Rodney King

Weed Plants, Pitchfork

Confiscated from Home

breaking news

0618_rodney_king_death_scene_launchCops have confiscated weed plants and a pitchfork from Rodney King's home as evidence in the death investigation.

Cops are also looking into reports that Rodney was crying uncontrollably shortly before his next-door neighbor heard a splash.

Rodney's fiancee reportedly told police she didn't try to pull Rodney from the pool because she's a poor swimmer.

Meanwhile, the coroner has completed the autopsy on King's body ... but will not announce an official cause of death until additional toxicology tests and tissue studies have been performed.

The results usually take between 4 to 6 weeks.

A rep for the San Bernardino County Sheriff-Coroner Department tells us, "There will be no final ruling as to the cause and manner of death until the requested test results have been received and reviewed in context with the autopsy findings."

TMZ broke the story ... King's fiancee discovered his body at the bottom of the pool at the couple's home in Rialto, CA on Sunday morning.

King's fiancee insists Rodney had been drinking and smoking pot in the hours before his death -- and believes his death was accidental. However, people close to Rodney are concerned she's not telling the whole story.

Stay tuned ...

What a bunch of rude, obnoxious punks on this site, speculating on how he died and even going as far as saying she killed him. It could be something as simple as he slipped on the steps and knocked himself out and drowned, but that is not as exciting as your made for TV ideas. None of you computer detectives were there and rely on what you've read on TMZ as your news outlet. Let the law and the coroner give us the reality of it and quit coming up with the dozen of other reasons why the man is dead.

Maybe when the lady cop looks at herself in the TMZ photo's, she will go on a diet.

Sad that he went through all the stuff he did, just to end up dying in a pool! Sounds crazy to me & it seems like a set-up! Something is off

It was a cop, who had been in the basement with the butler holding the candle stick!

You are a poor swimmer? Are you serious? How long was this chick living with him? I'm sorry, but if you really love someone you would do anything to save them. I wouldn't think twice about it. My guess is she bashed him with the pitchfork and left him in the water face down for a reason.

PLEASE SIGN AND SHARE THIS PETITION TO HAVE CASEY ANTHONY TRIED IN FEDERAL COURT. CREATED 4/14/12

Double jeopardy is subject to the dual sovereignty doctrine. It states that a person can be tried for the same crime twice if he or she is being tried by more than one distinct, sovereign government. A person could be tried by the federal government and by a state government for the same crime because both are distinctly sovereign units that have their own sets of laws and their power derived from different sets of people

The petition addresses the DOJ policy that guides them in deciding whether or not to bring federal charges against someone after a person has already been tried by a state

this whole story about how he died and his fiancée . There's something fishy about this whole story. Don't make sense to me at all. If my husband was banging on the glass. Anybody would immediately go outside and see what the F is going one. Not go back to bed.????????????????
