He played Kwai Chang Caine in Kung Fu among numerous other roles. Major bummer.

I heard he had passed but .............how did you make the leap to "apparent suicide" ?? Shocked


Little info available suggests natural causes, as far as I can see

The article I posted stated he was found with a rope around his neck and body. (click where it says "read more")

2-3 others I read stated it appeared to be an apparent suicide and no foul play was initially suspected.

I enjoyed his hosting roll in those Tech-West presentations on the History Chanel. I'll bet Bruce Lee's ghost isn't crying over this, however. He was supposed to get the roll that made Carradine in the TV series.

His brother, Keith Carradine, was the other host of Wild West Tech. I think they went half and half on that one.

Some news agencies are looking into whether or not he accidentally hanged himself duirng some sort of auto-erotic asphyxiation. Or whatever you call lit.

Some of the circumstances seemed a little off but I really didn't want to rush to a conclusion.

"Grasshopper, to know what you know and to know what you don't know, is to know."

Still remember that from the first season... we discussed in class at school the next day... early sixties ??

Quote :
Carradine was found with a rope tied around his genitals and another rope around his neck.
'The two ropes were tied together,' he said. 'It is unclear whether he committed suicide or not, or if he died of suffocation or heart failure.'

At my age, is this something I should share with my wife?

Who first discovered this method anyway?

The family says they suspect foul play, I heard it on the radio at work this morning. I'm not certain if any actual organizations are investigating or what the deal is though.

Not sure what that means, but I guess we shall see. Doubtless, it's gonna get weirder.

The saddest thing to me is that his legacy now won't be a fine body of film and tv work but rather being that old karate guy that was found dead with a rope attached to his head and junk. That in itself is a tragedy worthy of Shakespeare...
