Rodney King was found dead at his LA home on Sunday.
He was 47.
Back in 1991, King was beaten by Los Angeles Police after leading them on a high speed chase.
The video of the incident showed King being stuck over 50 times by police batons.
The subsequent acquittal of the police officers involved sparked the LA riots.
King was found at the bottom of his pool on Sunday.
Police are now conducting a drowning investigation.
