"Unfortunate coincidence" hall-of-famer

Kill Bill and Kung Fu star David Carradine has been found dead in a Bangkok hotel room.

Thai police told the BBC the 72-year-old was found by a hotel maid sitting in a wardrobe with a rope around his neck and genitals on Thursday morning.

The star was in Thailand filming his latest film, “Stretch”.   [BBC]

EDIT: The BBC swiftly changed the word “genitals” there to the word “body”. I preserve the original partly because the change rather takes the wind out of the punchline, and partly to record the moment where, depending on the story that finally emerges, either the BBC grew suddenly coy or it was wildly misinformed by the police or even its own Thai correspondent.

Ooh, have they changed it from "genitals" to "body" since you posted?

I should add that I'm quite sad... he was a really entertaining actor. I might see if I can get Q: The Winged Serpent on tonight.

Damn, they must have done. If I'd known that was going to happen I would have taken a screenshot.
