The latest theory floating around in the mysterious death of actor David Carradine? That he was killed by Thailand’s lady boys! Known as “kathoeys,” MTF folks there constitute a third gender — and they’re being roped in to Carradine’s bizarre hotel death where he was found bound and hanging in a closet. Was Mr. Carradine taking up with some trans folks in the sexual escapades that led to his death?
So goes one string of gossip: “But foul play has not been ruled out and Carradine’s friend David Winters, who produced three of the actor’s less-known martial arts movies, insists he was the victim of Bangkok’s Lady Boys – and local police are trying to cover up the truth. He tells America’s Globe, ‘David Carradine was murdered… I strongly believe Lady Boys are responsible. Lady Boys operate in pairs. David would not have stood a chance. They can be very brutal.’”
What? A sex tourist who got more than he bargained for? Well doesn’t that come off as a sound argument! We may never know who’s responsible for Carradine’s death, but we also hear kathoeys are responsible for the global credit crisis and the Iranian election scandal.
