Rhames 'Stunned' By Caretaker's Death

LATEST: Actor VING RHAMES was "stunned" when he read that his caretaker had been mauled to death by his dogs, because the employee had looked after the animals for years. Jacob Adams, 40, was pronounced dead in front of Rhames' Brentwood, California home earlier this month (Aug07). He was first thought to be the victim of an attack by the Pulp Fiction star's pets. But officials have been unable to determine the cause of death, and are looking into the possibility Adams suffered either a heart attack or an aneurysm. Rhames, who was filming in Bulgaria at the time of the incident, is awaiting the result of a toxicology report so he can start mourning his friend's death. He tells People.com, "My dogs are family dogs. Jacob didn't have any bites on his face or neck. He had scratches to the middle of his torso as if the dogs were trying to pull him over. "He had a few bite marks on his arms and legs, but there were only two imprints on the top and two on the bottom meaning the dogs didn't clamp down on him in an aggressive fashion. "There was such a lack of blood at the scene. They think possibly an aneurysm in the brain. They're doing a toxicology report. They will know (the results) in six to eight weeks. Closure for me will be when the coroner says what was the cause of death." Rhames adds, "He was much more than a caretaker. He really became a member of the family... He was the person I could trust. "If I was out of town, Jacob would take care of my properties. I was stunned because Jacob knew my dogs. He took care of them. When I found out, I was shocked, especially when I read that they said my dogs mauled him."
