DAVID CARRADINE was found dead in a Bangkok hotel room, sitting in a wardrobe with a rope around his neck and genitals (The BBC has since removed the express reference to genitals, but it was there).  But I would guess that's the detail that has authorities leaning towards an accidental suicide scenario.  (UPDATE: Carradine's manager claims the actor was found with his hands tied behind his back.) Best known for his role as Kwai Chang Caine in the 1970s TV series Kung Fu, his career spanned over 100 movies with directors such as Martin Scorsese, Ingmar Bergman, and Quentin Tarantino in the Kill Bill fims, which included the wonderful "Superman Speech."
