David Carradine's Widow Files Wrongful Death Suit Against Film Company

It was exactly a year ago today when international film star David Carradine was found dead in his Bangkok hotel room, victim of a dangerous sex game known as auto-erotic asphyxia. At the time, the actor was in Thailand working on a film entitled "Stretch."

Yesterday, his widow filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the French production company handling "Stretch." In the suit, Anne Carradine accuses the production company, MK2, of negligence in leaving the actor alone in his room. If he had not been left alone that night, she states, he would still be alive.

The lawsuit further claims that Carradine perished while performing duties for MK2 and that the production company failed to follow "industry standards" and give the actor "sufficient assistance."

On the night he died, Carradine was scheduled to have dinner with the director of "Stretch." When an assistant could not reach Carradine to arrange transportation, they left him behind at the hotel. 60 minutes later, Carradine called the assistant, but was told that it was too late to meet for dinner and that the actor would have to accommodate himself.

Some close to Carradine have acknowledged that he sometimes engaged in dangerous and bizarre sex practices, though MK2 has yet to comment on the lawsuit.

Carradine was most famous for his role in the 1970's television series "Kung Fu." He experienced resurgence in 2003 after his role as the title character in Quentin Tarantino's "Kill Bill" films.
