It Wasn’t The Dogs’ Fault

August 14th, 2007 // 5 Comments

Good news in the dead guy at Ving Rhames’ house case. Well, good news for the dogs at least. The coroner is saying that it wasn’t the dogs who offed the guy. It looks like he might have succumbed via heart attack. The toxicology report is on the way to solve this mystery. Ving was quick to distance himself and his dogs from the sitch.

Ving, for his part, issued the following statement yesterday:

I was out of the country when this shocking and terrible tragedy occurred on my property. Jacob Adams was not just a devoted employee — he was also a dear friend. I want to offer my heartfelt condolences to his family. I am relieved to know that the coroner’s report confirmed that my dogs were not the cause of his death — and that any wounds found on his body were superficial. I would appreciate the media’s privacy for me and my family during this difficult time.

I don’t blame him. First thing you do – make sure everyone knows you were far far way. Secondly, it was a tragic accident hat you’re not liable for. I wonder if Paris’ magical damage control PR person advised him. If I may get gruesome for a second, this means the guy died and then the doggies tried eating him, right? Ugh. This is why people who live alone shouldn’t have pets. If you kick and the cat food runs out – it’s going to be closed casket.

    actually i think this means that while the dogs were attacking him, he died of being completely f-ing freaked out. he had a heart attack. a wound being postmortem is different than it being superficial

    Honestly, I own a mastiff (related to the breed that Ving’s dogs are) and most likely this guy had a heart attack and the dogs probably were trying to drag him somewhere after he fell… these dogs are bred to guard… not attack…. there is a difference… besides everyone knows cats are the evil ones.

    Even initially, they had to assume that the dogs did not CAUSE the death, since the caretakers was in a DIFFERENT ENCLOSED SECTION from that in which the dogs were located.
