David Carradine's Last Pictures?

David Carradine's Last Pictures?

These may be the very latest pictures of Kung Fu star David Carradine, who was seen running errands barefoot on Thursday (May 21) in Tarzana, Calif.

The 72-year-old was seen buying newspapers at All-American Newsstand, driving his maroon Jaguar to Office Depot to pick up supplies and purchasing flowers from a local market.

Carradine wrestled with suicidal thoughts long before his death in a Bangkok hotel. A 2004 interview was dug up by The Telegraph Newspaper, where Carradine admits he considered shooting himself.

Carradine said, “Look, there was a period in my life when I had a single action Colt 45, loaded, in my desk drawer. And every night I’d take it out and think about blowing my head off, and then decide not to and go on with my life. Put it back in the drawer and open up the laptop and continue writing my autobiography or whatever. But it was just to see.”

UPDATE: Reuters is reporting that Carradine was found dead, naked and hanging from a rope in the closet of his hotel room in Bangkok on Thursday morning.

BANGKOK – By Darren Schuettler

U.S. actor David Carradine was found dead, naked and hanging from a rope in the closet of his luxury Bangkok hotel room on Thursday, Thai police said.

Police said they were alerted to the death of the actor — who starred as the wandering monk in the long-running Kung Fu U.S. television series — on Thursday morning.

“He was found hanging by a rope in the room’s closet,” Lieutenant Colonel Pirom Jantrapirom of the Lumpini police station in Bangkok told Reuters.

He said Carradine’s body was naked when it was found and there were no signs of any other people in the room. The body has been transferred to a hospital for an autopsy.

U.S. embassy official Michael Turner earlier confirmed Carradine’s death and told Reuters that the body had been found at Bangkok’s Nailert Hotel.

“I can confirm that David Carradine passed away in Bangkok. We extend our condolences to his family,” Turner said.

Carradine had more recently starred in Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill films as Bill.

Oh no. Sad , sad news.
RIP mr. Carradine.

I hate how people are suddenly going to give him attention now he’s dead. The same with Heath Ledger! RIP.

Rest in Peace.

he looks very sad (beyond sad) in that pic.

What a pity…
I was fond of the Kung Fu series when I was young.
RIP Mr Carradine

poor guy.

keep his family/friends in your thoughts.

great actor. You’ll be missed..

crap. This is a dramatic way to go out. Who does he think he is…Heath Ledger?

a total fan @ 06/04/2009 at 2:08 pm

RIP-I loved every film he made. Sad we may not be able to see his last work.

Not an expert or anything, but people who have suicidal thoughts on their mind.Hardly ever look depressed.They smile in your face act all happy go lucky and the next time you blink with your eye they are gone.

I always respected this actor.Talented, sarcasm, martial arts.
He will be missed.RIP!!!


but Why Thailand?

my country…..

It is sad depression is a horrible thing. RIP

What a terrible tragedy! My parents just lost two close friends to suicide, so I can relate. Nothing more selfish and tragic than taking your own life IMO.

David Carradine does have a deranged look in his eyes, as evidenced by these photos. He also appears very morose, which often times is a percursor to these types of events.

suicide is indeed selfish but when someone is deeply depressed they think its the onky way out. I wonder what was wrong with corradine and why no one helped him when he already said he wanted to kill himself few yrs ago.

wow that’s so sad!! May god bless his soul
