Family outraged over publication of David Carradine death photo

The family of the late actor David Carradine are reported to be outraged over a picture of his body published in a Thai newspaper.

The Thai Rath newspaper, a Thai language newspaper published in Bangkok, ran the picture on its front page (above), and a larger version inside the paper. Although we’ve seen the larger version, we won’t be publishing it, although the front page gives some idea about the shot without breaching privacy. The image shows Carradine hanging, although does censor some of the more explicit parts of the shot.

A lawyer for Carradine’s family said that “The family is outraged about the release of these photos” and that the family sue for invasion of privacy and emotional distress if the David Carradine death photo is run in a United States publication.

Carradine’s cause of death is still unconfirmed. The body has been flown back to the United States and will be examined by a forensic pathologist for more details.
