"Face-chewing" naked man sparks zombie scare
Rudy Eugene came to national attention when he was caught chewing on the face of Ronald Poppo, before being shot and killed by police. The bizarre crime sparked dubious speculation that he was a zombie. However, an autopsy showed there was no human flesh in Eugene's stomach. Police initially blamed Eugene's mental state on an LSD-like drug called "bath salts."
He was a good kid," Eugene's mother told CBS Miami. "He gave me a nice card on Mother's Day. Everyone says he was a zombie. He was no zombie. That was my son."
