We still can't get over how sickeningly tragic this whole thing is.

And with more and more coming out, it only gets worse.

We reported earlier on Rudy Eugene, the Miami man who was shot dead by police when he discovered naked and eating the face off of another person, and sadly, we now know the victim to be 65-year-old Ronald Poppo, a homeless man who is now fighting for his life at Jackson Memorial Hospital with nothing but his lips, beard, and chin left.

More bizarre, however, is the information slowly coming out about the 31-year-old perpetrator, a majority of which is from his former classmates at North Miami Beach High School, who knew him as an "easy-going" young man who stayed out of trouble until he later began experimenting with drugs.

Victoria Forte explains:

“No, that's not him. Drugs did this to him. Drugs took over a person we knew as a beautiful person."

And Cassandra Metayer elaborates:

“This type of behavior is very unexpected. He was a good person, a true friend. He was a nice, outgoing ready-to-help-anybody kind of guy. I’m not just saying that; he really was that person."

As previously explained, the top hypothesis from baffled authorities at this point is that Eugene was using the synthetic drug "bath salts," which are generally comprised of chemicals called mephedrone and MDPV and have apparently caused violent behavior in others, but obviously, nothing close to the degree of cannibalism.

Jim Hall, director of Nova Southeastern University's Center for the Study and Prevention of Substance Abuse, explains:

"A key issue is that nobody ever knows what's in them. They can be something mild one week, something very strong the next week."

So, so, so scary.

We sincerely hope that anyone messing around with these drugs or thinking about it will seriously re-consider in light of this whole mess. Not that should it take something to this degree to make people realize how badly this shiz can ruin your life!

Obviously, there are still many questions unanswered, but it's more than clear that whatever this man was taking turned him from a kind, well-liked individual into a real-life monster.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Poppo as he fights for his life, and to all of those affected by this horrific travesty.

    Remember, children, it's OK for two men to suck face, as long as they don't start eating.
