So yeah, as you can read from the headline: a guy actually ate another guy’s face. Like, zombie-style. And unlike our cannibal story from last week, this was an uninvited munch-a-thon.
Rudy Eugene, 31, was shot dead as he feasted on his victim’s lips, ears, eyes, and nose, ripping off the flesh with his bare teeth. The guy was also fully naked and totally out of it, baring his teeth at police officers.
“The guy was like tearing him to pieces with his mouth, so I told him, ‘Get off!’” said the cyclist who witnessed the grisly scene. “He just kept eating the other guy away, like ripping his skin. The police officer came over, told him several times to get off, and an officer climbed over the divider and got in front of him and said: ‘Get off!’”
Eugene was warned to stop eating his victim: “He told him several times and the guy just stood his head up like that with a piece of flesh in his mouth and growled. The guy, he was like a zombie, blood dripping. It was intense.”
No doubt, the eye witness will have those images seared into his memory: “The closest thing I’ve seen to it? The Walking Dead. I never thought I would see someone eating someone. It was really, really horrific.”
Apparently, the guy was hopped up on a new designer drug called ‘Bath Salts.’ What a misleading name–kinda gives the image of a relaxing high–instead: people-eating. The drug is a variant of LSD and causes feelings of invincibility, aggression, paranoia and superhuman strength.
Eugene and the victim were both homeless, and the victim was seen writhing in pain before help arrived. He’s still in critical condition.
Man, let’s keep people-eating on the silver screen, folks.
