Rodney King, who was at the center of the infamous LA riots more than two decades ago, was found dead at his house yesterday. He was only 47 years old. According to his fiancée Cynthia Kelley, he had been smoking weed and drinking all day. She went to bed but then was woken around 5 a.m. when Rodney was banging on the window of their home. She looked outside and saw that he was naked. She asked him, “What’s wrong, Rodney?” and went to go grab her phone when she heard a big splash. She ran outside and discovered him in the bottom of the pool and called police. The paramedics removed him from the pool and attempted to revive him but it was too late. He was pronounced dead at 6:11 a.m.
But friends aren’t really buying Cynthia’s story. They said that she keeps on changing her story and voiced their concerns to a detective.
