A Miami police officer shot Rudy Eugene last Saturday after repeatedly ordering him to stop eating another man’s face. It is reported Eugene growled when he was confronted by the police officer and to save Ronald Poppo’s life, the officer shot and killed Eugene.
On Tuesday (May 29), the experts openly admitted the behaviors or possible psychosis that Eugene exhibited were strikingly akin to the effects of the street drug called ‘bath salts,’ albeit it is not known at this time if Eugene was under the influence of bath salts or any other drug such as LSD.
The emergency physician at the hospital where the cannibal victim is (currently) states the misuse of bath salts as a recreational drug has increased the number of admissions just this past year from a type of psychosis with symptoms of irrationality, aggression and unusual strength. It is being insinuated Eugene was possibly delusional from drugs as he reacted to the four gunshot wounds with unnatural resiliency.
But aside of the ‘new’ street drug, the perplexing behavior is the cannibalism and the alleged growling when confronted by the police. Many individuals are referencing this incident as a ‘zombie attack’ and ‘zombie Apocalypse’ in the media.
Could it be possible Eugene assumed a ‘zombie’ character while under the influence of mind-altering drugs?
Recent research suggests people copy fictitious characters in real life. Researchers call this phenomenon “experience taking” when people assume the feelings, beliefs and internal responses of the character they are associating with. Being under the influence of any narcotic, a person may be more apt to ‘act out’ or possibly believe they have morphed into the fictitious character they are interested in.
The popularity of zombies in recent years may encourage more individuals in a psychotic state to believe they are zombies, which may be the reality of drugs.
