Late actor David Carradine may have died from a sex act gone wrong, instead of suicide as earlier reported.
Thai Police are reported to have said that Carradine was found with not only a rope around his neck, but a rope around his testicles as well. Thai Police had first thought the cause of death was suicide after finding Carradine has been hung, but a lack of suicide note, and the rope around the testicles suggest that an auto-erotic act may have attributed to his death.
Carradine was in Thailand to shoot a film called Stretch, and failed to appear at a dinner with the crew Wednesday evening. A maid discovered Carradine’s body 10am local time Thursday.
An official description from officials said that Carradine was found naked, curled up inside a wardrobe with one end of a shoelace tied around his penis and the other end fastened around his neck. Both of his hands were bound with a cord which was also tied around his neck.
There is also some suggestion (besides Carradine being tied up) that another person was in the room when Carradine died.
