and underrated actor. I saw him at a screening of Kill Bill not too long ago. He seemed vibrant and clearly excited by the “second chance” Tarantino’s film had given him. Suicide in the middle of shooting a movie at this point in his life just doesn’t compute — but it does remind us to count our Blessings, Gifts, and Challenges — and be careful what we wish for.
    With All Good Thoughts,

  • Romuours of him being a sexual deviant have persisted for years. If you will read his divorce filings online in 2003, you can see that one of the reasons hiswife divorced him was “Deviant Sexual Behaviour that potential deadly consequences” and an incestous relationship with a close family member.

  • In a country like Thailand or the Philippines, there are gorgeous, willing women all over the place…who needs to do whatever weird shit he was doing.

    A picture released by the Thai tabloid show Carradine body suspending from a trail in a closet, with his hands being tied above his head (not behind him like some stupid people claimed). In addition, his genital was also tied with a rope.

    It appeared that the Carradine’s body was covered with fishnet stockings. A red women’s lingerie was also seen on the bed. There is speculation that he might have been wearing a dark wig. I guess this is part of Carradine’s so-called “Eastern spirituality”.

    The answer is simple, he wasn’t into women, he was into taking care of himself.
