    Practitioners of the practice that killed David Carradine often tie themselves up in one fashion or another. (There are photos available on the web -- you probably do not want to see them, since they are almost always taken after death.)

    It all sounds like a case of AE strangulation to me, at least on the surface.
    Do you have a link to the article with this info?

    And if they're really after attention, how do they figure Americans will make the link between the murder and their movement? I just doesn't make any sense.

    The guy probably stumbled upon some drug producers who didn't want him exposing or compromising their operation. Rabid anti-government sentiment in certain parts of Appalachia has predated the existence of any tea-parties or conservative marches on Washington. Occam’s razor points to this.
    Maybe a meth lab. The meth industry is most likely a big problem in that area.

    By your command!

    The first article makes it sound like his clothes were found at the scene in a truck that may have been his own too.

    I don't see anything that resembles AEA from those reports, personally.

    But why would he have "fed" written on his chest? And who tied him up? And most importantly why would he be doing this in the middle of a forest?
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    The obvious conclusion is that a racist listener of Rush Limbaugh had a meth lab in the forest, right next to his weapons cache. He was convinced that this census worker was gathering data and evidence to uncover Rush Limbaughs racist plot.

    Duh...

    "FED" could have been someone's initials, or it could have meaning only to the deceased. As for him being tied up, we don't know how restrictive the bindings were. In other words, whether he might have done it himself. There are people who get great pleas use (don't ask me -- I don't get it, ) from being bound.

    Often they find ways to at least simulate being tied up if they don't have a partner to help.

    Look, I need to stress that I'm no expert, just medical provider (EMT) that over the years, has come across odd articles in medical literature. I'm going to dark places with Google right now to try and illustrate my guess about this case without getting banned for my trouble. (This is not a "Family Friendly" topic, obviously.)

    But as to him being bound, look at this, (it's fairly safe.) Wapedia - Wiki: Self-bondage.

    The description of they guy hanger, but touching the ground, naked but wearing socks, in a secluded place exactly matches cases I've read about.

    As for why would he be doing this in a secluded place, I would imagine it would be because he enjoyed it that way? I remember one of the articles I saw was of a man who'd done this in a park, and another found just like this, hanging naked in the woods.

    I brought this up mostly to illustrate that people who jumped to conclusions of a political murder might be embarrassed.

    How obvious can they get that they want this story to just go away.
    It took the media two weeks to break the story and there have been near zero updates on the case.

    This is weak from the standpoint of the media.

    Well, I imagine that if my guess is correct, there are very strong concerns about causing torment to his family on the one hand, and having to explain that sort of practice to the public on the other.

    Also why was his badge taped to him?
