    Family of actor Carradine seeks FBI help

    Family of actor Carradine seeks FBI help

    The family of actor David Carradine has asked United States authorities to help unravel the mystery of his death, amid conflicting reports about how his body was found hanging naked in a Bangkok hotel.
    Mark Geragos, a Los Angeles attorney who represented Carradine's brother, Keith Carradine, said the family has contacted the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and filed a formal request to have the FBI contact authorities in Thailand for further information.
    "They've done it because of the conflicting reports and the nature of those reports that have given the family great pause," Mr Geragos said.
    Speculation about the death of Carradine, 72, who starred in the 1970s US television show Kung Fu and the more recent Kill Bill movies, has deepened since his body was discovered on Thursday (local time) by a maid in the Bangkok hotel suite where he was staying while filming the movie Stretch.
    With coroners awaiting results of toxicology tests, Thai media pointed to suicide or accidental autoerotic asphyxiation as possible causes of death.
    Mr Geragos said Carradine's family had no more information than what had been written and said in the media, which was why they were seeking the FBI's help.
    "I wish for them, and their sake, that they did [have more information], but it's the opposite," Mr Geragos said.
    "They are getting reports that both seem conflicting and evolving."

    Mr Geragos said Thai authorities must invite the FBI into the investigation and he did not know how long that might take.
    The family has hired forensic pathologist Dr Michael Baden, a former chief medical examiner for New York City who appears on cable TV show Autopsy, to look into the death when Carradine's body returns to the US
    Thai television said the body was flown home to Los Angeles early on Saturday, which Mr Geragos confirmed.
    Bangkok police said it could take several weeks for coroners to confirm exactly how Carradine died.
    Carradine, the son of the late character actor John Carradine, enjoyed a long career on Broadway, TV and in films.
    But he was most famous for his role in Kung Fu, playing Caine, a martial arts specialist who wandered through the American Old West seeking wisdom and beating up bad guys.

    which is why they must invite the FBI. I somehow doubt they will though.

    FBI not needed in Carradine probe
    7/06/2009

    Thai police have defended their handling of the investigation into the death of David Carradine, after the US actor's family urged the FBI to step in and assist the probe.


    Flowers are placed on the star of actor David Carradine on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles, on June 4. Carradine, best known for his roles in the 1970s TV Western "Kung Fu'' and Quentin Tarantino's two "Kill Bill'' movies, was found dead in a hotel room in the Thai capital Bangkok.

    Police say they suspect the star of the 1970s television series "Kung Fu" died in a sex act that went wrong after his naked body was found Thursday in his Bangkok hotel room with rope tied around his neck and genitals.

    A lawyer for the brother of the 72-year-old actor said at the weekend that the actor's family had met US Federal Bureau of Investigation officials to ask for help to discover exactly how Carradine died.

    "I am confident we are working on the right track. US embassy representatives saw every step of the investigation process in the hotel room," Police Colonel Somprasong Yenthaum, who is leading the probe, told AFP.

    He said Carradine's relatives had the right to seek help from the FBI, but added that the bureau would have to contact Thailand's attorney general who would then decide whether to forward the request to the police.

    "We can work with FBI if they request and their request is passed. But if they don't come, we can do our jobs," he added.

    Police are still awaiting the results of laboratory tests which will take between three and four weeks to come through before they can make an official conclusion about the cause of death.

    Carradine was in the Thai capital to shoot a film called "Stretch" when he was found dead in the wardrobe of his luxury hotel room last week. His body was repatriated on a United Airlines flight early Saturday.

    An initial autopsy report revealed that the actor died from a sudden lack of oxygen and his body showed no signs of struggle.

    Mark Geragos, a lawyer for Carradine's brother, Keith, told a CNN talkshow on Friday that the actor's family rejected early reports that the actor had committed suicide and had met with FBI officials.

    "They're looking into it through the FBI and trying to get to the bottom of this," Geragos said. "The family and Keith specifically doesn't for a minute think he was suicidal."

    The actor was best known for his role as the fugitive half-Chinese Shaolin monk Kwai Chang Caine in the 1970s TV drama "Kung Fu" and for playing the title character in Quentin Tarantino's "Kill Bill" movies.

    The roles earned Carradine a fourth Golden Globe "Best Actor" nomination.
    He was married five times, most recently in 2004, and was the father of two daughters.

    It's not. It's not Carradine and it's not a 4-5 star room. Just a photo of some poor bastard who suffered a similar death.

    So, everyone noticed the shabby hotel room & no-one noticed the longish, curly black hair???

    Carradine had sparse grey hair, folks.


    Having said that, just confirms my long-held belief that those involved in any way with Thai language newspapers are amoeba that live in the faecal orifices of pond sucking scum. They're below contempt.

    And exactly which lab tests take 3-4 weeks to come through? Yup, folks, the BiB have it all in hand. No need for the FBI. All they need is someone to point in a pic & they'll know exactly what happened...

    He must have dyed his hair because it looks dark. Actually the person in the pic looks more like a Thai than a European.

    From what I can gather here and there, maybe you are misunderstanding the situation!

    They probably need the FBI to "unravel" the string around his balls, it's probably stumping the local BIB idiots. Probably too tight to get in their with a machete.

    Just think, a few days ago if someone mentioned his name you would immediately think of the kung fu guy, now millions of people will always remember him as the guy who tied his cock to his neck or something

    Hypothetically, what if the family were alble to pursue a full investigative follow-up, and found out things that caste an unsavoury light on the deceased? Then what....

    If he has been in Hollywood all these years and there was the slightest doubt about his character, it would have been known long time ago.

    No they won't. As far as I'm concerned he'll be remembered for that fine actor portrayed in the Kung Fu series most of us oldies enjoyed as children.....that righteous type doing anything to avoid a fight but when pushed would beat the fuck out of 10 plus. I hope the FBI do come in an exam. Don't think the Thais realised the exetnt of this man's credentials befor ecasting off thier weak verdict.
