Friends Of Rodney King Not Buying His Fiance’s Story About How He Died
A day after his death friends of Rodney King are questioning the story told to police about how he passed away. Two close friends of King have told police that his fiance Cynthia Kelley has altered her story a couple of times according to TMZ.
Kelley initially told police that she was awakened by King screaming in their backyard at 5 AM. Sunday morning. When she got to him, he was naked and banging on the glass window. Kelley says she then went to grab her phone, heard a big splash and found King at the bottom of the pool. At that point she called police. They responded to the scene and found King dead.
A source told TMZ that King’s friends have heard Kelley tell the story several times, but it changed a bit each time and it seemed like she was lying about something.
King’s friends have gone to the police with this information and were told a Detective would be in touch with them.
An autopsy and drowning investigation is pending
