Miami Naked Zombie Cannibal Attack
It's always Florida. You'd be seriously hard pressed to find a state with more bizarre crime stories than Florida. From some of the worst parents of 2012 (so far), to the following story which coincidentally happened right after this viral video about a fictitious Shia LaBeouf attacking and eating people hit the web. It was almost like an omen that pre-empted a slew of Bath Salts related crimes all over the country in the weeks to come.
This was the first of 2012 and the most grizzly.
In Miami, Florida, on Saturday May 26th 2012, 31-year old Rudy Eugene ripped off his clothes and began attacking a homeless man who didn't even look that delicious in broad daylight. By tearing away at the homeless man's face with his teeth. Apparently Eugene was on the drug commonly known as "Bath Salts", which in recent years has caused some of the most uniquely insane and bizarre crimes to hit the news.
The victim, Ronald Poppo (age 65), was just an innocent in the way of Eugene's Bath Salts filled rage.
Bath salts are described as synthetic cocaine which, according to doctors, feels like Meth, Cocaine and PCP combined. The drug is said to cause body temperature to rise to such a degree that people rip off their clothes and become extremely aggressive, most of the time in a stage of "extreme delirium". People have been known to use their jaws for violence and "become extremely strong".
When the surveillance footage of the attack was released, it showed Eugene jumping onto the homeless man, who was sleeping at the time, stripping him of his own clothes (as Eugene was already naked), then starting to eat the homeless man's face off.
One of the most disturbing things about the attack is not only how long it took (about 20 minutes of this kind of torture), a car slowed down to look at what they were seeing then drove off and probably, understandably, started boarding up their windows and conserving ammo for the on-coming zombie apocalypse.
A media frenzy followed during which a lot of popular websites took the opportunity to declare the zombie apocalypse, even though this clearly proves that we can definitely handle it when it comes.
These gruesome pictures which you really, really should not look at if you have a weak stomach or while eating or at all if you hate even the slightest amount of blood show that Eugene at the man's face off all the way down to his beard. The man's face, nose, one eye, forehead and mouth are missing.
Poppo unfortunately lived throughout this entire ordeal and is currently in critical condition.

Man Kills Prostitutes, Old Rich Guys For FoodHe exclusively killed wealthy older men and young prostitutes.
Yoo Young-chul, a South Korean gentleman, was a firm believer in the philosophy that "Women shouldn't be sluts, and the rich should know what they've done..." which were his motives for killing and eating people.
Like a lot of people on this list, he had a history of mutilating animals.
He murdered 21 people between 2003 and 2004. Yoo burned three of them and mutilated the rest, eating some of their livers raw.
He killed most of his victims with a hammer, which seems to be a pattern in these kinds of crimes. The real reason he seemed to gravitate towards killing prostitutes, though, was that one dumped him after he tried to have a romantic relationship with her.
He pretty much stuck to them from there on out until he was finally caught in July of 2004.
Found out about this guy on a little site called Murderpedia. Yes, that's right. Murderpedia.
Husband, Father Keeps Fridge of Horrors in His Home
Matej Curko was not a good person. He had a wife and kids, sure, but he also managed to not only become a cannibal, but he used the internet to lure in his victims. This happened in Slovakia, though, which is most likely why Chris Hansen never caught him.
Over the internet, he would trick his victims into meeting with him, then he would (as some people on this list inexplicably do) convince them to a suicide and cannibalism pact or he would just kidnap, kill then eat them.
He kept an extensive "Fridge of Horrors" that included the bodies of two women who had disappeared the previous year.
During a sting operation that was (sadly) not televised, an agent was made to meet up with him for some suicide and food and when he pulled out a gun and started shooting at officers, the worst snipers in the world shot him five times and he still lived.
He was apprehended then died later that day in the hospital.
He was later linked to the disappearance of 30 Italian women.
His wife, who is inexplicably cute, stood by him and denied his crimes up to the very end (at which point she still denied them).
Metal-Toothed Man Kills Women, Serves Their Meat At PartiesThis guy not only killed 7 women, but he served the meat to his friends, as well-cooked ethnic cuisine, at parties he would throw.
Yes, that's right, this guy had FRIENDS. He also lives in Kazakhstan. His friends didn't know they were eating "long pig".
He boasted has having killed 500 to 100 women, but these guys pretty much always do. He prided himself on trying to rid the world of prostitutes -- a convenient ulterior motive for cannibals.
He also had his teeth replaced with metal fangs, which makes this guy the closest thing to a Bond villain I have ever even heard about in real life.
He was eventually caught when some drunk friends of his found a human head and intestines inside his fridge. So word to the wise: always raid your friends' fridges. It's for justice.
After 10 years of rehabilitation, he was released and according to this Cracked list is still at large.
Deformed Man Kills Young Girls, Drinks Blood, Sent Bone Powder to FamiliesIn what is one of the most heartless, horrible crimes ever to have been performed, Tsutomu Miyazaki, known as "The Otaku Murderer" (Otaku meaning a love of anime and general Japanese culture, but in this case just someone obsessed with young girls) or "The Little Girl Murderer" or "Dracula", killed four little girls between the ages of 4 and 7.
He drank their blood and had sex with their dead bodies. The man's premature birth left him with deformed hands, which were fused directly to his wrists, this supposedly led him to live in ai world of fantasy and comic books, which somehow then led to him turning to child pornography for thrills.
He was apparently influenced by the Guinea Pig series of horror films, one of which was used to model one of his murders.
Much like Albert Fish, he would send letters to his victims families often detailing exactly what he did to them and often included the burned ashes of the children's bones.
The way he was finally caught is amazing because while he was trying to sexually assault a young girl with a zoom lens he was caught by her father, who went to town on the guy until Miyazaki ran away.
Miyazaki eventually came back for his car, which he had misparked, and was caught by police. His father committed suicide. Miyazaki was hanged in June of 2008.
