David Carradine Funeral Held In LA, Many Stars In Attendance
A funeral has been held for actor David Carradine who died of accidental asphyxiation and was found hung in the closet of his hotel room in Bangkok on June 3. The report issued by US forensic experts on June 11 has ruled out suicide as the cause of Carrandine's death despite rumours that the actor took his own life that surfaced right after his death.
Today, Carradine's funeral was attended by hundreds of mourners, including Hollywood stars, such as Jane Seymour, Tom Selleck, Daryl Hannah and Lucy Liu. The service was private with only family and invited guests in attendance.
Family members were joined by former co-stars and other Hollywood figures in the congregation of about 400.
Actors Jane Seymour, Tom Selleck, Daryl Hannah and Lucy Liu were among them.
Thai authorities are still investigating Carradine's death at the age of 72. A private pathologist ruled out suicide as a cause.
At the funeral, his family were not visible to the media and his burial was private.
Security guards made sure only invited guests entered the service.
The order of service showed a photo of a smiling Carradine on the front, and a sketch of him on the back above the lyrics to Midnight Rider by the Allman Brothers Band.
Other song selections included The Beatles' Let It Be and Beethoven's Requiem for a Fallen Hero, Associated Press reported.
