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).

The QUESTION is... what was on the foot that left a print on the bed? Dirt? Liquid? Blood?
Was the footprint Male or Female? Was it fresh or stale?
I guess what I'm getting at is... was it OJ's?

I told you yesterday. Asian hookers will go back to your room for an apple and a Snickers bar. Carradine tried his Kung Fu moves on them when they tried to roll him and he wound up in the closet with a rope around his neck and his schween.

ok, ok.....am I the only person here with an IQ sufficiently above 100 to solve this thing. It's sooooooo obvious this was murder and I KNOW who did it. A certain individual has been going around for years saying they were going to off this guy. The yellow and black ropes are conclusive evidence as this individual is known for wearing a jump suit of the same colors around Asia while searching for David. Duhhhh! Find Black Mamba and you have yourself the murderer. Duhhhh!

Of course if it was a solo sex act that took out the Grasshopper.......now THATwas a five-point palm exploding-heart technique!!!

thailand is known for inexpensive prostitution; and the people are poor (that's why they are prostitutes). also they have a high rate of child prostitution. look -- he was an actor (so he was perceived to be very wealthly, in a poor country) ; i think he was having kinky sex with a prostitute -- some consensual like a form of bondage; and the prostitute probably saw an opportunity to rob him and killed him or it was death by accident during the sex act. you know that's the situation. he won't be the first or last person to engage in this sort of thing.

When I saw a headline saying that David Carradine was found dead I automatically believed it was a heart attack or something that was health releated. I do not buy the suicide suicide story.
