Rodney King was found dead on Sunday (June 17) morning in Rialito, California.

TMZ reports that King’s fiancee found him dead at the bottom of a pool. Law enforcement sources responded to a call at 5:25 AM, and attempted CPR after removing King from the pool.

He was pronounced dead at 6:11 AM.

In April of 1992, a jury acquitted four Los Angeles Police Department officers of beating King after a high-speed pursuit, despite the fact that the beating was infamously videotaped.

Thousands of people in Los Angeles rioted over the next six days, resulting in 53 deaths and roughly $1 billion in damages.

King was 47.
