David Carradine - Sadly The Five Finger Death Punch got him

Really sad news. Bangkok's KABC network has broken the news that kung fu icon David Carradine (Kill Bill) was found dead in a hotel room in Bangkok this morning.

Carradine was working on a new film in Thailand called Stretch. Initial reports suggested suicide by hanging but Carradine's manager, Chuck Binder confirmed to Bangkok's WABC network that he believed Carradine had died of natural causes.

However, Thai police told the BBC that hed was found by a hotel maid sitting in a wardrobe with a rope around his neck and body on Thursday morning.

"His death is shocking and sad. He was full of life, always wanting to work ... a great person," Chuck Binder said.

Carradine, who became famous in the 1970s when he starred as Kwai Chang Caine in the television series "Kung Fu," was 72.

His career included more than 100 feature films, two dozen television movies and theater work. Carradine was last seen in this year's release, Crank 2: High Voltage, where he played Poon Dong.

He was married five times and divorced four, is survived by his widow, Annie Bierman and four children.

There currently seem to be a few conflicting stories as to what exactly happened. I'd personally have loved it if he passed away while fighting off numerous ninjas while saving the hotel maid.

Whatever way you look at it another icon has passed away. What are your memories of the Kung Fu star?
