51. I said it carelessly, and you misunderstood.
When I mentioned "bigger bang" regarding David Carradine, I meant that he was seeking the alleged bigger and better orgasm. His death was obviously auto-erotic asphyxiation gone wrong. We agree that it was accidental.

I worked with adolescent boys who got involved with a-e-a, as it was known in those days, and learned a lot about it. That's why this Sparkman case was fairly easy to identify. The ritual is almost always the same.

Shame or embarrassment, the fact is that his family, which clearly wanted so desperately to prove that his death had occurred in any other way except a-e-a, went completely silent after the final autopsy, when the evidence was incontrovertible that it was, in fact, a case of a-e-a that had gone wrong. This happens.

I don't know, though, that Carradine had, as you say, "done (it) many times before." Was that a fact that was known by others? I missed that.

In the end, as I've said before, dead is dead. Carradine wanted a great big orgasm - or did he? Sparkman wanted to die - or did he? All we know for sure is that these men are both dead under very similar circumstances. Was Carradine suicidal? I have no idea. Was Sparkman suicidal? Well, he discussed it with a friend who has not yet been identified.

Intent is significant, yes, but they both used the exact same ritual, so your observation that they "are simply not the same in any way, shape, or form" is incorrect. Ask the rope and the duct tape. The rituals are almost always identical, and, as with the adolescent boys I worked with, they were always naked when found. For the longest time, no one could figure that out, until the auto-erotic asphyxiation matter was introduced, and then it all made sense.

I think there will be more information about the Sparkman matter as time goes by.
