Rodney King’s family is asking for help with donations, as his funeral costs are expecting to run about $22,000, and his family is now asking the public for donations via a memorial fund to help give King a proper burial. His three daughters and other family members are “desperately” trying to secure funding for the funeral, but the family’s said, “They need the money.”

Information on donating to the memorial fund, however, has yet to be released.

The funeral, which will be open to the public, is slated for June 30th at 2pm at the Hall of Liberty. King’s fiancée is not on the guest list. King will be buried later that day at the Forest Lawn cemetery in the Hollywood Hills.

Gumbumpers, do you think it’s a little odd they don’t have donation info available yet?
