While many still can’t wrap their heads around the fact that Miami resident Rudy Eugene, 31, was shot and killed for eating the face of homeless drifter, Ronald Poppo, 65; there are still questions that need to be answered. The “Miami Face-Eating Zombie” story has captivated the internet, but many people don't know the specific facts of the case.
Details are still emerging about what happened on that Sunday afternoon when Eugene rolled up on Poppo and decided to take a bite out of his face.
For instance, it’s being reported that Eugene was on a serious drug trip. Miami police officers are saying that he was on “bath salts,” or another higher potent form of LSD.
Along with tripping off LSD, Eugene spent the night before partying hard during Miami’s Urban Beach Week and he also apparently abandoned his car moments before he stumbled upon Poppo.
When all is said and done, the crazy case of the “face-chewing naked man” will be talked about in Miami for years to come.
