Rudy Eugene Identified as Miami Man Killed After Eating Victim's Face

by at . Comments

The naked man who sparked talk of a zombie apocalypse after eating another man's face on Saturday has been identified as Rudy Eugene, age 31.

Eugene, of North Miami Beach, was shot multiple times and killed following a grisly assault on the Downtown exit ramp of the MacArthur Causeway.

The Miami Herald, whose own surveillance cameras caught the incident on tape, reports that Eugene had been arrested eight times since age 16.

"I wouldn't say he had [a] mental problem but he always felt like people was against him type of attitude," his ex-wife Jenny Ductant told Local 10.

"No one was for him, everyone was against him."

A neighbor said his former home was foreclosed on in 2011, and homeless people in the area said he was frequently spotted wandering around there.

The identity of Eugene's victim, believed to be a homeless man, has not been released. He survived having his face eaten but is in serious condition.

An eyewitness riding his bike on the causeway said he flagged down a cop after coming across Eugene, stark naked, chewing another man's face.

"The guy was tearing him to pieces, so I told him, 'Get off!'" Larry Vega said. "The guy just kept eating the other guy away, like, ripping his skin."

Vega said when the policeman yelled at Eugene to back away, he merely raised his head "with pieces of flesh in his mouth," growled, and resumed chewing.

The officer then shot Eugene once, but Eugene continued to attack the man's face, prompting the officer to shoot again and again until he was dead.

It has been reported, although unconfirmed, that Rudy Eugene was under the influence of cocaine and/or LSD at the time of the attack.

That, or he was an actual zombie and the apocalypse is near.


Soon to be a major Hollywood film. Depicting the false whiney, parody of, "No one was for him, everyone was against him." (so eating the homeless is quite acceptable) Is it any wonder the assailant(drug-crazed, face-eater) was a black man....? What a GAS!!! Where is Jackson and Sharpton defending this fine upstanding black citizen who was wrongfully profiled and murdered by Miami P.D. I mean this is a clear case of racial profiling and murder by racist cops right????


Alrite so the only explanation must be that the dude was a zombie. Idiot


What is up with all the freaking chat speak on here? Are people trying to sound uneducated? There is nothing worse in this world than an adult trying to act cool for the kids. Chat speak is laziness and makes you look ignorant and uneducated. As for the zombie thing.. geez people, grow up. A zombie (Haitian Creole: zonbi; North Mbundu: nzumbe) is an animated corpse brought back to life by mystical means, such as witchcraft. Corpse...hello...dead.... First it is the world is ending on Christmas Eve this year, now it's 2012 it's going to be a zombie takeover? I hope the man survives this attack. I'm sorry the other person lost his life but it is also sad that he was under the influence of drugs. This whole, shoot first, questions later mentality is getting old, quick. It says they yelled at him to stop. I mean why didn't they storm him and pull him off the man? I'm sure that it wasn't just one policeman who responded to the call.


@Mindyourbusiness, you do realize that it doesn't take much to tear a piece of flesh from someone's body with your teeth right? The average person can exert 200 psi when biting. It only takes 100psi to break through skin. After that it would be just like chewing on raw steak or any other raw meat. The human body is deceptively fragile. It only takes about 2 lbs of pressure to break someone's arm and ,it may seem like a lot but it's really not, you can crush someone's skull with only 200lbs of force.


Seriously, are the majority of you people on crack yourselves? Go outside and socialise instead of sitting at your computer getting happy over a man being mutilated, you absolute rejects. And those who believe zombies are real, please get a grip. Just get a grip. did you not read that this drug induces the user with the feeling of super strength plus the amount of adrenaline being produced to physically be able to rip a mans flesh off with their teeth! Of course a few body shots wouldnt have stopped him in that mental state you BUNCH OF ABSOLUTE REMINGTONS. Seriously.


Disgusting !
Whatever drug he was hooked on
or just decided to do.


@ terri_k ive had a coupla white guys b4 and they'll do things sexually with an asian girl that they won't do with a white gal so don't h8 on nonwhite ppl:)
