Rodney King

Death Home

SOLD!

11/21/2013 4:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1121-rodney-king-tmz-01Rodney King's family just proved ... death is not a buzzkill in the real estate market  ... 'cause they sold the house Rodney died in for a fat profit.

As you may recall ... King was found dead in the home's backyard pool last year in Rialto, California -- and now ... just a year later, his fam unloaded the house for over $100k more than he paid. 

Our real estate sources say the realtor who sold the house did what the law requires ... disclose the death, but it had no negative impact on the sale.

Rodney bought the 2,084 square foot home in '01 for $156k ... and it was sold last month for $260k.

It has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and well ... a swimming pool.

Hopefully they used a lot of chlorine.

There's a problem here    

Dude must have been making a few bucks somewhere. I don't know about California real estate but those look like decent digs.

He got a huge settlement from the LAPD (LA taxpayers).
He couldn't spend it ALL on booze and crack.

"Hopefully they used a lot of chlorine."
Is TMZ saying he emptied his bowels into the pool?

I wouldn't buy that house. Not because Rodney King died there. But because it's in one of the worst areas of Southern California. That area is horrible.

I will never understand how a classless piece of trash like TMZ stay in business. You people do know you'll have to account for your pathetic, heartless, low class actions one day right?

Why is this even news? Oh, that's right this is TMZ. A career junky that could have used a tragic event in his life to get out a positive message and CHOSE to be another degenerate drug user.

Just a foot note in LA's history. I was at Dodger stadium the night of the riots. A real calming message this gave the world.

Not a story & to make $100k after. 12 years is probs not so great. Still, poor excuse for a story.
