rodney king death

rodney king death, As we only just reported, Rodney King was found dead by fiancee Cynthia Kelley in his California home Sunday morning.
Now, Cynithia is reportedly claiming Rodney had been drinking heavily and smoking marijuana Saturday, before going to bed aroundRodney King, an integral force behind the LA Riots who was infamously beaten by police back in 1991, was found dead Sunday morning in his home in Rialto, CA.
Supposedly, Rodney's fiancee discovered his body at the bottom of the pool.
The cause of death is currently unknown.

Our hearts go out to Rodney's loved ones during this extremely difficult time.Details began to emerge Sunday about the death of Rodney King, a key figure in the 1992 Los Angeles riots.

As we reported earlier, King was 47 and died of an apparent drowning at his Rialto, California home.
Here’s an update from the LA Times:
King’s fiancĂ©e called 911 about 5:25 a.m. and said she found King at the bottom of his pool, Sgt. Paul Stella said.
A short time earlier, Cynthia Kelley had talked to King, who was outside, through a sliding-glass door, said Rialto Police Capt. Randy DeAnda. She then heard a splash and ran out, DeAnda said. She saw King at the bottom of the pool at the deep end, he said.
Kelley is “not a great swimmer,” DeAnda said, explaining why she did not jump in. Police arrived moments later and an officer jumped in the pool and pulled King’s body onto the deck.
“There were no signs of life,” DeAnda said.
Next-door neighbor Sandra Gardea, 31, said she heard commotion in King’s backyard early Sunday morning. Gardea said about 3 or 3:30 a.m. she heard someone sobbing.
“It just sounded like someone was really sad,” she said. “There was a lot of moaning and crying. Another person was trying to console that person.”
King became a symbol for police brutality and the troubled relations between the LAPD and minority residents. He was eventually awarded a $3.8-million settlement, but the money and fame brought him little solace. He had repeated run-ins with the law and as of April said he was broke.
“I sometimes feel like I’m caught in a vise. Some people feel like I’m some kind of hero,” he told The Times earlier this year. “Others hate me. They say I deserved it. Other people, I can hear them mocking me for when I called for an end to the destruction, like I’m a fool for believing in peace.”
