Rodney King Had A LOT Of Drugs In His System When He Died

| Filed under: DrugsLegal MattersSad Sad

We knew that Rodney King may have been drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana right before his death in June, but it the autopsy conclusion has revealed two more influencing factors.

The former Celebrity Rehab star was also using cocaine and PCP!

Ugh! So sad that he gave into his demons and, from the looks of it, they cost him his life.

King, whose infamous police beating sparked the L.A. Riots in 1992, was found dead in his swimming pool shortly after 5 a.m. on June 17.

Despite friends' concerns that foul play may have been involved because they didn't buy fiancée Cynthia Kelly's story, the authorities have ruled his drowning death to be accidental.

It was an unfortunate and all-too-soon end to his life, but we hope that Rodney King rests in peace.
