David Carradine dead...suicide?

According to ABC News
David Carradine, star of the 1970s drama "Kung Fu," was found dead in a Bangkok, Thailand, hotel room from an apparent suicide by hanging, according to police and local media. He was 72.

...Citing unnamed police officials, the Nation newspaper reported Carradine was found dead this morning by a chamber maid at the Park Nai Lert Hotel, where he was staying while shooting his latest film, "Stretch."

Carradine was reportedly found naked in the room's closet hanging from a rope, possibly from the curtains, according to the Nation and police.

"He was found hanging by a rope in the room's closet," Lt. Colonel Pirom Jantrapirom of the Lumpini police station in Bangkok told Reuters.

Now why would a guy hang himself in the middle of filming? Did Carradine know the movie would be that bad?

For my money the star of Kung Fu and Kill Bill vols 1&2 when the way of Vaughn Bode and INXS frontman Michael Hutchence.
