Friends Question Fiance's Story Surrounding King's Death

Police in Rialto, California are still trying to determine the facts surrounding the death Sunday of Rodney King.
Following a call made to 911 around 5:25 a.m., June 17 by King's fiance Cynthia Kelley, police responded to the home the couple shared, where they found his body at the bottom of their swimming pool. After several attempts to revive King, 47, he was pronounced dead. No evidence of foul play was discovered, but an autopsy was scheduled.
Now, friends of King who shot to notoriety in 1991 after suffering a brutal beating in Los Angeles at the hands of police officers, aren't buying Kelley's story.
According to a report , the friends claim that each time they hear Kelley's recount about incidents that led up to King's death, the facts change, which leads them to believe she is covering something up.
Kelley reportedly stated that after she had a conversation with King, she heard a banging on the window of their home in the wee hours of Sunday morning. Kelley then allegedly said that after the window rapping, she heard King fall in to the pool.
The report further states that two of King's friends have taken their suspicions to police detectives, who in turn, told them that they would be in touch.
