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.

The photo is clearly not him. The black wig everyone is talking about is not a wig, it is his face and head being blacked out.
What everyone is calling fishnets is not fishnets.....it's either their way of trying to distort the body in the photo or just real poor quality photo. The skin tone is way to dark and healthy looking and there is NO WAY that is a luxury hotel room (and they claim he stayed in a LUXURY hotel room).
I do not believe he was murdered. I do not believe this was suicide. I do believe he had odd sexual taste and sadly practiced these dangerous activities without a partner present and paid for that mistake/pleasure with his life.
The fact that he had odd sexual taste does not make him a bad person or a freak. He hurt no one but himself...
RIP David

This is sad. This dude obviously had a fetish and because he lost his life fuffilling this fantasy he is going to be remembered for this private act and not all the work he completed. This death is traggic and shouldnt be the precipice of his career.

Who among us without sin, should cast the first stone.

Clyde Kenneth Clark    

This aberrant sexual behavior was described in a divorce declamation by one of his wives. He'd been married 6 times, I believe and shacked up with Barbara Hershey for 3 or 4 years and an incestuous relationship with a family member all show he could not establish and maintain a relationship with any woman for life. That sends a message, added to the manner in which he was dressed at death and hanging himself accidentally? He was one sick freak. I'll miss his acting, however - he was good in his roles but lousy in real life. Does that bring to mind many other actors/actresses? It seems to go with the job of acting - they're good while in character but not so good in their real skins.

Going over the posts it seems a lot of the commentators in this forum have forgotten somebody died here. There are family members or people in real life who loved this man that may be reading this.
Most passionate people, creative people and highly intelligent individuals have an appetite for more creative sexual behaviors. The child molester Westley allan Dodd summed up this best when he said its how we are wired. He didnt know if it was from birth or from ones experience but he admitted he was attracted to young boys the way most adult men are attracted to young females. You could no more take that attraction away from young males to young females as you could take, his attraction for young boys. Dodd admitted if given the opportunity he would absolutely molest and kill again. Now dont get me wrong here i am not comparing David Carradean to the child molester Westly Allan Dodd. They are totally at two separate ends of the spectrum. Actually not even in the same universe. I am just saying you dont have to understand Mr. Carradean's fetish but in reality who was he hurting? This was something wired into himself that he couldn't control. Much like any of us that have sexual preferences. Are we all sexual deviants damned to hell for having fetish or preference? Does doing only the missionary position give you the key into heaven? What turns your cranks behind closed doors is no bodies business unless you involve children or unwilling partners into it. This is clearly not the situation the unfortunate Mr. Carradean was found in. Why is there so much interest in the private life of Mr. Carradean's sexual fetish? . Sadly his life is going to be summed up by the very private manner in which he lost his life. Obviously he pushed the fetish deep into the red zone. I dont understand the how so many of you have drawn the conclusion that Mr.Carradean was obviously a sexual deviant? How exactly does this make him a sexual deviant? He was by himself not hurting anyone there were no children tied up next to him.
Quite frankly I have come to the conclusion, if God didnt want you to touch yourself he'd made your arms shorter and it wouldn't feel so damn good! There are two types of people. Those that do and those that lie. You and God both know which type you are. Am i damned to hell for spanking the monkey while giving samples for our IVF baby just born this past may? or was it the sticky pages of porn i was trying to look at whilst trying to produce my sample? I am a man created by God and try to live my life in a manner that would please my creator. However, I would be shocked to find God was keeping track of my masterbattion sessions. To me God should be doing much more important work. Perhaps i am wrong dead wrong here and God is so busy keeping track of all us sexual deviants masterbattors ......its no wonder the worlds gone to hell in a hand basket. Maybe we should have another spanish inquisition. We could burn all the homosexuals. Cross dressers anyone that didnt quite fit the mold. We could all dress in black and white have short hair make everyone die their hair blonde. We could beat our wives into sub-serviant drones and go back to the days all the Islamic Fundamentalist all pray for. Just because you dont agree with something or understand it, doesnt make it deviant. Its just life in all its splendor and colour.

Too funny these pictures are FAKES or re-enactments. To quote from a Thai newspaper...."The photographs(scroll down), which have seen the Carradine clan have their lawyer publicly warn publications of lawsuits, appear to be nothing more than a fake at worst, or a re-enactment at best.The photographs displayed by the Bangkok tabloid show a man with dark skin and black hair, naked and suspended by a rope tied around his wrists and attached to a clothes bar inside what appears to be a cheap closet. A bed is less than one meter away from the closet and the room has a wooden floor - all hardly the stuff of a suite in a prestigious hotel such as the Swissotel Nai Lert Park."

After seeing the "Carradine" picture, it is hard to believe anyone believed it was real. Here's a link to it if you haven't seen it....http://www.thaindian.com/newsportal/entertainment/thai-rath-photos-of-dead-david-carradine-fake-see-here_100202481.html Here's what the real Swissotel looks like...http://www.swissotel.com/EN/Destinations/Thailand/Swissotel+Nai+Lert+Park/HOTEL+HOME/Gallery/Rooms

Sad that the family was duped this way, and that TMZ jumped on the bandwagon before the facts were known.

To NOT A FAN in particular but in general to all. I've been to Thailand many times and, while it is an adult Disneyland with some of the most beautiful ADULT women in the world, I have yet to see any signs of the "pedophile city" those who have never been there love to talk about. I'm not saying that it's not available there because, as in most underdeveloped countries, anything can be bought for a price. Thailand has some of the most happy and hospitable people you could meet and an amazing and interesting culture that both my wife and I love. Too bad people love to comment so forcefully on subjects they are completely ignorant of.

A story I read said that he was found with his hands bound behind his back. The picture in question has the subject's hands bound above his head. I agree with those who claim the photo is fake. Look at the real hotel that one of the blogger's linked for us to check out. The hotel is so much nicer than the alleged hotel in the photo. I know that reasonably intelligent people post here so I am a bit baffled by those who seem to believe the photo is real.

The pic of a person hanging in the closest is not David Carradine. The body is small in size and to short. In the first report David's hands were tied behind him, now they come out and say they were tied together above his head on the closet pole. The hand were said to be tied to the pole, so it could coincide with the fake pic? I do not see how some one could die of any kind of hanging with his hands tied to the pole. His hands above his head would make it very hard in my opinion. Try and see if I am wrong Harvey. Man who is with out sin, cast the first stone. Now David may have been a sexual deviant, maybe not. I can not say. But it come to divorce now days any one and every one says whatever they can to win and damage the other persons character. How can people call David a sexual deviant when they are probably the same people who give a high 5 for homosexuals. Now that is deviant behavior.
