Rodney King Death

Cops Believe Fiancee

6/18/2012 4:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0618_rodney_king_Cynthia_Kelley_tmzPolice do NOT believe Rodney King's fiancee is hiding information about his death.

Law enforcement sources at the Rialto PD tell TMZ ... they've concluded Cynthia Kelley has been "cooperative and forthright" in her account of the events leading up to Rodney King's death.

As TMZ reported, several of King's friends tell us Kelley changed her story several times -- that she heard Rodney banging on the window at around 5 AM Sunday and then heard him fall in the pool.  The 2 friends spoke with cops, expressing doubt about her story.

Our law enforcement sources say they have no reason to question Kelley's honesty.  As one law enforcement source said, "People in the neighborhood are just speculating."

Our sources say as of now, this is still being investigated as an accidental death with no foul play.  There are no suspects or people of interest.

Is this the same LAPD that tried to tell the public that the smashed bones in Rodney King's face came from him hitting the street while he was fighting with them? Of course the LAPD said this before they realized their was a video of them savagely beating him with their clubs. I have a hard time believing anything the LAPD says

Though troubled and I doubt ever comfortable in the spotlight, Rodney King seemed like he had a pretty good heart. Watching a piece on him today, I was brought to tears watching him say again, 'can we all get along?'

Rest in peace Rodney King

The cops would rather just wrap this up. Move along folks, nnnnnnothing to see.. I'm sure the guy was drunk/high and managed to fall in the pool and drowned. Any investigation is just going through the motions at this point with them already deciding on the outcome.

I still think his whole house and yard shoulda been laid out with survielance cameras given the video helped him so much in the past, it only costs about 300 bucks for a cheapy system!

Cops hold grudges with people like this. Even though it was a long time ago, it is still the point that he caused so much confusion and made the department look bad. Plus, because of him police officers dealt with much ridicule and disrespect. They will feel this was just-do revenge.
And that is all obvious because the story released has so many holes in it and is still to be easily believable. Marijuana, as far as i understand, would not make someone get naked, make a paranoid statement, and just run and jump in the pool for no reason.
