There will not be any official word on the cause of David Carradine’s death until at least the end of the month.

“The autopsy report is at least three weeks away,” Bangkok’s Lt. Gen. Worapong Chewprecha, who is heading the investigation, told exclusively.

Controversy has surrounded the sudden death of the 72-year-old actor who was in Bangkok making a film at the time of his death, and that’s led famed attorney Mark Geragos to suggest that the FBI be brought in.

Speaking on behalf of David’s brother Keith Carradine, Geragos told Larry King late last night the family wants “an investigation."

“I would think that the people in Bangkok would want to support an investigation and allow the FBI to go over there and assist in the investigation so we can get the answers to the questions,” Geragos said.

Carradine was found dead Thursday morning with a rope around his neck and genitals, leading some to believe he died while performing auto-erotic asphyxiation.

Cops initially suspected suicide, which his family discounts.

Carradine’s remains are being flown back to Los Angeles today.

Funeral services have not yet been announced.
