whilst performing an extremely dangerous martial arts discipline, John Artur Carradine, famous actor of such TV show as "Kung Fu" and movies such as "Kill Bill", has passed away on June 3rd 2009... cry

I will always remember him as the humble Chinese immigrant, who helped to teach the bad cowboys a good lesson: no gun blaze necessary to achieve glory... may they finally get the message...

R.I.P. Kwai Chang Caine

No he wasn't.

He was found, at the bottom of a wardrobe, with a dressing gown cord round his neck, trousers round his ankles and a shoelace around his genitals, in a hotel room in Thailand.

Unless auto-erotic asphyxiation is a new martial art...?

Khunying Pornthip Rojanasunand, a Thai forensic pathologist and Director of Central Institute of Forensic Science, stated the incident met four of the criteria for accidental death involving autoerotic asphyxiation. Police Lieutenant General Worapong Chewprecha, Commander of the Metropolitan Police, remarked that the closed circuit television installed within the hotel supported the theory that no other persons were involved with the death.[18][19][20][21] Carradine's representative and family members told the press that they believed the death to be accidental and not a suicide.[22] However it has also been reported that Carradine was found "with his hands tied behind his back."[citation needed] Chuck Binder, Carradine's manager, indicated neither suicide nor accident was the likely cause since "the family has been told Carradine's hands were immobilized (behind his back) by the rope."[23]

Carradine was in Bangkok to shoot his latest movie, Stretch, and had been known to join the film crew for dinner. The crew noticed his absence when going out to dinner on June 3, but assumed he was simply taking the night off.[2]

Lots of speculation (tied hands behind the back... to the extent of "immobilisation"... ) but yea, it's definitely nothing I'd want to go into detail here...
