David Carradine found dead

Carradine was found dead in Thai hotel, no further details

http://www.cnn.com/2009/SHOWBIZ/06/0...ine/index.html

I watched Kung Fu as a teen. in my memories that series really helped open a lot of western exposure to alernate religions and philosophy.

NO! NO! NO! I loved Kung-Fu as a kid, and David Carradine always struck me asthe kind of laid-back guy you'd actually want to know in real life.

RIP David

I believe Reuters is reporting it was a suicide, he was found hanged in his luxury hotel room. :-(

being found hanging in a closet sounds kind of hinky to me. NPR sue is not getting on that band wagon yet.

I think the details are still in flux, so no point freaking about rumors yet.

I shall miss David, and fondly remember Caine as the kind of strong and self-reliant character I'd like to be capable of being in an ideal world (or even a less-than-ideal one).

There are now more details on Wikipedia, updating often - it looks like an accident to me.
