Details are emerging that David Carradine, the star of “Kung Fu” and recently Tarantino’s “Kill Bill,” was found dead in Bangkok today. It is rumored that Carradine, age 72, may have committed suicide.

A spokesman for the U.S. Embassy, Michael Turner, confirmed the death of the 72-year-old actor. He says Carradine died either late Wednesday or early Thursday, but he could not provide further details out of consideration for his family.

The Web site of the newspaper The Nation cited unidentified police sources as saying Carradine was found Thursday hanged in his luxury hotel room and is believed to have committed suicide.

More details to come as available. Very sad news.
