Autopsies of dogs found on DMX's property show abuse

Rapper and Yonkers native DMX could end up spending time behind bars after autopsies performed this weekend revealed that dogs buried on his property were abused.

Fifteen dogs were discovered at the rapper?s Phoenix, Arizona home in August. At least three of them were dead.

?The animals buried in the backyard, one was burned and the other two had trauma and dog bite indications,? Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County said.

A lawyer for the 36-year-old said his client had nothing to do with the incident. A friend of DMX told News 12 Westchester that the rapper, who now lives in Bedford, hadn?t been at his Arizona home in several months.

Police say they'll likely charge someone as their investigation continues.
