For those of you who have been following the story of the man dubbed the “Miami Zombie,” I’ve got some new information to share with you.
Ronald Poppo was reportedly conscious during the 18-minute attack that left him without 75 percent of his face, according to the Daily Mail.
Rudy Eugene, 31, was shot and killed by Miami police on Saturday after ignoring officers’ warnings to stop eating the face of a man along the MacArthur Causeway near Miami Beach.
Eugene reportedly took off and scattered his clothes as he walked across the causeway.
Police later found his drivers license and clothes strewn from the beach to the mainland - before pouncing on the homeless man he found sleeping on the elevated train tracks.
A number of passers-by passed the two men while the attack took place.
Miami officer Jose Rivera shot Eugene shortly after he arrived.
He shouted at Eugene to stop, but he simply got up and growled with pieces of flesh in his mouth and continued eating at the man's face.
Police believe Eugene might have taken bath salts, known as the new “LSD”.
Poppo, whose nose, mouth and eyes were torn off during the attack, is currently recovering at Miami’s Jackson Memorial Hospital.
Do you think he was really a zombie?
His friends suspect something supernatural was to blame?
