Neighbors of Rodney King, the man whose videotaped beating by LAPD officers sparked the LA Riots, say they heard a "commotion" coming from his Rialto, California home the night before he was found dead Sunday morning.

According to TMZ sources, King's fiancée Cynthia Kelley found him at the bottom of his pool Sunday. He was pronounced dead at 6:11 AM.

Law enforcement sources say Rialto PD will open a drowning investigation, but so far there are no signs of foul play.

Neighbor Sandra Garcia told the LA Times she heard the sounds of sobbing coming from the home Saturday night. "There was a lot of moaning and crying," she said.

Another neighbor, Bob Carlberg, said he heard "yelling back and forth. I couldn't quite make it out."

Police found the 47-year-old King lying motionless at the bottom of the pool.

Ms. Kelley, who was a member of the jury that awarded King $3.8 million in a settlement, told friends she awoke to the sound of King yelling in the backyard. He had been drinking all day and smoking weed.

She said he was naked and banging on the glass. But she didn't get up to see what the commotion was. Later she said she heard a loud splash.

Kelley dialed 911 at 5:11 a.m. to report King was at the bottom of the pool. Police arrived within minutes and dived into the pool to retrieve King's body.

The acquittal of four LAPD officers accused in the videotaped beating of King sparked the 1992 Los Angeles riots that left 53 dead and thousands more injured. 4,000 National Guardsmen were called out to help put an end to 6 days of violence and looting.

King, who had past convictions for assault, battery and robbery, made an impassioned plea to rioters, included his now famous quote: "Can't we all just get along?"

In 2009 King was awarded $3.8 in a settlement for violating his civil rights. He became engaged to one of the jurors who awarded him the money. In 2007 King was shot multiple times in the face, arms, back and torso during a domestic dispute.

King was in and out of jail in recent years. He reportedly died penniless.

      I didn't think much of it, but when I relayed his fiance's story to hubby his response was, "He was murdered." Now that her story has changed several times and the neighbors heard a commotion I'm suspicious myself. Her story never made sense.

      Yeah they do
      but I think floating starts after they have been dead for a while
      In the beginning they sink to the bottom and then float afterwards.

      Morning..

      I too thought it was odd that the commotion woke her up around 5, and yet according to other reports, 911 didn't receive a call until 5:25.

      As for the house, it's in the least expensive county in SoCal. Couldn't have cost more than 275K 10 years ago.

      Each one is different, but what is listed is the standard.

      KDub didn't have no bridesmaids.

      I have even had a bride that brought our shoes (which I didnt really LIKE cause I like to try my shat ON) AND made us alllll awaken at 5:15 a.m....after driving 9 hours to participate..to go get our hair done so we could ALLL have matching identical updo's. All 8 of us. Yes 8. I digress 5 years later. But that wedding? Made ME retire from bridesmaid-hood.

      Not married but been a maid (or matron, I get them mixed up) AND bridesmaid (TWICE). Bridesmaids should pay for their dress (if they can afford it, if not bow out of the wedding, less headache and friendship loss for EVERYBODY) and shoes.

      ....and :cosign: with @Candi I o'ont wanna be in NOBODY's wedding. I only want to dress up, spectate, eat, dance and go the fugg home. I MIGHT help clean up, pending on the person getting married. LOL

      @Naija, this wedding was actually on my Nigerian side so in addition to the dress buying we had to buy our fabric for the traditional wedding, and get it sewn. She had hair ties for us though.

      After that wedding I said I will no longer participate. Hell I even decided to have a court wedding and a damn party afterwards. TOO MUCH STRESS and $$ being spent on a day. Nah son.

      Well, long story short, the big one (he's 10) reported me to the peoples last week for reminding him that I am not to be disrespected in my house by him. He told them he's afraid of me and has been since the beginning.

      Told me he's afraid for his life cause I could kill him and wanted someone to talk to me. Doesn't even realize what he may have done cause he wants to walk and talk like he's Mr. Untouchable.

Had a sample of all the dresses ready for us to try on and we all matched in color jewerly and shoes. She knew also that every face didn't fit every hairstyle so she said formal not funky no colors and keep it simple. We all looked very pretty and the pictures were great.

      :yes: and I would respect them MORE for doin that, instead of being a hellian/heathen on MY day. THATS why I don’t even want to fool with folks (when I do ever get married). Ain’t nobody got time for that. I will hold a meeting IN THE BEGINNING laying out ALL the rules and expectations, so that there is not ONE misunderstanding.

      Well good then that you didn't hit him Yso. His ungrateful self doesn't even realize what he's doing.

      Maybe drive him through the hood and point out all of the stuff that he could be doing, but you're not letting him do :shrug: (ie. waste his life on the corner) and try to talk to him.

