The world’s buzzing after a drugged-up homeless man brutally attacked another homeless man in Miami. In case you haven’t heard, the attacker was found eating the other man’s face just like a zombie. We at TaraNormal.com like to take care of our readers, so here’s all of the news you need about this bats*** insane incident all in one place.
Here’s a report of the murder from CNN.com:
Rudy Eugene, 31, walking along the sidewalk and then stopping in a shaded area created by the tramway bridge. He apparently attacks the victim, dragging him out from the shade, stripping the victim’s clothes off and then beating him as the victim kicks his legs in an apparent attempt to fight back.
The attacker then spends several minutes crouched over the victim, including when a bicyclist rolls by on the sidewalk and a white sedan rolls very slowly past the scene.
Police said at least five of those passers-by called to the report the incident, according to the Miami Herald report accompanying the video.
When a patrol car arrives, the officer appears to draw his gun quickly, but the actual shooting is blocked by the tramway overpass.
The man who had his face chewed off Saturday afternoon is reportedly a homeless 65-year-old man named Ronald Poppo.

What the Hell Was This Guy On?
Police reports are claiming the ‘zombie attacker’ was high on bath salts. This is the name given to a new dangerous form of LSD that is obviously popular among insane and dangerous people.
Here’s an article on Bath Salts:
According to a CDC report of bath salt abusers in Michigan, users not only experience psychological side effects — there were physical ones too. In fact, 91 percent of users had neurological damage, while 77 percent experienced cardiovascular damage and 49 percent had psychological difficulties associated with the drug. Those difficulties could be severe: 37 percent of the people who suffered mental health problems reported attempting suicide or having suicidal thoughts, related to bath salts.
