    Carradine, who became famous in the 1970s when he starred as traveling Shaolin monk Kwai Chang Caine in the television series "Kung Fu," was 72.

    The rope was believed to be from the hotel room curtains, Bangkok Police Lt. Col. Pirom Chanpirom said.

    He said investigators found no sign of forced entry into Carradine's room.

    An autopsy was being conducted at a Bangkok hospital, but no results will be available for another day, he said.

    Police provided Carradine's family with the same information about their investigation, said Tiffany Smith, Carradine's personal co-manager.

    Smith said she was "in complete shock" and that suggestions that Carradine took his own life are unbelievable.

    RIP David Carradine.

    I liked him in Kill Bill.

    It just goes to show that even those who apparently have it all can be suffering deeply inside. (if, in fact, he did take his own life).

    I watched him as Caine when I was a child. He was always so full of inner peace, it is hard to imagine the turmoil that must have been inside him to take this step. My heart goes out to his family and friends. :hug:

    It wasn't a suicide, unless people make a habit of stuffing things into their mouths and tying cords around their genitals before killing themselves. Very sad though :(

    Yea the way he did it seems more of a bdsm than suicide. But maybe that what he was going for. Anyways I use to watch the show where he was some kind of monk, and I liked him in Kill bill. He was def a good actor. Which he has said was surprising considering he seemed to have social anxiety real bad from what he has said.
