Miami Cannibal Was High On Pot, Not Bath Salts

June 27, 2012

So called Miami Cannibal, Rudy Eugene, had only marijuana in his system, not the illicit drug known as "bath salts" when he chewed the face off of Ronald Poppo. Previously, I posted one crime scene photo here. It's hard to imagine someone so crazy as to do what Eugene did. But unless it was some form of seriously treated Pot, I guess he is. That, or it was one hell of a case of the munchies. Geez.

A Miami man shot dead by police as he chewed the face off a homeless person only had marijuana in his system, a coroner has found.

Toxicology results found no alcohol, prescription drugs or adulterants often mixed with street drugs in his body.

An outside forensic toxicology lab also looked at the results and came up negative for bath salts, synthetic marijuana and LSD.

"Within the limits of current technology by both laboratories, marijuana is the only drug identified in the body of Mr Rudy Eugene," the Miami medical examiner's office said in a statement.

Eugene was shot and killed by a police officer after he ignored warnings to stop eating Mr Poppo's face.
