POLITICS-US: Report Ties Dubious Iran Nuclear Docs to Israel

David Carradine, the prolific actor and self-styled "tough old man" best known for his title role in the Kill Bill films, has been found dead in a Bangkok hotel room, after apparently hanging himself from the door of a wardrobe.

He was 72.

Police reports said that Carradine's body was discovered by a maid cleaning his suite at the 5-star Park Nai Lert Hotel at around 10am yesterday. He'd arrived in the Thai capital on Tuesday to begin work on a new movie called Stretch.

A local newspaper, The Nation, said that Carradine was half naked, and had a curtain cord wrapped around his neck and genitals.

Though some early news bulletins attributed his death to suicide, Carradine's personal manager Chuck Binder said he believed it was a tragic accident, telling reporters that the actor had no history of depression and was looking forward to making the film.

It is legally permissible for police to zap a suspect with a Taser to obtain a DNA sample, as long as it’s not done “maliciously, or to an excessive extent, or with resulting injury,” a county judge has ruled in the first case of its kind in New York State, and possibly the nation.

Smith was handcuffed and sitting on the floor of Niagara Falls Police Headquarters when he was zapped with the 50,000- volt electronic stun gun after he insisted he would not give a DNA sample.

He already had given a sample, a swab of the inside of his cheek, without protest the previous month. But police sent it to the wrong lab, where it was opened and spoiled.
