When word went around Flavorpill yesterday that cult icon David Carradine had been found hanging from a closet in his hotel room, we were all surprised. Then rumors started circulating that it was possibly an accident, not suicide, and related to some his sexually-deviant behavior. Last night Carradine’s manager was on Larry King and denied the suicide rumors, and this morning his co-star Michael Madsen penned a piece for the New York Post that said pretty much the same thing.
Meanwhile the Washington Post confirmed that Thai police were still investigating the death; the official word from Bangkok is that “he most likely died of asphyxiation, possibly when an autoerotic sex game went wrong.”
Ahem. Which brings us to the buzz on Twitter, where there’s a #whokilledbill hash tag making the rounds, “David Carradine” is a trending topic, and most of the tweets about this tragedy leave something to be desired.
