Carradine Photo Reveals Fishnet Stocking

6/7/2009 6:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

David CarradineWe've just seen a higher resolution image of the photo that appears to be David Carradine's body hanging in his hotel room -- and it shows what seems consistent with an auto-erotica scenario ... at least from outward appearances.

The photo -- published by a Thai tabloid -- shows a body suspended from a bar in a closet, with his hands bound together above his head. Carradine's genitals were also tied.

But the new sharper image also reveals what appears to be fishnet stockings covering the body. You can also see red women's lingerie on the bed. And, it appears, Carradine may have been wearing a dark wig.

Although there are signs this could have been a sexual act that turned accidentally deadly, family sources say they are still suspicious of the circumstances and have not ruled out homicide.

He tied hs own hands and used slip nooses.
The cord going overhead controlled the pulling on his genitalia.

Who cares! Why are Americans fighting the truth about how he died? In Canada it was reported immediately that the police found him hanging.....but in the USA you guys said he just died..details unknown. Who gives a rats ass? Whatever!

It's just pretty sad that the only way this guy could get any sexual release was to dress up, tie up, and choke himself. And what is even more sad is that now the entire world knows, and his family has to live with it. A terrible end, indeed.

My God, TMZ. You have really missed the mark by a mile. I LOLed.

OK, first. That isn't a fishnet body stocking, it's loops that the Thai Rath photoshopped into the picture to obscure details. The pic you embedded is only the front page pic and was edited in this manner. What you need to see is the INSIDE pic, where it is CLEAR that there are no stockings. Though details are still obscured, much more about the body is clear.

#31/Distrubed: Speaking of, yes you sound like you are. So when did you obtain your medical examiner's license? And you have obtained all of the first-had knowledge how? You mean by the conflicting stories you've read? My how you have gone on in great detail. Perhaps you should fly to Bangkok to offer the police your wealth of knowledge. You have way too much time (among other things) on your hands to know so much about someone's death that happened 1/2 way around the world. So, were you in the room or what? Did you personally view the body? While you're busy throwing insults to others you ought to take a step back and re-read your comment. Just then you may realize how silly and foolish you sound too. So what you you really think happened to Heath Ledger? How about Marilyn Monroe, how about John Travolta's son? How about Anna Nicole Smith and her son? Who was really on the grassy knoll that sad day in Dallas?

NOt Stupid    

It isn't Carradine. That is some stupid photo of comeone else that someone had the bright idea to try and pass off as Carradine. It's of a much younger, shorter, stockier person, not a 72 year old man. THe way the bdy is tied doesn't even match the written description of the death scene in Carridines hotel room. Anyone who thinks this is the real deal is either blind, or excessively gullible.

typical    

The pictues this Thai "newspaper" posted are NOT Daivd Carradine!!! I've seen the photo. The body looks far too young and small. Carradine was a very tall man!! You can't even see his face. And the "wig"?!? COME ON! It's not him! This Thai tabloid is KNOWN for having a worse reputation than the national enquirer and doctors photos all the time. Come on TMZ...show a LITTLE intelligence in what you believe.

Serves the weirdo right. If he engages in this sort of risky business then he always ran the risk of f#cking it up one day. What a way to go! Just think, all those gorgeous Thai bar-girls down the road who'd be up for anything and this nutter wants to get it on with a wardrobe, what an idiot. By the way, it is common practice in Thailand to publish photos of dead bodies.
