David Carradine's Rep: Death Was 'Accidental'

6/4/2009 4:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We just spoke to a rep for David Carradine, who claims the actor's death was not a suicide.

The rep said David's death was "accidental." And there's this ... the BBC is now reporting that David's body was found hanging with a rope around his neck and "other parts of his body."

Carradine's body was found nude, hanging in a closet.

David's rep added, "We can confirm 100% that he never would have committed suicide. It was an accidental death. Everybody is in shock."

I really think it was half and half...He was probably into all that kinky sexy bondage stuff....(you'd be amazed what people do to themselves to get "off") i think it was done on perpose and was taken way too far... Whoever was with him, fleed and left the hotel.

This comment goes out to all the dumb ass idiots that want to make fun of Davids death. For one, he did not kill himself and two, how could any of you people make a joke of this? How would you feel if something like this happened to one of your loved ones. You are sick, disgusting idiots that need to be taught a lesson. Have some sympothy. Oh thats right, people with black hearts don't have sympathy.
One question, is Robert Carradine (star of Revenge of the Nerds) related to David Carradine.

It's shady to say the least!

suicide - one of the top 3 stupidest things I heard today on NBC

The guy had everything to live for.

He had got himself clean and into fitness years ago and was going to shoot a film in tailand in two weeks.

I heard from my buddy who works at MTV. He knows one of his groupies. He was found with his hands tied swinging in the closet of his hotel with an apple in his mouth.

tai mafia - thier version of a mexican necktie

Common in tailand I guess. They are well known for killing porn actresses this way. They probably know who is responsible but are paid to say suicide or whatever. They don't care either. Those responsible will never come to justice. Just counting their cash.

What a waste of life just for the insurance money on the production.

His talent will be missed.

Kill Bill is a classic.

I truly believe this was murder. Someone else had to be involved. With his hands tied,he could not perform any autoerotic act. So, someone had to be assisting him, probably a prostitute. If a prostitiute was involved so was a pimp, and a least one member of the hotel staff. They said no one saw anything or anyone entering or leaving his room. Of course, they wouldn't have if they had help from the staff. Let's face it, Bangkkok, is well known for the availiblity of any and all sexual acts. The hotels cater to their patrons requests, its their bread and butter. I hope they find those responsible. I believe it was definitely murder.

Wow, that is embarrasing, what a horrible way to die. However, I feel however he likes to get busy is his own business....

Accidental death from some bizarre masturbation thing is what it really is.

I don't believe it was a suicide, nor do I believe that David Carradine's death was "an accident" ! If it WAS an ACCIDENT he would not have been strung up in the hotel room closet like a scarecrow, he would have been left on the bed ! Nor do I believe that he was having rough sex with a prostitute and things got out of hand. Have you SEEN Thai women? They are TINY ! There's NO WAY a Thai woman could over-power somebody like David and string him up like that ! He may have been 72 yrs. old, but he was MORE THAN capable of self-defense ! He must have had more than one person in the room with him to do that ! I smell a conspiracy a mile long ! I feel so badly for his family for the INSENSITIVITY on the part of the Thai government, the paparazzi, and bloggers on here ! You people who are trying to ASSASSINATE David Carradine's character AFTER his horrific death - is paramount to disgusting ! Don't go casting stones at HIM when MANY PEOPLE in this country go to sex shops, strip clubs, Playboy mansions, and enjoy rough sex ! I'm not "into" that auto-asphyxiation stuff, or heavy bondage and extreme foreplay, but it is VERY COMMON for people the world over ! I've heard nasty "rumors" about Bruce Willis and Christopher Walken, but I would NEVER wish them to die like David did ! I will put myself on the line here for that great, talented, man and say - I BELIEVE DAVID CARRADINE WAS MURDERED ! I love and miss you, Mr. Carradine ! Rest in peace, Caine !
