Private Pathologist: Findings Indicate Carradine Died Of Asphyxia

The private pathologist who examined David Carradine's body says Thai authorities have determined the actor died of asphyxia and so far, he agrees.

Dr. Michael Baden of New York says his examination of the "Kung Fu" star's body and the details he's receive from Bangkok are consistent with an asphyxiation death. He conducted a second autopsy on Carradine's body at the family's request.

Carradine was found dead in a hotel in the Thai capitol on June 4.

Baden also says he can't yet say whether Carradine died accidentally or was killed. He says he's waiting for some key details from Thai authorities -- including toxicology reports and analysis of items found in the actor's hotel room -- before he completes his findings.
