Neighbor says Rodney King was sobbing uncontrollably

Los Angeles Times reported that  Sandra Gardea, 31, one of Rodney King’s next door neighbors said she heard music playing and a man sobbing uncontrollably. She also heard Kings wife attempting to coax him inside

A next-door neighbor of Rodney King said she heard the 47-year-old in his backyard sobbing uncontrollably early Sunday, apparently after he had been up all night. Then she heard a splash.

King, an avid swimmer, was found dead at the bottom of his swimming pool Sunday morning, and detectives with the Rialto Police Department were still investigating the circumstances Monday.

King’s fiancée, Cynthia Kelley, called 911 at 5:25 a.m. after finding him, telling detectives she was unable to get him out of the pool because she was a poor swimmer.
