This story happened a few weeks back but I didn't get a chance to include it until now:
31-year-old Rudy Eugene of Miami, FL was shot and killed as he attacked a 65-year-old homeless man in the middle of the street. Eugene was completely naked and apparently under the influence of what some believe was bath salts, a semi-legal stimulant often sold in convenience gas stations and adult stores. Eugene ate up to 75% of the man's face off. A policeman who witnessed the attack noted that Eugene was chewing and swallowing the flesh as he ate it.
The victim is still hospitalized. Eugene was shot and killed by a policeman responding to the incident. His girlfriend later emerged to tell the public that she always felt safe with him and that he was a dedicated, religious man. She admits to having seen him smoke marijuana once at a party and Eugene has a record of marijuana-related charges.
