VING RHAMES’ DOGS CLEARED BY CORONER: Five month investigation concludes actor’s caretaker died of a bad ticker.
(January 21, 2008)

A coroner’s report has found that Ving Rhames’ caretaker died of a preexisting heart problem, and not from dog bites found on his body following an August incident at the actor’s home, reports People magazine.

Los Angeles Department of Coroner spokesman Ed Winter concluded that Rhames’s “dogs didn’t kill Mr. Adams. The dog bites found on him were determined to be non-fatal.”

The caretaker, Jacob Adams, 40, was found dead on the front lawn of Rhames’ Brentwood home on Aug. 3. Initial reports suggested that the actor’s four dogs three mastiffs and one bulldog had bitten Adams to death. The notion had been supported by Capt. Matt Blake of the LAPD, who said upon discovery of the body that Adams was “definitely mauled” by the dogs, however, “there [was] no solid evidence that they were the cause of death.”

Rhames, who was filming a movie in Bulgaria at the time, released a statement two weeks later describing the incident as a “shocking and terrible tragedy.” His dogs, which were initially quarantined by officials, have since been returned to the actor.
