Surely the facts are not in dispute so far.
“Rodney King, who was at the center of a police brutality trial after a vicious 1991 beating, has died at 47.
The officers who attacked King were acquitted in 1992, leading to the Los Angeles riots.
According to TMZ’s sources, King’s fiancée found him dead at the bottom of a pool, but there are few other details at this time.”
And being an infinitely more reliable source than any in the “Mainstream” Harvey Levin and his band of merry elves
“Rodney King’s fiancée is telling friends Rodney had been drinking all day Saturday … and had smoked weed in the hours leading up to his death … sources close to King tell TMZ.
According to our sources, King’s fiancée, Cynthia Kelley, is telling friends King was at the house all day drinking, and he smoked marijuana at some point, before she went to went to bed at 2:00 AM.
We’re told Kelley says she next saw King at around 5:00 AM when she was awoken by him screaming in the backyard. Our sources say Kelley found King naked, banging on the glass, and she called out to him, “What’s wrong, Rodney?”
Kelley is telling friends she then went to grab her phone when she heard a big splash. She then went to the backyard and discovered him in the bottom of the pool and called police.
Paramedics attempted to revive King, but were unsuccessful.”
