Famed forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden spoke exclusively to RadarOnline.com about his involvement with the investigation into David Carradine’s death.
“I was contacted by Mark Geragos and asked to help,” Baden said.
Geragos is representing David’s brother Keith Carradine in his family’s search for answers into 72-year-old actor’s sudden death.
Carradine died in Bangkok where he had just started a new film, and an autopsy has already been performed by Thai authorities.
Shocking photographs leaked from the scene show that Carradine was seated in a closet with rope tied around his neck, hands and genitals.
Auto-erotic asphyxiation gone terribly wrong has been suggested by many but the family remains unconvinced, and wants no stone unturned – including the possibility of foul play -- in determining the cause of death.
Baden, the chief forensic pathologist for the New York State Police, has been involved in the investigations into countless celebrity deaths including Nicole Brown Simpson and Anna Nicole Smith.
“The body has been flown back to Los Angeles, “Baden said.
“I’ll soon be leaving New York for L.A. to conduct the forensic examination.”
