Pictures of David Carradine’s Dead Body Published
I think the headline speaks for itself. On its cover and inside pages, an overseAs tabloid published photos of David Carradine’s body, naked and hanging inside his hotel room wardrobe.

Update Monday June 8th, 2009
Another woman from David Carradine‘s past is talking about the actor’s penchant for auto-erotica — claiming he would spend days planning to construct elaborate sexual devices.
Carradine’s third ex-wife, Gail Jensen, dropped more personal bombshells in an interview with Patricia Towle this weekend, saying “David was pretty strange. He would like to get tied up. He would tie himself up and I would walk in and see him and say ‘Oh my God, David, you got to be kidding me — and I would (turn around and) walk out. I would leave him to his own devices.”
Jensen added, “He liked to be tied up. And he could tie himself up … He spent days planning a different feature. He would go to a hardware store and buy the stuff.”
We spoke with Jensen, who told us although David liked tying himself up “it was never sexual.” She says he liked bondage but never choked himself. Then again, they divorced in 1997.
Last week, TheSmokingGun.com published legal documents from Carradine’s 4th wife, detailing David’s “potentially deadly” sex habits.
David Carradine‘s hands were tied above his head when he died — turns out, in the world of auto-erotic suspension, it’s an easy task to master.
Brent Turvey, a forensic scientist and criminal profiler who has studied auto-erotic asphyxiation, has examined the photo of Carradine’s body published in a Thai newspaper. The photo shows the body with a rope around his neck hanging in a closet … Carradine’s hands were tied above his head.
Turvey says it’s simple for someone to tie rope around his/her hands, by loosely tying the hands in front — then raising them up to tighten.
Turvey says undoing the knot is easy as well, allowing for a quick escape.
Turvey says, “By tying his hands above his head, and bending his knees in a sitting position, he can easily stand up and untie his hands with his teeth. Choking in this position is an accident that usually results from the rope being left on the neck a few seconds too long.”
Since we first reported Friday that Carradine’s hands may have been tied, there has been a lot of speculation it’s evidence of foul play. But apparently it’s actually consistent with accidental death.
We’ve just seen a higher resolution image of the photo that appears to be David Carradine‘s body hanging in his hotel room — and it shows what seems consistent with an auto-erotica scenario … at least from outward appearances.
The photo — published by a Thai tabloid — shows a body suspended from a bar in a closet, with his hands bound together above his head. Carradine’s genitals were also tied.
But the new sharper image also reveals what appears to be fishnet stockings covering the body. You can also see red women’s lingerie on the bed. And, it appears, Carradine may have been wearing a dark wig.
Although there are signs this could have been a sexual act that turned accidentally deadly, family sources say they are still suspicious of the circumstances and have not ruled out homicide.
