The details behind David Carradine’s mysterious death in Thailand are still unknown, but we can now report with certainty:
The actor did not kill himself.
In a statement issued today, brothers Keith and Robert Carradine announced that Dr. Michael Baden, an expert in forensics hired to perform a second autopsy on the actor, determined that their sibling did not commit suicide.
“The autopsy findings and the evidence thus far available demonstrate that Mr. Carradine’s death was not the result of suicide,” Baden said.
“First of all, we would like to thank everyone for their heartfelt expressions of love and sympathy for what we are going through,” said Keith Carradine, as his sibling added:
“Until we have all of the pending results of the investigation we respectfully ask that we be allowed to lay our beloved brother, husband and father, grandfather and great-grandfather to rest in peace and with dignity.”
