9. The death of David Carradine

David Carradine of "Kung Fu" fame and more recently "Kill Bill," died at age 72. That in and of itself wasn't the issue -- it was how he died. The actor was found in his hotel room in Thailand with his hands bound. That sparked talk about his suicide and sexual proclivities. But it all ultimately led to the ruling that his death was one of asphyxiation, not suicide.
