David Carradine Death Not Suicide – The alleged suicide death of David Carradine was not suicide, but an accidental strangling.
Carradine’s death has all the hallmarks of auto-erotic asphyxiation, or masturbation enhanced by strangulation, which when it goes wrong is often mistaken for suicide.
The David Carradine auto-erotic asphyxiation hypothesis fits the evidence better than a straight suicide because why would you include a loop around your genitals, then kneel to hang yourself and then fall back into the wardrobe instead of just hanging yourself from a higher position.
The pain from the rope tightening around your genitals as you pass out is supposed to “jerk” you back to consciousness so you don’t accidentally kill yourself.
Everyone assumes Carradine committed suicide because he’d talked of his fascination with staring death in the face before, including this 2004 interview:
“Look, there was a period in my life when I had a single action Colt 45, loaded, in my desk drawer.
And every night I’d take it out and think about blowing my head off, and then decide not to and go on with my life. Put it back in the drawer and open up the laptop and continue writing my autobiography or whatever. But it was just to see.”
Thai police said the 72-year-old actor was found by a hotel maid sitting in a wardrobe with a cord around his neck and genitals.
Carradine’s body was taken to Chulalongkorn Hospital for an autopsy, with initial autopsy results to be released in two days.
The actor was in Thailand filming his latest film, “Stretch”, according to his personal manager Chuck Binder, and was staying at a 5-star luxury hotel in Bangkok, Swissotel Nai Lert Park.
And that’s the latest news on the actor’s unintentional death, David Carradine Death Not Suicide.
