Even though Rodney King’s friends say they don’t believe his fiancée’s story, the LAPD does.
According to TMZ, law enforcement sources say they’ve concluded that 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.”
Even in death, controversy continues to follow Rodney King. Police are still investigating this incident as an accidental death with no foul play, as there are no suspects or people of interest.
