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."

The hotel reportede that the maid found him hanging by the neck with a cord that had been removed from the drapes in his room. His room was locked from the inside so foul play has been ruled out. He was a third rate actor who has had an on again off again career. He admitted to addiction to booze and drugs in the past. Clearly a suicide.

It is the same way the lead singer from INXS died. I personally have tried (a few times) autoerotic asphyxiation with someone applying graduating pressure to my throat when I was about to climax. Trust me, its a whole different orgasm. I never attempted it by myself or with someone I didnt trust. That $hit can be dangerous!!!!

RIP...Why couldn't he just use viagra? At 70, it's hard to get a normal erection but erotic asphyxiation is not the answer. This is a sad and embarrassing way to go. However, at his age he should've known that hanging yourself can kill you.

Nude accidental asphyxiation = Autoerotic asphyxiation.

This makes no sense to me...he was over 6 ft tall...the poles in closets are not over 6 ft high from the floor! If he was having problems breathing, why wouldn't he have stood up??? Was his

I apologize, PantGravy, if that is your real name. I suppose you're the one with a background in Psychology and Human Sexuality... all of that coursework I did was in vain, I've been defeated by the internet. Woe is me.
