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.

He was a human being, pedophiles, and people who shoot and rob people for a few bucks are not good people in the least. this person Bob who calls Mr.King a 'piece of crap who met a well deserved end'? Is a mindless fool, to say things like that are just silly.He will be judged and so will you Bob and it will be by the same God. I think he has a better chance than you, JMO and Ca. is a medical Marijuana state, growing is not against the law.

No, the cops don't believe her, the cops don't care.

If he was banging on the door trying to call to her and then splashed and drowned I got two theories.

1) Non-conspiracy theory: He was having a heart attack, was calling for help, none came, and fell in the pool and drown.

2) Conspiracy theory: He saw someone coming after him, called out for help, none came, and they drowned him. Possibly cops, possibly someone mad about the riots, possibly drug-dealers, possibly some other dude banging his girl or whose girl he was banging.

I lean towards number 2, but they're both possible and we'll never hear the truth.

What I don't believe is the drunk/stoned fell in and drowned story, yet that will be the official ruling. If so, why was he calling out to her?

first of all if someone's being on the window when you get up and go outside or look through that window.her story don't make sense. And the cops. Don't really care about Rodney King. You want to be a rocket scientist to know that. So there just going to sweep under you know what I mean. And that'll be the end of that.rest in peace Rodney.. And if I see you one day we'll both be party,God bless Rodney's brother and sisters..

Smells like murder to me. His family should hire some help 'cause the cops may not be on it.

How her story changed:

1) "He tripped on the side, hit his head."
2) "He fell from the roof..."
3) "I cracked him upside..."
