A grainy photo published on the Saturday cover of the tabloid
Speculation about the death of Carradine, 72, who starred in the 1970s-era U.S. television show "Kung Fu" and the more recent "Kill Bill" movies, has deepened since his body was discovered on Thursday by a maid in the Bangkok hotel suite where he was staying while filming the movie "Stretch."
Thai Rathis a Thai language daily newspaper published in Bangkok and distributed nationwide.Thai Rath is the oldest and best-selling newspaper in Thailand, claiming a circulation in excess of 1 million copies daily. Thai Rath is the publisher, who was published David Carradine hanging Photo. The family of David Carradine is disturbed by this Photo and may be some actions can be taken by them.
According to The Insider, 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 and are threatening legal action against any media outlets that reprint any of the images.
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 Associated Press reports. The face is blacked out and other areas are obscured.
While the paper does not indicate the source of the image, Thai police say they believe it is 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.
David’s actor brother Keith Carradine said in a statement 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 also investigate David’s mysterious death and the on Friday, in hopes that the family is seeking an independent autopsy by famed forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden to determine whether another person could have been involved. Results of an autopsy performed Friday in Bangkok were not expected for at least three weeks.
Geragos says Carradine’s body is being brought back to the U.S. this weekend for a second autopsy, which he believes could help shed light on whether foul play was involved in the “Kung Fu” star’s death.
