Rhames says Cdn. actor may have suffered aneurysm

TORONTO (CP) _ A Canadian who was found dead earlier this month outside the home of actor Ving Rhames may have suffered an aneurysm, the star says.

"There was such a lack of blood at the scene," Rhames told People magazine. "They think possibly an aneurysm in the brain."

Jacob Adams, 40, was found dead at Rhames’s Los Angeles home on Aug. 3 _ his chest, arms and legs covered in dog bites.

He was hired by the "Mission: Impossible" co-star to care for his four dogs _ three hulking mastiffs and an English bulldog _ after the two became friends on a Toronto movie set.

The Los Angeles coroner’s office says it will be weeks before they receive toxicology results that may show what happened in the hours before Adams’s body was discovered by police.

A memorial service was held for Adams _ who was also an actor and screenwriter _ over the weekend in Mississauga, Ont.

Rhames told People he wanted to "set the record straight" about the death, adding that Adams was more like "a member of the family" than "a caretaker."

Rhames noted that Adams didn’t have any bites on his face or neck, but had "scratches to the middle of his torso as if the dogs were trying to pull him over."

Police have suggested the dogs may have sensed Adams was in trouble and tried to pull him toward the house.

Rhames told People that his friend’s death is "surrealistic."
