(Newser) – A secret kung fu sect may have killed actor David Carradine for uncovering its secrets, his family's lawyer says. "If there was some foul play, that that may be the first area where" authorities "should look," Hollywood lawyer Mark Geragos said on Larry King Live. He added that the Carradine clan refuses to believe the actor died in a sex stunt gone wrong, the New York Post reports.

Geragos' suggestion echoes an earlier conspiracy theory that Triads, or Chinese mafia, killed martial arts actor Bruce Lee in 1973. Ironically, Lee had lost out to Carradine for the lead in the 1970s TV series Kung Fu. If Carradine "was involved in secret societies, it was a secret that even I didn't know about," says ex-wife Marina Anderson. "But he did have some big secrets."
