On Sunday we reported a story about a naked man who was shot to death while eating the face off another man in Miami, now the name of that crazed killer has been revealed. The flesh eating cannibal was 31-year-old Rudy Eugene.
Even before Sunday’s crazed attack that ultimately led to his death by gunfire Rudy had a criminal record. According to the Miami Herald he had previously been arrested for a battery charge when he was 16, and was then arrested seven other times between 2004 and 2009. Rudy’s charges were mostly petty, for example vending near a school, trespassing, and marijuana-related offenses. However a woman he was married to for one year also claims he became extremely violent towards her.
Rudy’s ex-wife who filed for divorce in 2007 told local affiliate WPLG:
“I wouldn’t say he had mental problem, but he always felt like people was against him. No one was for him, everyone was against him.”
Eventually Rudy lost his home in foreclosure but according to the new tenants he would show up uninvited looking for mail.
Police believe that Rudy attacked his victim because he was having a bout of cocaine psychosis or was suffering from an overdose of “bath salts,” a synethic drug police say is being used as a new form of LSD.
In the meantime Miami police are asking that any potential witnesses who have not yet stepped forward regarding the incident to call the local police station at 305-603-6350 to report any further details about the attack to investigators.
