Rodney, whose infamous beating spurred the LA riots, was found dead at the bottom of his swimming pool — how tragic.
Rodney King — whose 1991 assault by the LAPD made him the face of the resulting LA riots — has died.
Rodney was found by his fiancée at the bottom of his swimming pool at their Rialito, Calif. home, TMZ reports. A drowning investigation is being opened by police.
We wish Rodney’s family the best during this difficult time.
