Neglected Dogs Found In Dmx's House Had Serious Wounds

LATEST: The neglected dogs found buried at troubled rapper DMX's Arizona home had serious bite wounds, according to reports. Police raided the rapper/actor's Phoenix home last month (24Aug07) and seized 12 distressed pitbull terriers, who had no food or water. Cops also found the buried remains of three other dogs. The star, real name Earl Simmons, insists he hasn't visited the property for two months and had asked caretaker Brad Blackwell to look after his pets. Authorities investigating the allegations of neglect revealed that one of the dead dogs had serious bite wounds, the other had trauma to its abdomen - while a third dog was burnt so badly the exam was inconclusive, reports TMZ.com. Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio says, "We have 12 dogs who were abused and three dogs buried in the yard. Someone's going to have to pay." But DMX's lawyer insists his client is not to blame, saying, "How do you attribute activities to a person who has not been there, when they have knowledge that other persons have been? Is it because of the celebrity nature?" As yet, no charges against the rapper have been filed.
