"A next-door neighbor of Rodney King said she heard the 47-year-old in his backyard sobbing uncontrollably early Sunday, apparently after he had been up all ***. Then she heard a splash.
King, an avid swimmer, was found dead at the bottom of his swimming pool Sunday morning, and detectives with the Rialto Police Department were still investigating the *** Monday.Â
King's fiancÃ©e, Cynthia Kelley, called 911 at 5:25 a.m. after finding him, telling detectives she was unable to get him out of the pool because she was a poor swimmer."
"One neighbor, Sandra Gardea, 31, said she heard music playing and a man crying in King's backyard from about 3 a.m. to 5 a.m. She also heard King's fiancÃ©e trying to coax him back into the house.
"It wasn't like an argument," Gardea said. "She was just saying, 'Get in the house. Get in the house.' "
Sounds like he was depressed and intentionally jumped in. He killed himself. Poor Rodney!
