Rodney King Dead after Presumed Drowning
He was discovered in the pool of his Rialto home by his fiancée Cynthia Kelley, whose first date with King was at a Newport Beach pizzeria the day after she served on a Los Angeles civil jury that awarded him $3.8 million.
Kelley told Rialto Police that King spent Saturday drinking and smoking pot before she went to bed at 2 a.m. this morning. After being plucked out of the pool, CPR was performed to no avail.
