Rodney King was found dead by his fiance early this morning, according to multiple media reports. King was somewhat of the poster-child for race relations, and police profiling in the media when he became famous after video footage was made public from his run-in with the LAPD back in the 1991. The police officers involved in the famous beating were acquitted following trial which sparked massive outcry from the public.  King was found dead at the bottom of a pool. No official word yet on what happened. King has had numerous run-ins with the law, and has battled with depression following the beating.
