The mystery surrounding David Carradine’s passing continues to surprise as details surrounding his death are revealed. But just when you thought things couldn’t get any more bizarre, or disturbing, the Thai press does the unthinkable and publishs a grainy photo showing the dead body of David Carradine how he was found in his hotel room. People have been sending me this photo to post since Saturday afternoon, but I will NOT be publishing this awful and disturbing picture. Have they no respect for the dead?
Family members of David Carradine are “profoundly disturbed” by the publication of a forensics photo that allegedly shows the late actor at the scene of his death. A grainy photo published Saturday on the cover of the tabloid Thai Rath shows a naked body suspended from a clothes bar in a hotel closet, with hands apparently bound together above the head and feet on the floor. The paper did not indicate the source of the image, but Thai police believe it’s a picture of Carradine’s body taken by a forensics team that examined the Bangkok, Thailand hotel room where his body was discovered last week. The shocking photo is disturbing and even reveals tattoos on the lower half of his nude body.
Oviously, his family is outraged by the disgusting display of so-called journalism and is threatening legal action against any media outlet that publishes the photo. Not surprisingly, there doesn’t appear to be much concern about possible litigation, or the lack of humanity, since internet sites have been posting the slightly blurry photo for all to see. A spokesperson for Carradine’s family released a statement saying that the family was “profoundly disturbed by the release in Thailand of photographs taken at the scene of David Carradine’s death.” The statement adds: “The family wants it understood that, per (family) attorney Mark Geragos, any persons, publications or media outlets will be fully prosecuted for invasion of privacy and causing severe emotional distress if the photos are published.” Geragos has also requested that the FBI investigate David’s mysterious death and the family is seeking an independent autopsy by famed forensic pathologist to determine whether another person could have been involved.
