A few weeks ago on contributeone we posted about krokodil, the deadliest drug in the world that causes your skin to rot away. Today we have a really bizarre story and the only real way to sum it up is a scene from a horror movie.
So what went down exactly?
In Miami, 31 year old Ruby Eugene was found naked attacking 65 year old Ronald Poppo. Witnesses saw Eugene EATING Poppo’s face. Eugene was still vicously attacking and eating Poppo’s face when police officers came. The officer at the scene was ordering Eugene to stop but Eugene responded by lifting his head up with Poppo’s flesh in his mouth and growling. When Eugene failed to respond, the officer at the scene fired several more times until Eugene finally dropped dead. Witnesses report that up to six shots were fired after the initial shot. Eugene was pronounced dead at the scene and Poppo is now in severe condition with 75% of his face chewed off.
Why did this happen?
No one knows exactly what provoked the attack but it is believed that Eugene was under the influence of drugs. Authorities say that drug use has been on the rise since the end of Ultra Fest in March. Ultra fest is one of the biggest Electronic Dance Music (EDM) Festivals in the world. It’s unfortunate that a subculture of EDM is drug use and really makes the rest of EDM fans look bad. This whole case is unfortunate while there is going to be an autopsy and toxicology report, no one will no one will ever know exactly what caused Eugene to snap while under the influence of drugs to be able to tear off and eat someone’s face off like a zombie. This is another case that drugs have caused someone to do horrible things. I hope anyone who is considering doing drugs changes their mind after reading this and Krokodil.
Poppo is currently under critical condition and he’ll have to live with the severe damage on his face every day for the rest of his life. Even with cosmetic surgery, if 75% of your face is gone, it’s going to be hard to fix things. We at contribute one hope for the best for both Eugene and Poppo’s families and hope Poppo makes a successful recovery.
