Carradine's Family Asks For FBI Support

6/6/2009 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

David CarradineThe suspicious circumstances revolving around the death of David Carradine are being asked to be investigated by the FBI by the late actor's family.

David's family wants the FBI to step in, in part because of reports of how the actor was found in his hotel room. The family hopes that with the FBI aiding Thailand police with their investigation, more concrete answers surrounding his cause of death may be located.

Although at first ruled as a suicide, additional evidence may suggest an alternative explanation. According to David's manager, the actor was found with his hands tied behind his back.

As of now, Thai cops have not been contacted by the FBI.

I have to say growing up I enjoyed watching David on his show Kung Fu. He brings back memories of me and my dad watching his show and enjoyed watching him wooping the bad guys ass. he was truly a gifted actor.

Remember, he was the "Kung Fu" guy, he probably learned how to tie himself up when he was snatching pebbles from Master Po's hands!!
Just saying....................

His manager was not there. They are doing their best to try to spin the story because it's embarrassing for him to have died during a sex act, horribly embarrassing.
They are doing more harm than good though. Instead of shouting "murder!" they should have spent this time reflecting on his life and moved on. His manager should be ashamed.

I don't believe that he commited suicide. I believe that it was set up to look that way, I hope they find the killer. I liked David and I still can't believe that he is dead.

It would be less embarrassing to know a family member committed suicide than to discover they were caught-up in a part-time repulsive sexual lifestyle. Unfortunately, the secrets will come out now and there will be a strong message in this story for those who, also, participate in a sexual manner that is not fueled by heart-centered LOVE. Our soul and physical body are meant to be honored, respected, and celebrated during the sex act not subjected to darkness. Whether heterosexual or homosexual (there is no inbetween and, yes, we are one or the other), our soul through the body should be honored, expressed with dignity, and celebrated in a loving way.

If one of the five wives knew the secrets, the others have known, too. Because he made so many films, the fifth wife, manager, and others who have a financial stake in his over 200 films will attempt to rewrite his secrets so as to capitalize on the monies. Question your own mental stability when next you consider buying one of his movies and participating in violence while lining the pockets of others with your hardearned money.

R.I.P., David Carradine!

Oh please why bring the FBI in? To save the family embarrassment from a shameful death?
I realize the stigma attached to auto erotic asphxsation, but this is how the man died...damn
it happen, God bless his soul, just because he is an actor don't mean he wasn't possible of this
Hell, actors, celebrities are kind of narcissitic and freaky anyway, I don't place them on some pedal
where they are perfect ...damn why does the media hype this freaks anyway? And the public eats it up
..then when one of them show their real human side, the reaction is impossible? no, not them? they have
too much money and fame? what the hell does these have to do with anything?

As others have alluded, this is the family trying to manufacture cover for David's deviant sexual behavior. Good job, TMZ, on getting the facts out.

i am thinking the speculation/preliminary reports that david carradine died of autoerotic asphyxiation is just a cover-up for the first death by a possible new pandemic scare of "kung flu" ..........
