This is grisly so you may not want to read it.
On Saturday, just off Miami’s MacArthur Causeway, Larry Vega was cycling along when saw a naked man eating another naked man’s face. Vega stopped and told him to get off the victim but “the other guy just kept eating the other guy away.” Vega spotted a Miami Police office nearby and waved him over to the scene.
The officer ordered the man to stop, but, Vega said, “The guy just stood, his head up like that with pieces of flesh in his mouth. And he growled.” The officer fired once, but the man showed no signs of stopping and the officer eventually killed him. The victim, miraculously, is alive but in critical condition.
Miami police officer Armando Aguilar told NBC 6: “Seventy-five to 80 percent of his face was missing, and he was actually swallowing pieces of the man’s face.”
The cannibal has been identified as 31-year-old Rudy Eugene, 31 is suspected to have been high on a drug known as “bath salts.” The dangerous drug, which is banned in many states, but so far has no specific federal ban, is available on the street and also at many tobacco and drug paraphernalia shops under names like Vanilla Sky, Ivory Wave, White China, Dynamite and Cloud 9.
Bath salts — a toxic cocktail of the amphetamines, Methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV), mephedrone, and pyrovalerone. The Drug Enforcement Agency groups bath salts with mescaline and ephedrine, while dealers market the drug as a replacement for cocaine or a synthetic form of the hallucinogen LSD, according to CNN.
