Carradine "Gasper" theory confirmed.

So it's true. The Bangkok Post (warning, graphic)
"American actor David Carradine might have died from auto-erotic asphyxiation, Central Institute of Forensic Science (CIFS) director Porntip Rojanasunan said on Friday morning.

The 72-year-old actor's body was found inside a closet in his suite in Swissotel Nai Lert Park Hotel about 11am on Thursday.

One end of a shoelace was tied around his penis and the other end fastened around his neck, while his hands were bound with a cord which was also tied around his neck.

He could have been be trying auto-erotic asphyxiation and may have suffocated during the act, Kunying Porntip said.

She said other evidence supporting this theory included a penis shrine inside his room.

She did not believe anyone else was involved, but admitted she could not be 100 per cent sure.

Carradine arrived in Bangkok a few days ago to star in a new movie, Strand."
Of course with the way the story has trickled out piece by piece, the notion that David was alone when he died, should not be entirely trusted. Murdered? Maybe. Accidental death with a participant? Also a maybe. In my book someone who flirts with death for a thrill gets what they bargained for. What a legacy to be remembered by.

Probably a hooker was there for part of it, but left when he "got boring".

The AEA crowd should get the message by now to leave a suicide note talking about how depressed they are and just can't go on and leaving the world as they came into it (naked). Then if they accidently go too far, they don't make the headlines, "Joe died while masturbating".

Planing ahead. Be kind to your decendants.

"How did your dad die?"

"Ummmmm, uh....."

All of us have unseemly untidy details to our lives, but when you're 72? Please. You ought to care enough about your relatives not to place them in an awkward spot like that.
