VING RHAMES APOLOGIZES TO DOG MAULING VICTIM’S FAMILY

VING RHAMES OFFERS HIS CONDOLENCES » I’m sure y’all remember the TRAGEDY that occured on actor Ving Rhames’ property. He released a statement Monday:

“I was out of the country when this shocking and terrible tragedy occurred on my property,” the statement reads. “Jacob Adams was not just a devoted employee – he was also a dear friend. I want to offer my heartfelt condolences to his family.”

He went on to say that the coroner’s report confirmed that his dogs were not the cause of Adams’ death, but the Los Angeles Department of Coroners is saying that an autopsy is still pending, and no initial findings have been released. When they discovered the body, there was no immediate evidence leading up to the conclusion that the dogs caused the death. It is unclear if Rhames will face any liability in the case, or what the fate will be of his dogs, which are still in custody at the Los Angeles Department of Animal Services. Such a sad story…
