It’s rare that we ever cover “real life” news stories here on Dread Central, but the tale of the Miami Zombie is just too scary and insane to ignore. Read on for the unbelievable latest on this horrific event.
CNN recently caught up with Larry Vega, witness to the attack on Miami’s MacArthur Causeway, and the full details he gave them are sure to send a chill down your spine.
“The guy was like tearing him to pieces with his mouth, so I told him, ‘Get off!'” Vega told CNN affiliate WSVN. “You know, it’s like the guy just kept eating the other guy away, like ripping his skin. It was just a blob of blood. You couldn’t really see; it was just blood all over the place.”
“When the officer approached him, told him to stop, pointed a gun at him, he turned around and growled like a wild animal and kept eating at the man’s face,” Fraternal Order of Police President Armando Aguilar told CNN affiliate WPLG.
Augilar said he suspects the attacker, identified as 31-year-old Rudy Eugene (pictured right), was under the influence of “bath salts.” Four other drug use instances in Miami-Dade bear resemblances to Saturday’s attack, he told WPLG. Apparently this new form of LSD causes the user to disrobe and become extremely violent.
Dr. Paul Adams, an emergency room physician at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, told CNN affiliate WBFS that the drug makes users delirious. They exhibit elevated temperatures and extreme physical strength, Adams said.
“I took care of a 150-pound individual who you would have thought he was 250 pounds,” WBFS quoted Adams as saying. “It took six security officers to restrain the individual.”
So there you have it, kids. A frightening and tragic tale. Should the popularity of this drug soar to the heights that crack did, this could be the beginning of the end. Check out CNN’s report below.
