After Carradine’s half-brother, Keith Carradine
met Friday with FBI officials in Los Angeles,
The FBI has offered its assistance to Thai
authorities investigating Thursday’s death
of actor David Carradine after meeting with
Carradine’s half brother Keith Carradine,
agency officials tell PEOPLE MAGAZINE
The FBI has no jurisdiction in other countries,
but occasionally offers assistance investigating
the deaths of Americans when foul play is suspected
or when the family requests such intervention.
Mark Geragos,Keith Carradine’s attorney tells
PEOPLE that Keith and other family members are
finding the grieving process even more difficult
because they keep getting conflicting details
regarding the condition of Carradine’s body when it
Thai police had confirmed that a maid found Carradine,
72, nude in the closet of his luxury suite with a rope
tied around his neck and one around his genitals.
“It is unclear whether he committed suicide or not,
or he died of suffocation or heart failure,” said police
Lt. Gen. Worapong Chewprecha, the Associated Pres reported.
An autopsy was ordered because of the “unusual circumstances”
surrounding the death, said Dr. Nanthana Sirisap, director
of Chulalongkorn Hospital’s Autopsy Center.
For those who knew Carradine well, Geragos says the
possibility that Carradine’s death was a suicide seems
unlikely – he had a lust for life, a busy career and even
a new sports car.
An autopsy has already been conducted on David Carradine
in Bangkok, but a second might be done in the United States
