It wasn't too long ago that we were bracing for an impending zombie apocalypse, stocking our underground bunkers with garlic and sh*t, and
steering clear passing the bath salts. The hysteria has since died down, but the catalyst of this whole thing--the Miami face-eating incident--continues to grow wackier and wackier.
A few weeks ago, we learned that the previously suspected bath salts were not present in attacker Rudy Eugene's system. Now, following an extensive investigative report, the Miami Herald has learned that Eugene had actually met victim Ronald Poppo prior to snacking on his face. In fact, a friend recounts how he and Eugene had helped him while serving the homeless.
Poppo and Eugene had crossed paths before. A few years ago, Christian said he and Eugene were doing community work feeding the homeless, and the two of them met Poppo
“Poppo seemed like a nice and kind man,” said Christian, 34. “I remember when we gave him food.’’
The highly impressive piece of reporting delves deeply into Eugene's oft-troubled personal life, and implicitly suggests that religion, Vodou, or some crazed demonic possession had something to do with the attack. Whatever the case may be, looks like there's an off chance we've got a zombie hitman operation on our hands. Danger ain't dead just yet.
