Cannibal in Miami
Police now believe that Rudy Eugene, the so-called Miami Zombie, was not only naked, but was also carrying his bible, when he nearly beat a homeless man to death and chewed off three-quarters of his face.
First came Rudy Eugene’s attack on Ronald Poppo on the MacArthur Causeway in Miami. Then in Texas a mother is accused of killing her newborn, eating part of his brain and biting off three of his toes.
As Ronald Poppo, the homeless victim in the brutal MacArthur Causeway cannibal-style attack, continues to fight for his life at Jackson Memorial Hospital, an aspiring young photographer is remembering how Poppo looked before he was viciously mauled.
In the week since the brutal face-mauling attack along the MacArthur Causeway in Miami, friends and family of the accused attacker, 31-year-old Rudy Eugene, have said he was a good guy looking to get his life on track.
High-powered Los Angeles attorney Gloria Allred is now connected to Miami’s infamous “Causeway Cannibal” case.
Police released three 911 calls from people on the MacArthur Causeway who witnessed a cannibalistic attack.
Before 65-year-old Ronald Poppo lost his face in a cannibalistic attack, he had completely lost touch with his family.
The daughter of Causeway Cannibal victim Ronald Poppo said she didn’t know her father and that she thought he was dead long before the horrific attack by Rudy Eugene last Saturday.
