Kill Bill star

oystery surrounds the death of ‘Kill Bill’ actor David Carradine, whose body was found hanged and half-naked in the wardrobe of a Bangkok hotel room. Local police sources suggest the oscar-nominated star took his own life, however, David’s manager Chuck Binder insists, “We can confirm 100% that he would never have committed suicide. It was an accidental death. Everybody is in shock.” Reports that David, who was 72, had a rope wrapped around his neck and genitals suggest the actor was attempting auto-erotic asphyxiation, a risky practice where someone achieves heightened sexual pleasure by restricting their air supply. This is the same thing that is rumoured to have killed Aussie rocker Michael Hutchence back in 1997.
