The naked Florida man who chewed off the face of another man last month in a zombie-like cannibal attack used marijuana but not “bath salts” as police had suspected, authorities said Wednesday.
Rudy Eugene, 31, was killed by a police officer after Eugene’s 18-minute attack on a homeless man. His body didn’t show “any other street drugs, alcohol or prescription drugs, or any adulterants found in street drugs,” according to the Miami-Dade County Medical Examiner Department.
“The department has also sought the assistance of an outside forensic toxicology reference laboratory, which has confirmed the absence of ‘bath salts,’ synthetic marijuana and LSD,” the statement said.
A video of last month’s incident shows Eugene coming across 65-year-old Ronald Poppo on a sidewalk along Miami’s MacArthur Causeway, stripping clothes off him and eventually chewing on his face. Police said Poppo lost 75% of his face in the attack. …
Sure. Yes. All pot users get naked and eat people’s faces. This is one of the side effects. You just don’t hear about it because, typically, they will eat the entire body (and all witnesses) before the police get there … and the drug re-writes people’s memories so they don’t even remember the cannibalism. You’ve heard of “the munchies,” right? It’s so much worse than you know. Don’t do drugs!
