Rodney King, whose vicious beating by the cops ignited the L.A. Riots back in ‘92, was found dead in the bottom of his pool back in June.
The details were kind of sketchy. His fiancée said that he went to bed around 2 a.m. but then she was woken up by his screams hours later. She ran out in the backyard to find him drowning (drowned?) in the pool. Friends of Rodney were suspicious over her involvement.
Well the autopsy report has been released and he was on some serious drugs when he died. They found alcohol, marijuana, cocaine and PCP in his system.
PCP? I didn’t even know that people actually did that drug. I’ve never heard of it except for in drug prevention videos where they do PCP and jump out of a window and after the funeral everyone says ‘Don’t Do Drugs’.
And it’s interesting that he was on PCP because that’s what the cops thought he was on when they beat him but it didn’t show up in his drug testing.
Anyway, the cause of death is still considered ‘accidental drowning’ but the coroner did say that Rodney was ‘in a state of drug and alcohol induced delirium’ when he died. It’s still unknown if he fell or jumped in the pool.
They also said that the drug combo partnered up with his heart problems likely made him ‘incapacitated’ and assisted in the drowning.
So sad. Don’t do drugs.
