    Rodney King — the man who was at the center of the infamous Los Angeles riots — was found dead this morning in Rialito, CA. He was 47.

    According to our sources, King’s fiancée found him dead at the bottom of a pool.

    Law enforcement sources tell TMZ they responded to a call at 5:25 AM PT. We’re told they physically removed King from the pool and attempted CPR.

    Our sources say he was pronounced dead at 6:11 AM.

    Law enforcement sources say Rialto PD will open a drowning investigation, but so far there are no signs of foul play.

    King became famous in 1991 when he was the victim of police brutality at the hands of the LAPD. The officers involved in the incident were acquitted the following year and the announcement of the verdict led to the Los Angeles riots.
