His body was found by his fiancee, Cynthia Kelley, on Sunday morning (June 17) at the bottom of a swimming pool.

CPR was attempted by paramedics, but they ultimately could not revive him. While no foul play is suspected, police reportedly will open a drowning investigation.

TMZ is also reporting that Cynthia has disclosed to friends that Rodney had reportedly been drinking and smoking marijuana before his death.
