Identity Of Miami’s Naked Face-Eater Revealed

In what is probably one of 2012’s most obscurely horrific news stories, the identity of the man who was shot dead by police because he was viciously eating another man’s face, has been revealed. Police have said that the man they shot was 31-year-old Rudy Eugene.

The utterly disturbing incident of violent cannibalism occurred last Saturday when an unassuming cyclist riding on the MacArthur Causeway in Miami, Florida saw something that will probably end up scarring him for life. He spotted a completely naked guy tearing skin and flesh from another man’s face with his teeth. According to Hypervocal, the attacker, who we now know to be Rudy Eugene, growled at the cyclist, whilst covered in the victim’s blood and with pieces of his flesh hanging from his mouth.

The video footage of the attack and of Eugene’s subsequent shooting by the police does not really show very much, but I suggest that you only look at the pictures if you have a very strong stomach. Warning, these pictures are definitely not suitable for anyone who is squeamish!! NSFL & NSFW!!

A few other witnesses also saw this distressing occurrence and managed to signal to passing police officers, who shot at the attacker. According to eye witness reports, he continued chewing on the human flesh in his mouth even after he had been gunned down.

Police believe that the victim may have been a homeless man and he is yet to be identified. He was so savagely attacked that his nose has been torn from his face, his eye gouged out and pretty much the majority of the flesh around his face, apart from the chin area, was torn off. He is currently in critical condition and fighting for his life in hospital.

Rudy Eugene, the man responsible for the barbaric attack, was a divorcee who had 7 arrests on his criminal record. The charges against him included misdemeanor battery, trespassing and several arrests for marijuana. Although all the charges came in a five year span that suggest he was descending into a criminal lifestyle, the kind of offenses that Eugene was arrested for hardly scream out – ‘I’m going to wake up one day thinking I’m a fricking zombie and try to EAT SOMEONES FACE!!!’

Detectives investigating the brutal assault believe that Eugene may have been suffering from cocaine psychosis which causes body temperatures to increase dramatically and has the sufferer in a craze. They also suspect that he may have consumed a synthetic amphetamine-like drug called ‘bath salts’ which can be legally bought online.

Jeez, this is incredible and I thought the story about Japanese chef Mao Sugiyama who had his penis, testicles and scrotum removed, cooked it up and served it to diners at a Tokyo banquet, was about as gross as it could get. But at least he chose to have people cannibalize themselves with his appendages and charged them $250 for the pleasure.

    That second picture is abhorrent and should not be posted out of respect for the victim. Shame on you KHOW.

      Relax mate, this was on most of the big news sites

       Relax dude, It’s on everywhere now

    Professional groupie for a ‘couple’ of awesome bands? So ”
    A groupie is a person who seeks emotional and sexual intimacy with a musician or other celebrity or public figure. “Groupie” is derived from group in reference to a musical group,[1] but the word is also used in a more general sense, especially in casual conversation. The word “groupie” is commonplace, a derisive term used to describe a particular kind of female fan assumed to be more interested in sex with rock stars than in their music”

    So, basically, when you’re not writing, you’re sexually satisfying band-members who will never love/respect you, because you are, in fact, a ‘groupie’.

    Have fun with that, and stick to your obvious dayjob.

       His chin/mouth is in the blue/white medical piece.  You can see his facial hair on his jaw & chin  just below the blue strap.  In the article it said that his chin area was the only place that wasn’t torn apart.  If that guides you any.

    This should be posted on every place they sell this stuff, and put together with other cases in education videos to show children who try to get high. Buyers beware.

    This is the most amazing and most inhuman story I have ever heared! I can not believe it! Otto from Hungary

  • Eduardo Shiroma

    This story is unbelievable. I think the picture of the victim shown here is false, and probably based on his mugshot shown in some news. If the photo is real, it’s really sad.

    • Theluckyed00791

      your an idiot

      • Eduardo Shiroma

        You know me? I honestly don’t understand your comment. Why do you think I’m an idiot? :-/

      • Cburg_guy


        an idiot doesn’t know the difference between you’re (you are) and your. It’s possible that Mr. Shiroma has not seen the news lately… that along with all the doctored photos on the internet, couldn’t he just be wishing it hadn’t happened? 

        So take YOUR opinion and shove it “Lucky”. You douchenozzle.
