Did Secret Society Kill David Carradine?

David Carradine

June 9th, 2009 by admin

(MYFOX NATIONAL) – The New York Post reported Sunday that the attorney for David Carradine’s family, Mark Geragos, suggested that the actor may have been killed as he tried to uncover groups working in the martial-arts underworld.

Geragos said the actor’s family refuses to believe he died in a sadomasochistic sex stunt gone wrong. The lawyer appeared on Larry King Live Friday night to discuss the death.

On the show , responding to a statement about Carradine being “very interested in investigating and disclosing secret societies,” Geragos answered “absolutely … “what that means is [he is] connected to to martial arts and his interest in martial arts. And so there is a suspicion that if there was some foul play, that that may be the first area where they should look.”

Carradine’s naked body was discovered last Thursday morning in his luxury suite at Bangkok’s Swissotel Nai Lert Park Hotel. Police initially suspected his death was a suicide, but have since said it may have been accidental suffocation or heart failure after revealing he was found with a rope tied around his wrist, neck and genitals.

On Saturday morning, a Bangkok tabloid published a blurry photo of Carradine’s body at the crime scene. TMZ reported on Sunday that a “new sharper image … reveals what appears to be fishnet stockings covering the body. You can also see red women’s lingerie on the bed. And, it appears, Carradine may have been wearing a dark wig.”

Similar conspiracy theories swirled around the death of another Kung Fu icon thirty five years ago. Bruce Lee died at the age of 32 of brain swelling triggered by a reaction to medication. Suggestions that Lee was killed by a Chinese secret society has been associated with his death since 1973.

Director Quentin Tarantino, noted that the actor would appreciate the mystery around his death . Also appearing on Larry King Live Friday he said, “If the last chapter of his autobiography was ‘The Mysterious Demise of David Carradine’, that would be perfect.”

David Carradine death sparks accusations of secret society murder

David Carradine

By Bart Jackson June 8, 2009

The death of Kung Fu star David Carradine has spurred a battle over conspiracy theories among his family, friends and even an ex-wife.

Celebrity lawyer Mark Geragos warns that secretive martial arts sects may have been behind the death, marking it as a murder.

“David was very interested in investigating and disclosing secret societies – absolutely,” Geragos said on CNN’s Larry King show. “What that means is connected to his interest in martial arts. And so there is a suspicion that if there was some foul play, that may be the first area they should look.”

The 72-year-old star of Kill Bill was found naked Thursday with a rope tied to his neck, wrists and genitals, prompting Thai police to say he died when some kinky masturbatory act went awry.

The fourth of Carradine’s five wives, Marina Anderson, thinks the cops are probably right, saying her former husband was often involved in “potentially deadly” kinky sexual encounters. “If he was involved in secret societies, it was a secret even I didn’t know about.”

Carradine’s manager, however, says the evidence points to murder. Photos of the star showed his hands were tied behind his back, says Chick Binder. He also notes there was a footprint on the bed that didn’t match the star’s print.

Members of Carradine’s family, already furious that a Bangkok newspaper printed a photo of the actor’s body hanging in his hotel room, have reported asked the FBI to investigate the death.

Conspiracy theorists have had another martial arts star in their sights for a quarter century. Many think that actor Bruce Lee was targeted by Chinese triads. Lee died in 1973.

David Carradine: Murder Or Masturbation?

David Carradine

Masturbation, quite clearly. But that hasn’t stopped his family from putting forward the theory that he was killed. By a Kung Fu gang.

Think of the most embarrassing moment of your life. Think of it, relive it, be there right now.

Bad, huh? Now fast forward a bit and imagine your 72-year old body being found in a Bangkok hotel room closet, naked but for a shoelace tied around your shrivelled old winky.

Puts that bachelor’s party into perspective, doesn’t it?

So, no wonder that David Carradine’s family are going with the “he was murdered” line. To be honest, if it was us we’d hope that our relatives had the decency to claim we had “drowned in a bathtub filled with tramp’s piss while cleaning the underside of Susan Boyle’s breasts with their tongue and listening to Coldplay albums” rather than “okay, okay, they choked on the bit of string they’d been using to heighten their masturbatory experience in an Asian hotel wardrobe“.

But the family haven’t stopped at simply proposing an explanation which doesn’t involve autoerotic asphixiation. They’ve put some thought into this. Sadly, that thought was “Hmm, David liked martial arts. He starred in a TV series and a Quentin Tarantino film about them. Maybe we could say he was practising an ancient Shaolin meditation technique? No, that’s ridiculous. Aha: Kung Fu assassination squads!”

Dear Sydney Morning Herald, what could possibly be going on here?

“David Carradine was murdered by a secret kung fu sect, his family has claimed. Relatives of the Kill Bill star believe he was “assassinated” because he was trying to expose an underworld martial arts group. Speaking on the Larry King Live US talk show, attorney Mark Geragos said: ‘David was very interested in investigating and disclosing secret societies – absolutely.’

We’re no experts, but we just can’t buy this story. For a start, everyone knows ninjas kill people using knives, throwing-stars and slow-motion flying kicks. And for a finish, Carradine’s ex-wife filed for divorce partly on the grounds of his demands for:

“…deviant sexual behaviour which was potentially deadly”

Nice try. But let us at least hope that the world remembers David Carradine as the charming young star of stylish, action-packed blockbuster films.

And definitely not as a pensioner who died while tugging away at himself.
