David Carradine was destined for the silver screen from infancy because it was in his DNA. His father was famous actor John Carradine. His brothers are also actors Bruce Carradine and half-brother of Keith and Robert Carradine as well as the uncle of Ever Carradine and Martha Plimpton.  Carradine starred in over 100 films and was nominated for four Golden Globes in his sensational career.

David was working on set of a new film Stretch in Thailand where he was staying at the Swissotel Nai Lert Park Hotel on Wireless Road, near Sukhumwit, in central Bangkok, Thailand. According to the official police report the maid went to check the room and found David Carradine’s lifeless half naked body. He had apparently hung himself. Sources have states that David seemed “in good spirits” and there has not been any information that has been disclosed as of yet as to a reason to why he would end his own life. There has been no reports of a suicide note. The speculation is that David Carradine died from Autoerotic Asphyxiation. Autoerotic Asphyxiation refers to intentionally cutting off oxygen to the brain for sexual arousal. It’s pretty kinky and obviously dangerous stuff. Lead singer on INXS Michael Hutchence death was also rumored to have died from this although his death was ruled a suicide as well.

I don’t believe in writing ill of the dead so I’m not going to go off on how mind-boggling it is to get sexual pleasure from cutting off oxygen to your brain while masturbating. What????#&*$#*)&()YE&@&^#)*$3874318?????? I just don’t understand it nor do I want too.

I will express that it does invoke a displeasing visual that is really not cute. Thank goodness for You Tube. I found a great clip of Carradine’s acting so I can quickly replace those gross thoughts with good ones.

Whatever the cause of death was for David Carradine, he left behind a wife, children, brothers, and an amazing repertoire of work. If there is any consolation at all through his work his legacy will live on.