      :no: Yso that's horrible. Someone needs to have a lil talk with to let him realize how HARD it can get on these streets when you are in the state/city's custody. Ungrateful. But there could be a major underlying issue so don't go too hard on him.

      Well, long story short, the big one (he’s 10) reported me to the peoples last week for reminding him that I am not to be disrespected in my house by him. He told them he’s afraid of me and has been since the beginning.

      Told me he’s afraid for his life cause I could kill him and wanted someone to talk to me. Doesn’t even realize what he may have done cause he wants to walk and talk like he’s Mr. Untouchable.

      Makes me wish I had actually whooped his ass to make this nonsense worth the trouble. Never know. Still might. The day is young.

      I love Nina, too :yes: I do.....

    • Usual Suspect

      Just scrolled up, so he's angry? Is he/ya'll currently in counseling. When you can't beat kids, counseling helps. I got Mister kids in counseling. It has helped slightly.

      The daughter wrote in her diary that she wanted to kill herself cause, her mother is a piece of S H I T and will always be a peiece of S H I T.

      It was never brought up that her diary was read...She talked about her mother something bad. I WAS SHOCKED...These kids be hurting.

    • YSoSrs

      He just finished therapy this February after doing it for about two years. We even did family therapy where I learned the alternatives to physical discipline that I have been using.

      But I guess that wasn't enough. He doesn't think I should even raise my voice to his ass or that he shouldn't talk back or huff his breath or roll his eyes when I tell him something for the thousandth time.

      He wants to do and say what he feels like and I'm not to correct him in any way, shape, or form. Fck. That. Sht. :nono:

      Not making light of your situation, but I say let him make that call; hell, help him pack. He'll realize soon enough he ain't about that life and that he really has it good at home...Sometimes it takes the act, though, when talking isn't convincing enough.

      I tell mine all the time, you are welcome at ANY time to get THEE fukk out. Rolling your eyes cause you have to empty the dishwasher....

      HUN-TEE let me tell you. I had TWO of my (great) nieces (9 and 11 - I think) this weekend, plus for some strange and odd reason my daughter (17) has been home from (boarding) school for the past 3 weeks (I need to get down to the bottom of why she ain't returned back to her weekly place of residence). Anywho, I had them lil girls this weekend and I do know there were more than two hands and foots, that I had to tell one, both or all three that I was gone knock their head off they shoulders if they didn't quit doin xyz! By the time my nieces (THEIR mama's) returned, them kids were outside on the porch, waiting for them to pull up. Where was I you ask, in my house with the air on and the storm door, LOCKED! :nana:

      No. It's all him. He's dramatic like that.

      @EVERYONE ELSE

      Thanks. :hugs: I'm not really worried. He's not an abused child and anyone with eyes and ears and common sense will realize that.

      I'm just angry and disappointed. He thinks he has more power than he does. I'm tempted to tell them to take him for a week so he can see just how good he has it and how bad it could be elsewhere.

      Girl. I need to stop telling him and SHOW him. I would send him to his mama house but I don't trust her. She lies and fills his head with bullsht and she would spoil him knowing she would only have him a few days.

      He has forgotten what it was really like living with her. All he wants to remember is the "freedom" he had not the price he paid and is still paying for that freedom.

      That's why he doesn't have any contact with her. The last time I tried was Mother's Day. I will not keep extending myself to keep their relationship going if she doesn't care enough to make an effort of her own. But that makes me the bad guy to him. I'm losing either way and I'm just tired. *sigh*

    • http://wineandgummybears.blogspot.com/ gypsyeyes

      My .02 cents. My Lil brother is adopted and he pulled this same crap on my mom. I packed up some tshirts and drawers and took him to his bio mom, who at the time was a crack head/prostitute. I knew that it wasn't right but he had set some things on fire, poured water down the back of the big screen TV, threatened my son and the works. After seeing his momma and seeing that she couldn't provide shiat for him straightened his azz out. Again I know that it wasn't right but he was always saying that he would runaway and go find his real mother. That he hated us and he wished he was with her.

    • yallcrazy

      DC @ Choco

    • YSoSrs

      @LAKER & GYPSY

      If I thought that it would do him some good I would pack him up this weekend.

      But his mom is the ultimate manipulator. Like she told my sister she is dying of cancer and she wants to see her kids before she goes. The bitch hasn't even had and tests done and probably isn't even sick from anything but her rotted liver. Nor has she called me to ask to visit. She even made him PROMISE he will come "home" to her when he's 18.

      So I think she will fill his head with lies and confuse him and make his attitude toward me worse, not better. I don't know. *sighs again*
