The first version says was a suicide taking in ming he realized in an interview he tried to comitted suicide many years ago when he have drugs and alchol problems.
After that his agent said was a natural death but the autorities of Bangkok said after all this hypothesis, that what really happen was an accident when the actor David Carradine,he died for asphyxia when he was trying a masturbation by asphyxiation autoeroticism ( a kind of sexual estimulation to increase sexual pleasure ).
Anyway there is not still a final declaration of what really happen, maybe they could discover something new after all, by the first moment they said he was alone for that reason and give up apart suicide the other option was an asphyxiation autoeroticism practise that could make that David Carradine died.
Few persons know he also sings and was a very good sculture, painter.
David Carradine was a complete artist in many kind of arts from an actor a director but also like a musician, composer, painter, sculture, he lived for the art in wide variety.
For many of us he will be always Kwain Chang Caine, this character that when we were child we enjoyed to see for many hours, we lived his aventures with him.Remember the moment at the end when we saw him walking and his back continuing his way in the search of a new life.
And the word of his master “little grasshopper”.
