I am really disturbed by the death of David Carradine. He looked amazing for his age -- 72 years young -- and I loved him in the Kill Bill films.
The Kung Fu star was working on a film in Thailand and was found dead in his closet.
Bangkok police have now ruled his death suspicious, according to People, because his hands, neck, and genitals were bound with rope tied to the closet bar. He was found seated and naked.
Carradine's manager, Tiffany Smith, refuses to believe it was suicide.
The actor's niece, actress Martha Plimpton, shared this statement: "My Uncle David was a brilliantly talented, fiercely intelligent and generous man. He was the nexus of our family in so many ways, and drew us together over the years and kept us connected. I adored him as a child, and as an adult I admired and respected him. We will all miss him terribly."
He has two daughters and a son. My heart goes out to his family.
