LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Police say Rodney King's fiancDee heard a splash and went outside to find him at the bottom of the pool.
He had been talking to her through an open door, and had been poolside through the early morning on Sunday.
Police in Rialto, Calif. responded and found him in the pool.
The 47-year-old King was declared dead at a hospital early Sunday.
Police Capt. Randy De Anda says there were no signs of paraphernalia or alcoholic beverages and no obvious signs of trauma.
King's videotaped beating by Los Angeles police led to race riots after the officers accused of beating him were acquitted.
