    Default "Bill" From Kill Bill Found Dead

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/8083479.stm

    Thai police told the BBC the 72-year-old was found by a hotel maid sitting in a wardrobe with a cord around his neck and other parts of his body.
    The US star was in Thailand filming his latest film, Stretch, according to his personal manager Chuck Binder.
    Mr Binder said the news was "shocking", adding: "He was full of life, always wanting to work... a great person."
    apparently he took his own life...shame...

    Loved him in Kung Fu: The Legend Continues, when I was growing up. But my were those Yellowbook commercials annoying.

    Sad to see him go.

    So was this a suicide or one of those 'sexual high' things gone wrong?

    That's sad, I liked that guy. I, too, watched Kung Fu: The Legend Continues. Really odd way to die, too. I hope they find out soon what happened.

    This morning on the radio they said he was found "pleasuring himself" and it went wrong. I'll try and find anything about the new developments.

    This is called "auto-erotic asphyxiation".

    Last report I read says that his hands were tied behind his back. I think that changes things a bit.

    That is suppose to be how Michael Hutchence, lead singer of INXS, died in the late 90's.

    It's hard to believe that's what a 72 year old man was doing though, but ya never know.

    There's a moral to this somewhere but I'm not sure what it is. Maybe it's for wives: "If your husband's in Thailand, let him get a hooker or else."

    Aside from the embarrassment factor (and he's dead so he doesn't care) I can think of a lot of worse ways to go out than while engaging in some bizarre sex act.

    Remember, he was raised in the Shao Lin monastery. He was capable of prodigious physical and spiritual feats. So it's hard to say exactly what he could have done with his hands tied behind his back.

    Also, he could play the wooden flute, and that's really difficult.

    A maid discovered Carradine's naked body hanging in a closet in his hotel room Thursday at Bangkok's Swissotel Nai Lert Park Hotel. Thai authorities have all but ruled out foul play, based on surveillance footage and interviews with hotel staff.

    A grainy photo published on the Saturday cover of the tabloid Thai Rath shows a naked body suspended from a clothes bar in a hotel closet, hands apparently bound together above the head and feet on the floor. The face is blacked out and other areas are obscured.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The photo is apparently authentic because the family has unleashed power attorney Mark Garagos on them...

    “David was very interested in investigating and disclosing secret societies. … What that means is connected to martial arts and his interest in martial arts,” he continued. “And so there is a suspicion that if there was some foul play, that that may be the first area where they should look.”
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!
