Actor David Carradine appears to be wearing a wig and fishnets in photos taken of his body  in his Bagkok hotel room, deepening the mystery of his death, reports ABC News. Red lingerie lies on the bed. Cross dressing is often an element of autoerotic asphyxiation, which Thai officials have determined killed Carradine. But others say the items may be evidence that someone else was in Carradine's room. He was found hanging in his closet with cords around his neck, hands and genitals.

"How do you get a rope around your neck and around your genitals by yourself?" asked Carradine's manager. "My take is there was definitely foul play. There's a lot of weird stuff that happens in Bangkok. This isn't LA or New York." But one of Carradine's ex-wives said the actor "liked to be tied up, and could tie himself up. He spent days planning a different feature. He would go to a hardware store and buy the stuff." (More David Carradine stories.)
