Miami Cannibal Attack: Rudy Eugene High on Bath Salts or LSD

The cannibal attack in Miami, in which a naked man attacked another naked homeless man and ate his face off, is being blamed on bath salts. Detectives believe the attacker, identified as Rudy Eugene, had been high on bath salts, which is a general aromatherapy product used in baths. But when the bath salts are inhaled or injected, a person may become really high on the substance, driving them to a high similar to "cocaine psychosis".

The cannibal attack in Miami, in which a naked man attacked another naked homeless man and ate his face off, is being blamed on bath salts. Detectives believe the attacker, identified as Rudy Eugene, had been high on bath salts.


The attack happened off a highway in Miami at 2 p.m. where the naked human zombie was eventually shot by police twelve times after eating a homeless man's face despite orders from a nearby cop to stop the attack.


Witness Larry Vega told WSVN: "The guy was, like, tearing him to pieces with his mouth, so I told him, 'Get off!' The guy just kept eating the other guy away, like, ripping his skin." Vega got hold of a police officer who also ordered Eugene to get off the man, but he continued to tear his skin apart.


Eugene, 31, reportedly growled at police and refused to stop his violent attack. According to The New York Daily News, Eugene continued "chomping on the man's ears, nose and cheeks -- and even tried to gouge out his eyeballs."


The victim of the attack is reportedly hospitalized and remains in a critical condition. His face was so bloody and horrific that it could not be recognized.


Officials also believe that Eugene carried out the grisly attack after he was high on LSD. Officials say he portrays symptoms of "excited delirium" - a syndrome that turns drug users into raging "incredible Hulks".  "I'm going by similarities in other cases of excited delirium I've researched in the last couple of days," said Aguilar, president for the Fraternal Order of Police.
