Carradine's Rep -- David's Hands Were Tied

6/5/2009 12:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

David CarradineNow we know why David Carradine's family thinks foul play may have been involved in the actors death -- his manager tells us Carradine was found with his hands tied behind his back.

Chuck Binder, Carradine's manager, tells us he firmly believes Carradine did not take his own life -- nor does he think David died accidentally. Binder says the family has been told Carradine's hands were immobilized by the rope.

Carradine was found by a hotel maid Thursday morning with a rope tied around his neck and another around his genitals in a Bangkok hotel room.

UPDATE: Thai police are now recognizing David's death may not have been a suicide, by saying, "It is unclear whether he committed suicide or not or [whether] he died of suffocation or heart failure." Police say he could have died from an "accidental suffocation."

UPDATE: We've been told by the U.S. Embassy in Bangkok that David's body was shipped back to the States Friday evening (Thailand is 14 hours ahead of PST).

Not everyone hung naked with hands tied behind them in a closet, in a country known for kinky sex, HAS TO BE a perv.

It sounds like kinky sex. How disturbing. And now the whole effing world will know he was into really kinky sex. Man I'd be proud of that if he was my dad. NOT!

That part of the world has a reputation for kinky stuff. It's sad, because his family will never know if he was murdered or if it really was an accident that happened during "fun" times.

Someone, probably a hooker, was in that room with him and something went terribly wrong and she booked.
