DMX “Devastated” Over Loss of Dogs, Still No Charges Filed
DMX’s attorney, Murray Richman, told reporters on Monday that his client is “devastated” by the loss of 12 dogs confiscated during a raid on his Cave Creek, Arizona home on Friday (August 24). No charges have been filed against the Yonkers native as of yet. According to The Arizona Republic, Richman continued to deny any wrongdoing on his client’s part. “My client is totally innocent of all the charges here,” Richman said. “Well, there are no charges.” During the raid, Maricopa County deputies confiscated the 12 dogs, plus a cache of guns and a substance they believe to be illegal narcotics. Deputies also dug up the bodies of three dead dogs on the property, one of which appeared to have been burned. Sheriff Joe Arpaio says they believe the unidentified substance to be methamphetamine, but they are waiting on lab results for confirmation. “Hopefully, by tonight, we’ll have a result,” Arpaio said. A disagreement has also arisen over when exactly the rapper last visited the residence. While Richman says his client hasn’t been there in “several months,” Arpaio says neighbors have reported seeing X at the home within the last three weeks.
