Rodney King, who made public headlines in 1991 after being a victim of police brutality which later led to the infamous LA riots, was found dead at 47 on Sunday by his fiancée Cynthia Kelly. However two close friends to King believe the story his fiancée is telling the police about his death is not true.
It was first reported that Kelley told police that he was banging on the window of their home a little after 5 a.m. on Sunday (June 18), then she heard him fall in the pool. Sources close to King voiced to TMZ that they heard Kelley tell the story several times and each time it changes a little. The two close friends also voiced the suspicion of her lying about what happened to the police.
Police of Rialto, California have yet to discover signs of foul play but are conducting a drowning investigation and at some point will perform an autopsy.
