Rodney King, whose beating by Los Angeles police in 1991 was caught on camera and sparked riots after the acquittal of the four officers involved, was found dead in his swimming pool Sunday, authorities and his fiancee said. He was 47.
King said as the officers beat him, they yelled, "We are going to kill you, n***er," although the officers denied using racial slurs.
