The two men, attacker and victim, have been identified in the horrific cannibal attack where Miami police shot and killed a naked man, now identified as Rudy Eugene (a real life Hannibal Lecter) for not stopping his zombie-like vicious and gruesome attack on victim, now identified as alleged homeless man, Ronald Poppo.
Rudy Eugene, 31, has now been identified as the naked man shot and killed by police after being witnessed eating on and tearing the flesh from the face of Ronald Poppo, a 65 year old alleged homeless man, now listed in critical condition at Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center, after Eugene’s vicious attack on him in broad daylight Saturday.
The incident happened on the Downtown off-ramp of Miami’s busy MacArthur Causeway.
Disturbing photos of the men lying on the off-ramp naked began hitting the internet this week and the story has now becOme a national spread incident.
One witness, Larry Vega, a cycler tells a story of the vicious attack he seen from up-close saying it was the most “traumatic thing” he had ever seen in his life as Eugene, who he told to ‘Get off’ of Poppo was continually tearing at Poppo’s face with his mouth ripping the flesh from it.
As reported, Eugene would not stop even at the presence of police, after standing with pieces of flesh in his mouth, Eugene growled like a wild animal then again started back eating at Poppo’s face, before being shot to death by police.
Allegedly, Eugene was on a LSD-like new drug called “bath salts,” but that leaves little explanation still for such as vicious attack even if drug induced.
Police are still investigating and seeking anyone with possible more information regarding this horrific incident.
