Rodney King’s Family in Need of Burial Money

Rodney King

The late Rodney King's family members contend that there's not enough money to pay for his burial. (Estimated cost: $22,000) They hope to be able to bury him at the Forest Lawn cemetery in Hollywood Hills where Michael Jackson is buried. 

Although King won a $3.8 million settlement in a suit against the LAPD, his family members claim he died penniless. On top of the burden of paying for the funeral, many are questioning the events preceding his death— noting that he was an avid swimmer. His fiancee, Cynthia Kelley, was the only one around the night of his death and has allegedly changed her story a couple times. Kelley has not been invited to the funeral services and King's death is still being investigated.
