An explicit photo of David Carradine snapped after his death shows the 72-year-old actor hanging nude in a closet of his Bangkok hotel room with his hands tied in front of him.
Thai police say the picture is probably a leaked forensics photo. The death photo was published in Thai Rath, a Thailand tabloid newspaper.
According to Mark Geragos, attorney for David’s brother Keith Carradine, “The family is outraged about the release of these photos.”
Geragos says he will legally go after any publication that runs the photo in the United States.
There have been conflicting reports surrounding the nature of Carradine’s death, which was first thought to be a suicide. Although sources close to Carradine say he had a history of engaging in auto-erotic asphyxiation, there has been speculation that the actor may have been murdered.
It was reported that the actor had his hands tied behind his back, but the photo is said to show his hands tied in front of him. There were also reportedly two ropes tied together – one around his genitals, and another around his neck.
