Rodney King’s Autopsy Reveals PCP, Cocaine, and Marijuana in His System



Rodney King’s death has been ruled accidental and yes, drugs were involved.

King, who is best known as the face of the LA Riots, passed away earlier this year in June after drowning in a backyard pool in Rialto, CA. Fingers were pointing at his fiancé Cynthia Kelly. Good news though, the police found no foul play and Kelly is off the hook.

With a history of drug abuse, it came as only a surprise to King’s brother, Zhan Paul King, who said his brother had “been doing very well and was happy,” and “was no longer abusing hardcore street drugs or using Phencyclidine (PCP).” Although PCP, among other drugs were found in King’s system including; alcohol, cocaine and marijuana.

The coroner summary noted, “The effects of the drugs and alcohol, combined with the subject’s heart condition, probably precipitated a cardiac arrhythmia and the subject, thus incapacitated, was unable to save himself and drowned. There is nothing in the history or autopsy examination to suggest suicide or homicide, and the manner of death is therefore judged to be accident.”

One person not surprised at the report was King’s neighbor, Bob Carlberg, “Unfortunately, I’m not surprised. I knew he smoked, and I’m not surprised there were other drugs. … It’s real sad, but I’m glad it was (ruled to be accidental).”

Socially awkward in most situations most 25 years olds would call easy, that’s me. TV is my soul mate, Music is my mistress and writing is my best friend. Without those three things, I’d be in an insane asylum calling myself Rosa Parks, refusing to sit in the back of the so called bus. I know more about pop culture and celebrities than I do about my family history, and I’d like to keep it that way. Words I live by: We´re all tiny books in one big compilation called life. Some of us will wait for what seems like forever for our climactic part to come. Others will have a romance novel their entire life. Or maybe one filled with just adventure. Or one that is a poetic tragedy. Then, there are those that will have best sellers. You know, the ones that everyone wants to read and base their versions on? Don´t forget the little paperbacks sold at the carwash that only a select few will ever lay eyes on. We´re all born with the power to either take what was written for us or choose our own adventures.
