RIALTO, Calif. (AP) -- An autopsy has been completed on Rodney King, but the results won't be released for several weeks.

San Bernardino County sheriff's and coroner's spokeswoman Jodi Miller says King's autopsy was completed Monday. A cause of death will not be determined until after investigators have toxicology results, which typically take between four to six weeks.

King was pulled from the deep end of his pool in Rialto, Calif. early Sunday morning.

The 47-year-old became famous after he was severely beaten by Los Angeles police in 1991. The acquittal and mistrial of four officers tried with felony assault a year later sparked the Los Angeles riots.

Rialto police are investigating King's death as an apparent drowning and say they have found no signs of foul play.
