Rodney King's Death: Who's to Blame?
June 18, 2012
Following Rodney King's death yesterday, reports have surfaced that some of King's friends are suspicious about his fiancee's version of what took place.
King's fiancee, Cynthia Kelley, says that she found his body at the bottom of his pool. Reportedly, police have concluded that Kelley has been "cooperative and forthright" in her account.
Still, King's death came as a surprise to many, including KCBS anchor Pat Harvey, who conducted one of King's last interviews.
"I really thought he was looking forward to the next chapter," Harvey told The Insider's Kevin Frazier.
In 2008, King appeared on Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew after battling addictions to drugs and alcohol, but Harvey got the impression that King had put those demons behind him.
"The last time I spoke with him, he really thought that he had it under control," said Harvey.
