Sad news to report this morning: Kung Fu and Kill Bill star David Carridine apparently committed suicide yesterday in Bangkok. He was found hung in a hotel room, according to Thai police, who believe he committed suicide. His agent, however, is saying Carridine died of “natural causes.”
According to National Multimedia, however, the 72 year old Carradine, was in Bangkok to shoot a movie and had been staying at the Park Nai Lert Hotel.
Reportedly, the film crew noticed his absence when they went to dine out at a restaurant and Carradine did not show up at the dinner. The team could not reach him, and assumed that he was taking a rest.
A hotel maid who opened his suite today at 10 am local time found him in a closet. He was described as behind half naked. Police say that he hung himself with a rope, the kind that is used with curtains.
Police said he was dead for not less than 12 hours and found no sign of fighting or an assault. Time will tell what his cause of death really was, but it’s all very sad, indeed. R.I.P. David Carridine.
