Hundreds Gather for Funeral of David Carradine

Hundreds of mourners gathered in Los Angeles Saturday evening for David Carradine’s funeral. His casket was carried to Forest Lawn Cemetery in a white hearse, accompanied by a Hell's Angels escort.

More than 400 people, including several actors, arrived at a cemetery to honor the life of the "Kill Bill" star.

The 72-year-old actor's body was found hanging in a Bangkok hotel room on June 4. Thai authorities continue to investigate his death. A statement released Thursday by a private pathologist said suicide had been ruled out as a cause of death.

The services and the burial were private. Among those seen entering the memorial service were the actor's brother, Keith Carradine, actor Tom Selleck and "Kill Bill" co-star Lucy Liu.

Carradine's brother Bruce explained to PEOPLE that the day was a happy one: "There weren't a lot of tears, but there was a lot of laughter."
