CORAL GABLES (LALATE) – The man eating face attacker in Miami exhibited symptoms of LSD Bath Salts consumption, doctors now tell news. The “Zombie Attacker in Miami” aka the “Miami Cannibal” or “Causeway Cannibal” is leaving investigators perplexed. But doctors tell news that the Miami weekend attack is not unique. They claim that bath salts prompted crime attacks earlier this year in Miami as well.
In update to an earlier news report today, doctors now tell news that the face-eating man exhibit familiar symptoms. The Causeway Cannibal digested eighty percent of another man’s face, in broad daylight, last weekend. But now analysts are telling news that the “Zombie of Miami” is not a unique story for residents.
What do you do when you see two men running across a road in Miami unclothed, in a violent attack? Witnesses tell news they first called police. But soon thereafter, they saw something that left them speechless.
One of two men, Rudy Eugene, grabbed the other man, a homeless individual, and began to devour his face. And when witnesses attempted to save the homeless man, Eugene attempted to attack the witnesses as well.
Witnesses were left without words. One shouted at Eugene to stop. But Rudy Eugene heard the shouting, turned toward the witness, and growled. Eugene then proceeded to eat, digest, upwards of eighty percent of the other man’s face, alive.
And while the story sounds shocking, doctors are telling news that they have been treating other persons with similar symptoms in recent months.
When police responded to Eugene, they fired one shot at him. But the bullet reportedly didn’t kill “zombie like” Eugene. Responding officers tell news that shooting Eugene was like shooting an attacking bear; it took several gun shots to finally kill Eugene.
The story, however, took a far different turn after Miami Fraternal Order of Police, Armando Aguilar, began speaking to news. He told CBS that the Cannibal attack in Miami last weekend was not the first time something like this has happened in Miami or South Beach.
He said that he has seen at least four cases where people consume an illegal substance and then go into a psychosis. The person each time becomes so violent that they exhibit “super-human strength” like the Incredible Hulk, so claims Aguilar. And while not every user of bath salts become a cannibal, Aguilar claims that the individuals routinely used their jaws as “weapons” against other men after consuming the salts.
Aguilar tells news that attackers have been “extremely strong, I took care of a 150 pound individual who you would have thought he was 250 pounds,â€ť told CBS. â€śIt took six security officers to restrain the individual.
But what is causing Miami residents to become, as Aguilar calls them, Zombie like individuals? Emergency room Doctor Paul Adams says that the culprit is a “new LSD … commonly called bath salts”. He claims that he first saw an “increase” use of the LSD substance during the Ultra Fest 2012. Adams claims that, after digesting the bath salts, your body temperature gets so hot that you no longer have logic, you donâ€™t feel pain, and your body speeds.
Even stranger, investigators tell news that users of bath salts have previously made a run for the Causeway. Eugene chased his victim onto the MacArthur Causeway. That too is not unique, says Dr. Adams. â€śEarlier last year, we probably saw our first death from bath salts where people were running on the MacArthur Causeway, under the MacArthur Causeway being chased by the police and then all of the sudden just collapsing.â€ť
