Second Autopsy -- Carradine Death Accidental

7/2/2009 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

David CarradineA private autopsy performed on David Carradine's body suggests the actor's death was accidental.

Forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden said the cause of death was from asphyxiation -- and that binding on his body helped rule out suicide. Baden said Carradine's hands were tied above his head, not behind his back -- but he still needed more information from Thai police to completely rule out the possibility he was killed by someone else.

Carradine was found hanging naked in the closet of his Bangkok hotel room on June 4.

David Carradine was a cool guy who died in his 70s after a full and productive life. Regardless of his sexual peccadillos, he did a lot of good stuff. Can't say the same about that freak that's dominating the news here lately.

Michael Baden and Henry Lee find in favor of who is paying them. Remember they were both paid by OJ Simpson and that is how they gained their fame. NO WAY would I ever believe anything that came out of either of their mouths. Whoever has the money is the finding that they find for. Dirty doctors.

That is what happens when you listen to INXS in a hotel room by yourself.

Death by sexual misadventure, it happens. He probably had done it before and lived, so he tried it again, and woops, he went too far or his luck ran out. Either way he died by his own hands, so to speak,and the family is covering up his dark side. . Wow,what a way to go! But worse yet, the family has to live with that as his legacy. So very sad when you think about it a little more.

How is it an accident when someone had to have bound him while he was hanging? He wouldn't be able to do it himself! So who bound him and left??????????????????

I can't believe all of the press that MJ got over his death! David Carradine should have had a better send off than he did. Same for Farrah. What is our world coming to when we bow down to a sideshow freak who was a junkie and liked little boys and yet bad mouth someone who's never done a thing wrong (that we know of) to another person. People need to get their priorities straight.

Rest in peace David Carradine.

I was sad when David Carradine died, unlike how i feel about Michael Jackson. I grew up watching his series in the 70s. I wouldn't be into martial arts if it wasn't for him and I couldn't care less about his sexual kinks. Cool guy.
