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."

Having gotten that out of my system, alone hanging naked in a hotel room in Asia at 72 is a sad way to die.

BTW, TMZ, having lots of trouble getting my comments posted. Repeats, etc. Get it together.

Suicide clause usually only matters during the initial 2-year contestability period. Even then, the policy owner gets all the premiums paid back, as though the insurance policy never existed. It's called rescission. If after the 2 years, and there's no suicide exclusion, then it's probably still a valid claim.

If auto-erotic asphyxiation, then the cord was most likely tied to the doorknob, and he was barely dangling enough that his weight crushed the air passageway. I've seen a few cases like this - it tends to always happen in overseas hotel rooms.

Umm, I think I would rather people think I committed suicide than I was jerking off and accidentally hung myself. Some publicist. Oh well, guess he has nothing to lose; David can't fire him.
