David Carradine Found Dead

carradineTV Legend David Carradine has been found dead. The actor’s large span of roles included his iconic portrayal of Kwai Chang Caine on the show “Kung Fu.” Carradine would go on to play his own grandson in the follow up series “Kung Fu: The Legend Continues.” In his later years, Carradine became something of a pop-culture staple appearing on Lizzie McGuire, Danny Phantom, and a Jonas Brothers video, while continuing to appear in pivotal one-off “event” roles in films like Kill Bill – he was Bill – and Crank: High Voltage.

Carradine was in Thailand preparing to shoot a new film and apparently hung himself with the cord that controlled the curtains in his hotel room. So far, no one has come forward with any indication that the 72-year old actor had been suffering from any form of depression or mental illness. An ex-wife, Marina Anderson, was quoted as saying “I feel something is wrong David was always very happy when he was filming. So, I don’t understand why he would commit suicide at this time.”

The report of suicide is not an official ruling at this time and seems to have originated first from the hotel staff that found Carradine’s body, and the police who took their statements. The medical examiner in Thailand is expected to release the final autopsy results in two days.
