Carradine's Family Outraged Over Death Photo

6/7/2009 11:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

David CarradineAs if they weren't dealing with enough -- the family of David Carradine is now "profoundly disturbed" by the publication of a photo that appears to be Carradine hanging in his hotel room.

The photo -- which Thai police believe was taken by the forensics team -- appeared on the cover of a Thai tabloid called "Thai Rath." The photo shows a naked body suspended from a bar in the closet, with his hands apparently bound together above his head.

The paper did not identify the source of the image.

Carradine's brother Keith released a statement that says, "The family wants it understood that, per attorney Mark Geragos, any persons, publications or media outlets will be fully prosecuted for invasion of privacy and causing severe emotional distress if the photos are published."

DEATH by suicide in china is common and it is the most common form of sucide in china which leads the world in suicides.From 1995-1999 there were 287,000 suicides in china alone and for every suicide ten more tryed.A DEATH ERECTION a priapism is also common and can happen in the living from damage to the brain or spine.In SAMUEL BECKETTS waiting for godot a priapism is even joked about.The pain of death is eased by pleasure.I think he was making a statement about the suicide rate over there and NO one should be looking at a dead man`s PRIAPISM anyway unless some crime has been committed.I think the old HUNG FU master was handing his family(CLAN) a huge payday and making a statement in his death that he could`nt in his HUNG FU acting.HIS DEATH ERECTION and erotical death is not the issue the suicide rate in china is.

Just saw the photos. if that's a closet... geez they must have tiny clothes. if that is a luxury suite... man they must have lower standard. if that is david carradine... then he must have died his hair for the movie he was starring in. anywho how cruel to post the photo of a recent death. but i guess they did it because people like me wanna know, and see.

Now what now?    

This whole situation is very unfortunate. What he did in his personal time is definately his business, but when it can lead to an embarrassing death like drug abuse you have to be really careful. Its really not the tabloids that have put his family in an uncomfortable position. It's actually David's actions and I'm sure they are just as angry with him.

Leads the world in suicide by hanging and a DEATH ERECTION is common in hanging.He went to the land of suicide and joined,he was amking a statement I think they will find he was dieing anyway and DON`t loot and look at a dead mans DEATH ERRECTION it`s NOT a crime to have one.

Don't know how Thailand police can say that he was the only one in that room, if that is true then how can this man have his hands tied above his head????!!! Someone killed this man either on purpose or by accident. RIP David Carradine
