Ronald Poppo Identified as "Miami Zombie" Victim; New Video Shows Uncensored Rudy Eugene Attack

by at . Comments

Ronald Poppo, 65, has been identified as the victim of "Miami Zombie" Rudy Eugene, with a new video detailing the gruesomeness of the attack.

Eugene, 31, was shot and killed by police after passersby saw him eating Poppo's face in a story that has triggered talk of a zombie apocalypse.

Poppo, who reports say was homeless for nearly four decades before the grisly incident, is in serious condition, having somehow survived it.

Be forewarned: The video below is uncensored and graphic.

The video depicts Rudy Eugene, who was naked, straddling, punching, and ripping off Poppo’s clothing in the completely unprovoked assault.

Poppo, who was was sleeping on the causeway where this took place, was in the wrong place at the wrong time, and had his face eaten off.

Perhaps most astonishingly, a number of people drive by, including one who slows down and CLEARLY notices at the 8:20 mark, yet do nothing.

Finally, a bicyclist sees and alerts police around 16:30. Within two minutes of that, Eugene was shot dead and Poppo's life was saved.

When officers yelled at Eugene to stop and he merely ignored their cries and continued feasting, they shot him dead in a hail of bullets.

Also nicknamed the Miami cannibal, Eugene's horrific behavior is said to have been caused by psychosis resulting bath salts, either ingested or injected.

To me, all of this is WAY SCARIER than any horror movie!!! And, believe me...I've been a major fan of horror movies ever since I was a kid. However, all of this horrifying real-life drama that's going on in Miami is no laughing matter!!! YIKES!!!!!

You don't have to "die and come back to life" to be considered a zombie. What about a human rabies type of virus that can be spread through bites, JUST LIKE IN ANIMALS. I'm sorry, I haven't personally heard of anyone being on drugs and just eating a man's face. I have heard if cannibals in other countries, but they only eat little bits of flesh at a time, and they flesh is dead, not coming off an alive human skull. I don't care what anyone says, or if he was indeed on drugs, a "zombie outbreak" can happen, and I believe someday it will. Whether I'm here or not. Think outside the box, people. Just because the media says it's bath salts doesn't mean it was drugs...maybe they're trying to cover something up??

to anyone that doesn't know what "bath salts" are:this is a serious drug that has DEVASTATED the central Maine area. it is no joke. we are not speaking of regular bath salts that you buy @ the drug store. this is just its name. it is a synthetic psychosis-inducing drug that makes people absolutely crazy. do any google search for bangor, maine and bath salts and you will see all the stories.

This Bath Salt thing is not a joke. Over the counter- at any store and it will screw your Brain up worse than any drug around. I've heard of this and it is the worst of the worst.

contrary to what some people believe, you don't have to be dead to be a zombie. Zombie traits: They cant speak only moan or growl, inhumanly strong, no sense of pain or mercy, insatiable hunger for human flesh and brains. they just eat whatever flesh they happen to grab. this is exactly what is described in this incident. this is a zombie attack if I've ever seen one. and if "Bath Salts" turn people into zombies then i believe we have the right to kill anyone on bath salts.

Oh, I also forgot, if it is drugs (which this does make me believe it was) you can get shot,stabbed, or anything for that matter and not even feel. So I do believe he was on drugs and that is why he didn't really show pain when he was shot several times.

Some people don't realize that when you mix some drugs, or you just don't know how to handle them you are capable of anything. Including eating another mans face off. Not to say this was the case in this event though, the don't even know if he was on drugs yet he could very well just be crazy. But I read about the list of other things happening in the past week, people always don't realize alot of things like that (such as people biting people,rashes, ect.) happen all the time, but don't end up on the news like cnn and stuff..sounds crazy but it is true. In Georgia, last year a man ate his wifes ear off but you don't hear about these things happening because they only end up on local news. So no, no zombies are coming. It is amazing how some people are actually believing in this zombie crap!

Bath salts, yeah we'll just go with that.
