It’s been weeks since the body of former Amazing Race producer, Jeff Rice, was found dead in Uganda, but with his assistant, Kathryne Fuller, now stable enough to speak to police, details are finally beginning to emerge. So what really happened to Jeff Rice?
Appearing in court on Thursday (March 1), Jeff Rice’s assistant, Kathryne Fuller, admitted to authorities that it was an overdose that killed her boss, not poison, as it had been previously reported.
According to Fuller, the two received a bad batch of cocaine from a special-hire driver identified as 23-year-old Moses Kalanzi. Both Fuller and Rice used the drugs, which resulted in the former Amazing Race (CBS) producer’s death.
When the two were found, Kathryne was unconscious and immediately transported to the Surgery Clinic in Kololo. In critical condition, doctors were able to stabilize Fuller, but police sources tell E! that the right side of her body was left paralyzed.
Because of the country’s National Drug Policy and Authority Act of 2000, Kathryne was charged for smoking and sniffing narcotics and fined $400.
The driver, Kalanzi, has since been arrested for providing Fuller and Rice with the drugs, but has denied charges of manslaughter and supplying restricted narcotics.
