    Suicide is very selfish and cowardly . The person can,t be thinking about anyone but himself .

    You guys know that it may not be a "suicide" at all....

    Could be that Grasshopper was involved in the S&M art of suffocation while doing the wild thing????

    While on the state police, I investigated a "Accidental Death" which appeared as a suicide at first glance....just a thought!!

    Just read about his death that is reported to be suicide. So sorry to see one who has entertained so many of us for so long go out that way. He must have been very troubled to do that to himself. Dan

    Curt, You could be right, Bangkok is said to be a wild town. No telling who he was with. He was there making a movie. He was supposedly sobered up and standing tall after his success with the Kill Bill movies. Why go to Bangkok and strangle yourself when a more pleasant means could have been used at home?

    Jerry...very correct.

    The obit in my particular case indicated suicide with no other explanation. We shielded the family as best we could.

    Either way, it's still a shame.

    He was suffocating himself while jaggin off by himself or with some "assistance".

    To embarrassing to the family to print that, so he "killed himself".

    My bet anyway.

    No way he flew to Bangkok then commit suicide.

    Hell.... Karate men always Dim Mak themselves or they cut their guts out then have their best friend chop their head off. No Karate man hangs himself.

    Way too disciplined to lock himself in a room and do the rafter jig.

    I always wondered why they chose him rather than Bruce Lee for the Kung Fu series. In fact I think Bruce pitched the whole Kung Fu story.

    Kwai Chang Caine, as I remember him, always seemed like a cool/wild/strange dude and would not surprise me in the least if he was into kinky/crazy stuff with himself or his women.

    Well, his Mother always said he'd either go blind or kill himself.

    I saw him being interviewed on a late night talk show about 10 years ago. I'm not sure if he was stoned or what but he was definitely a very weird dude.

    It was feared that there was still too much prejudice in America at the time for an Oriental to be the lead role in a weekly TV series.

    I always enjoyed his shows.
