R.I.P. Rodney King

17 Jun

April 2, 1965 – June 17, 2012

Sad to say on a day like today, we lost another life this week. Rodney King, 47 who is known for being brutally beat by L.A. police in 1991, which was caught on video and led to the L.A. Riots after the officers were acquitted was found at the bottom of his swimming pool by his fiancée Cynthia Kelley at 5:25 a.m. Police arrived on the scene at Mr. Kings home in Rialto and tried to resuscitate Mr. King who was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead at 6:11 a.m. So far in the investigation the Rialto Police are saying they see no signs of foul play, they are investigating the scene as a drowning and there will be an autopsy performed. Over the next couple of weeks I’m sure we will be updated with recent information regarding his case and the completion of his autopsy report. My condolences and prayers go out to Mr. King’s family and friends at this difficult time.
