In Memoriam - David Carradine
Cult actor David Carradine is no longer among us. I grew up watching "Kung-Fu" and he is in plenty of my favourite movies...
On June 4, 2009, Carradine was found dead in his room at the Swissotel Nai Lert Park Hotel on Wireless Road, near Sukhumwit, in central Bangkok, Thailand. The initial police report indicated that Carradine had committed suicide by hanging himself; he was found by a hotel maid sitting in a wardrobe with a cord around his neck and body. Carradine was in Bangkok to shoot his latest movie, Stretch, but the film crew were aware of his absence when they went to dine out at a restaurant on June 3.
It's really a sad end...
I have no idea what happened, and if it's really a suicide what have pushed him to commit it. Maybe it's just a grim coincidence, but one of his last roles in a movie, called My Suicide
