Miami Face Eater’s NYC Connection, Girlfriend Speaks Out (he was drugged or Voodoo Cursed?)
MIAMI, FL -
The girlfriend of the Miami flesh-eating attacker said he must have been drugged or under the spell of a voodoo curse to carry out such a savage attack, The Miami Herald reported Thursday.
Rudy Eugene’s on-again, off-again girlfriend, who did not wish to be named, told the newspaper that the 31-year-old was a sweet and well-mannered person who had never been violent around her.
Eugene was reportedly a 1964 honors graduate of New York’s prestigious Stuyvesant HS.
The woman admitted Eugene was a regular marijuana user, she denied that he took stronger recreational drugs, saying he would not even take over-the-counter medication for minor aches and pains.
Police are investigating whether Eugene was under the influence of a potent new form of the powerful hallucinogen LSD (sic – not the same thing), known as “bath salts,” when he seemingly picked 65-year-old homeless man Ronald Poppo at random and launched a vicious 18-minute attack that left Poppo extremely disfigured and fighting for his life.
Eugene’s girlfriend told the newspaper she believes he either ingested drugs unknowingly or someone had put a voodoo curse on the Haitian descendent.
