Your Zombie News / End Times Update

Someone created a ‘zombie infection’ map, based on some of the locations of a series of weird events listed the other day here, including the Miami zombie / cannibal attack. Here’s some more news about the Miami attacker and his victim:

The Miami Cannibal Attacker and his victim — Photo: Rudy Eugene, 31, left, who police shot and killed as he ate the face of Ronald Poppo, 65, right, during a horrific attack in the shadow of the Miami Herald’s headquarters on Saturday, May 26, 2012. (AP Photo/Miami-Dade Police Dept.) 

The attack on Poppo lasted 18 agonizing minutes. Vega said the officer repeatedly ordered the attacker to get off. Eugene just picked his head up and growled at the officer before continuing to maul his victim, Vega said. The officer shot Eugene, but he just kept chewing, Vega said. The officer fired again, killing Eugene. [...] “He had his face eaten down to his goatee. The forehead was just bone. No nose, no mouth,” said Sgt. Armando Aguilar, president of the Miami Fraternal Order of Police. — Associated Press

Police are working under the theory that Eugene was under some kind of drug-induced psychosis, but at this point, it’s just a theory. Poppo, who has a long record of homelessness and petty crime in Miami-Dade county, has tubes in his body and cannot speak. — CBS Miami

Eugene’s girlfriend blames voodoo — She believes Eugene was drugged unknowingly. The only other explanation, she said, was supernatural — that someone put a voodoo curse on him. The girlfriend, who unlike Eugene is not Haitian, said she has never believed in voodoo, until now. “I don’t know how else to explain this,” she said. — Tampa Bay Times

Containers of ‘bath salts,’ a dangerous synthetic drug sold under names like ‘Ivory Wave’ and ‘Vanilla Sky.’You don’t need the Tyrant Virus to turn you into a zombie — just ‘bath salts’ — Bath salts, also known by street names like “Ivory Wave,” “Vanilla Sky,” “Bliss,” and “Purple Rain”, made headlines last year after a rush of emergency room visits, thousands of calls to poison centers and several deaths. The man-made, synthetic drug is made from amphetamine-like chemicals and causes a unique combination of effects on the brain. [...]Sellers were able to sell the drug legally since its emergence in 2009 by marketing the substance as either bath salts or “plant food” or “insect repellant,” and stipulating “not for human consumption” on the label. — NY Daily News

Unbelievably, a drugmaker is pushing a sale on ‘Bath Salts’ after the Miami Cannibal attack – AM-HI-CO, one of the largest distributors of so-called synthetic drugs in the U.S, is offering 15 percent off all bath salts. “All our Bath Salts Powder Blends fans check out our Promo page! We have prepared a little surprise for all of you! Have a great day,” the company wrote on its Facebook page. — International Business Times
