Naked Cannibal Shot Dead By Police In Miami

This is grisly so you may not want to read it. Also, it might be really triggering for cannibals.

On Saturday, just off Miami’s MacArthur Causeway, Larry Vega was cycling along when saw a naked man eating another naked man’s face. Vega stopped and told him to get off the victim but “the other guy just kept eating the other guy away.” Vega spotted a Miami Police office nearby and waved him over to the scene.

The office ordered the man to stop, but, Vega said, “The guy just stood, his head up like that with pieces of flesh in his mouth. And he growled.” The officer fired once, but the man showed no signs of stopping and the officer eventually killed him. The victim, miraculously, is alive but in critical condition.

The cannibal has been identified as 31-year-old Rudy Eugene (above). Police are speculating the cannibalism was part of a “drug-induced mania” which may have accounted for their nakedness, also.

Miami police officer Armando Aguilar told NBC 6: “Seventy-five to 80 percent of his face was missing, and he was actually swallowing pieces of the man’s face.” Also, some doctor was persuaded into doing some old fashioned fearmongering and went so far as to suggest that this kind of thing can happen when you mix “cocaine and new LSDs.”

As for Vega, he says he’s been “having trouble sleeping,” understandably.

UPDATE: This was possibly a case of bath salts! Bath salts make you eat people! …So, maybe we shouldn’t.

    ZOMBIE! They shot him and he kept eating the guy’s face. ZOMBIE.

    • Jennifer Wright

      My thought exactly! This is how every zombie movie starts!

  • Jeremy

    I believe the politically correct phrase is “person consumption”, not cannibalism.

    You just lost a reader.

    • Angee

      I’m sure the writers will be losing sleep over that.

      Also, this man has been called various things, including ‘zombie’, so I suspect ‘politically correct’ is out the window at this point…

      Wow. You must be a hoot at dates “its not tomato SOUP its tomato BISQUE! You just lost a date.”

    • Jeremy

      You guys are lovely.

      (There was sarcasm in that sentence just like my original comment, I usually call cannibals “Next Level Foodies”)

    My girlfriend (aka zombie believer) is on full alert right now. She’s currently reviewing all the things NOT to do from all the zombie movies she watches. I, on the other hand plan to become a zombie right away. Looking for someone to eat every day OR running away, scared shitless all day…the simpler life for me.

    • Amy

      I responded exactly like your gf. “ZOMBIE ATTACK!”

      It would be so much easier to just become a zombie right from the get-go; no running away or hiding or having to kill your zombie family… just. being. a. zombie.

  • MM

    WTF are “new LSDs”?

  • Rachy

    Always double tap. Always.

  • Kiki

    Sounds like PCP.

  • JK

    This IS what zombies will be… when the world goes to shit there’s gonna be way more of this drug-induced madness… not to mention when all those addicted to presciption drugs (prescribed or not) can’t get them anymore… run for the hills folks!! Eek.

    Dude, in a weird way where I hope I won’t be a horrible person for saying this, do you think he’s kinda glad he’s dead? I mean, imagine coming down off your high and knowing that YOU ATE ANOTHER MAN’S FACE WHILE YOU WERE HIGH ON BATH SALTS. Honestly, I just don’t think I would have a reason for living after that.

    New LSDs are a dangerous mixture of amphetamines and household cleaners.

    There is a whole PSA about it available on youtube:
