David Carradine Update

Carradine family seeks FBI, forensics expert help - Yahoo! News: "The family of David Carradine is asking a private forensics expert and the FBI to help investigate the 'Kung Fu' actor's death, attorney Mark Geragos said Saturday, the same day Thai police said surveillance footage indicated no one had entered his hotel room before he died.

Carradine's brother Keith met Friday with the FBI and filed reports that could lead to the agency opening its own inquiry, said Geragos, who represents Keith Carradine. Once the body is back in Los Angeles, the family will also seek a private autopsy by famed forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden to determine whether another person could have been involved, Geragos said."

I guess I don't understand the mechanics of this. A few stories claim that Carradine's wrists were bound. Unless he relied on some Rube Goldberg creation wouldn't that require help from another person?

I've been thinking the same thing, Ed.

A hooker.

If it was a hooker that bound his wrists, she would have showed up on the surveillance footage.

Latest theory: Ninjas. More or less, anyway. It's getting weirder by the day.

Soon as I heard this I knew it was auto-erotic asphyxiation. And no, not from personal experience.

How sad to be embarrassed by your own death....
