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."

If your going to go by autoerotic asphyxiation … what better place than Bangkok!
I’m thinking: “It’s all part of the plan!” …He’s got my vote for a posthumous life achievement award. 200 points for that one …you go Bill !

Probably kinky bondage sex gone wrong, and the woman/man slapping him around while he was suspended got frightened and ran off.

BRUCE LEE is somewhere laughing his ass off now I'm sure now because David took his role in Kung Fu.

Auto-erotic asphyxiation is a fairly common form of sexual arousal. Whether or not he died doing it, it isn't an abnormality at all. As Americans, we love sex, yet somehow associate anything sexual with shame. Adding a belt to the bedroom could be compared to adding mustard to a burger. No big deal. People should get over the negative connotations of sex and learn that it's just a sport, and all for fun. So long as everyone involved in the sexual activity consents there will be no harm done.

Notice the phrase "other parts of his body" is in quotations...
They're talking about his penis. Now imagine tying a rope around your neck AND penis... and then trying to self- asphyxiate yourself in order to ... well you know. Must have learned that move from Quentin.

BREAKING ENTERTAINMENT NEWS--- ASSOCIATED PRESS REPORTS----

Carradine's death has quickly gone from tragic to comic...He won't let this event slow him down, however. David's just signed on to star in Weekend At Bernies 4 - Thai A Yellow Ribbon 'Round the Old Guy's Neck and Death Race 2009 (The entire movie takes place in a closet)
In Death Race 2009 all of David's male co-stars are homosexuals who refuse to come out...

I had this happen to a relative of 16 years old. It happens. I hate to say, but #53, you are a sick mf and I'm laughing my ass off! #52 might be on to something. If you're that old and famous, why do it yourself?

This just in...Todd42

Strangling yourself with a belt or rope isn't sex ... it's deranged behavior... bending a sweet plum over and drilling for oil is sex... and we American Boys ain't got no problem talkin' 'bout dat.
Get some help before you're found swingin' from a Hat Rack.
