Via Yahoo: The scars from the more than 50 baton blows — those both inside and out— remained, but King struck an upbeat note on his life.
"America's been good to me after I paid the price and stayed alive through it all," he told The Associated Press. "This part of my life is the easy part now."
But King was found around 5:30 a.m. Sunday at the bottom of the swimming pool at his Rialto, Calif. Home. His death at age 47 is being treated as an apparent drowning and there are no signs of foul play, but Capt. Randy De Anda said autopsy results would be needed to determine whether drugs or alcohol were a factor.
The autopsy is set for Monday.
47? Doesn't he seem older than that? Anyway I'd like to point out that he is another Celebrity Rehab failure of Dr. Drew's. Is there anybody who received help from that show? Well besides financially. His fiancee said he spent the day drinking and smoked some pot at some point so that counts as another strike against Dr. Drew.
