Carradine Tried Playing it Safe

6/9/2009 10:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

David CarradineWe've now seen a clear, uncensored version of the photo of David Carradine's body, and it reveals a powerful clue reinforcing the theory his death was an accident.

The rope around his neck is knotted in front -- common in the bondage community. We checked around with experts, who say a knot in the front is a telltale sign someone is not doing themself in. The frontal knot makes it fairly easy to quickly escape if they start losing consciousness.

9. At least he died doing what he loved. I pass no judgement, everyone deserves to be sexually satisfied and if this is how he does it, who are we to judge? He was a great actor and person.

I guess it would be o.k. with you to have sex with corpses. Sick.

Are there any sane people left in the U.S.? Or, just self-absorbed wankers who justify deviant behavior in typical juvenile fashion?

4. Carradine owes his entire Career to Racism - US White Boy Network
Style racism.

Bruce Lee lost the role in KUNG FU because Network Execs wouldn't
chance a real Chinese guy in a lead role... period.
Chinese actors were laundry folders or house boys back then (Hop
Sing - Bonanza... Hey Boy - Palladin)

Bruce Lee couldn't rise above The Star's assissstant in Green Hornet
(Kato).

Of Course Lee proved the White Mob in Hollywood wrong (as usual) by
becoming the world's biggest martial arts star and a virtual Film
Icon.

Needless to say... David Carradine will only be remembered as Well
Hung.

EllyMay #4,
WOW..you did your homework :) I knew about this but didn't know how many other people knew about this too.

You know what I find ironic? Bruce Lee was screwed out of the role in "Kung Fu"..then where does David Carradine Die?
ASIA??

David Carradine's family really just needs to drop the FBI investigation and the attorneys and all that, I know it must be hard for them, but it is obvious either they are in denial (except for the ex-wives) or are trying to save his name from being disgraced with his sick perversion (maybe both, who knows). There are a lot of real sicko pervs who do this.

What is really disturbing is that young people are doing this, it is called "the choking game", as far as I know they try to experience some kind of high when they hang themselves. The deaths I have seen from this, the kids are not unclothed or anything like that, they are just trying to get a high from the lack of oxygen to their brain, and they TRY and untie before they lose consciousness, it is really sad.

What is this world coming to? :( :( :(

As a Dr.,I am going to keep pointing out that until THE FBI and Dr.Michael Bodin investigate and do a second autopsy on Mr.Carradine.We don't know what happened to him.I wold hope that my own famile would call in the "Big" guns if something happened weird like that 2 me.Until,the truth comes out-can't we give his family some privacy? I see families in grief everyday and they don't even have to deal w wild.unfounded accusations.If it was his fault that this happened,then the TRUTH will prevail.

Like TMZ knows anything about playing it safe. You saw a high resolution of what? His backside? Hellllllllo TMZ those pictures of "David Carradine hanging" are FAKE, BOGUS, PHONY. I cannot believe for one moment that anyone would believe they are indeed real. The body is dark skinned, and a completely different body structure than Carradines. Then of course you have the flimsy, cheapo hotel in the picture. The Swissotel in Bangkok is a LUXURY hotel, they don't even HAVE rooms that are this cheap. You don't need a "high resolution" image to tell it's a fake. Even the Thai newspapers are calling it a fake at best, or a reenactment. See for yourselves....http://www.thaindian.com/newsportal/entertainment/thai-rath-photos-of-dead-david-carradine-fake-see-here_100202481.html

And see what the REAL Swissotel of Bangkok looks like...doesn't look like that cheap hotel room does it? http://www.swissotel.com/EN/Destinations/Thailand/Swissotel+Nai+Lert+Park/HOTEL+HOME/Gallery/Rooms
