Silence of the Lambs, South Beach Edition: Miami Police Shoot Naked Man As He Ate the Face Of Other Naked Man (Update: Suspect ID’d as Rudy Eugene)
What on Earth …
The Miami police shot a naked man to death as he was in the process of of eating the face off another half naked man. The victim is struggling for his life at a local hospital. The police officer is being called a hero for saving the man with half his face eaten. Sounds like a scene from Zombieland. There was no truth to the rumor that the man that was shot to death had also ordered a nice Chianti and a side of fava beans.
It was a scene as creepy as a Hannibal Lecter movie.
One man was shot to death by Miami police, and another man is fighting for his life after he was attacked, and his face allegedly half eaten, by a naked man on the MacArthur Causeway off ramp Saturday, police said.
The horror began about 2 p.m. when a series of gunshots were heard on the ramp, which is along NE 13th Street, just south of The Miami Herald building.
According to police sources, a road ranger saw a naked man chewing on another man’s face and shouted on his loud speaker for him to back away.Meanwhile, a woman also saw the incident and flagged down a police officer who was in the area.
This is the face of the naked homeless man who was gunned down by a Miami cop while eating the face of another nude man.
Rudy Eugene, 31, appears smug and defiant in an old police mug shot shown on a TV news station Monday night.
The real-life Hannibal Lecter was shot to death Saturday in one of Florida’s most bizarre crimes.
The president of the Miami Fraternal Order of Police, Armando Aguilar believes the entire incident is the fault of a new drug trend that has led to similar incidents. Emergency room doctors at Jackson Memorial Hospital said they too have seen a major increase in cases linked to the street drug called “bath salts” or what is sometimes referred to on the street as “the new LSD”.
Victim of this bizarre, cannibal crime is identified as 65-year-old Ronald Poppo.
