Bad things really do happen to good people. It's just a sad fact of life.
Rudy Eugene, a man who is more famously known as the Miami "Cannibal" or "Zombie", wasn't always interested in eating human flesh. In fact, he was very spiritual and attended bible study just TWO DAYS before stripping down and viscously attacking Ronald Edward Poppo.
His friends described him as a devout Christian who would frequently send inspirational religious messages through texts or social networking sites.
Unfortunately, his faith couldn't stop whatever powerful drug took over his mind once it entered his system and Poppo is now fighting for his life as a result.
We don't know for sure yet, but it sounds like Eugene was a victim of a bad drug or perhaps ultimately, a bad decision. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Mr. Poppo, the man who will have to live with the consequences of Eugene's actions, but our hearts also feel for the family of the attacker as well.
Nobody wants to see their friend or family member turn into that kind of monster.
In other related weird news, an unnamed girlfriend of Eugene's has hired Gloria Allred to represent her during this difficult time. Unlike her strategy with the masseurs suing John Travolta, the lawyer hasn't released a statement on the matter and doesn't plan on doing so either.
We have no idea why this woman would need a lawyer, but hopefully some more information will hit the web soon.
