Report: Bath Salts Didn't Trigger Zombie Attack by 'Causeway Cannibal' Rudy Eugene

Publish date:

On Wednesday, a toxicology report said that Rudy Eugene, the 'Causeway Cannibal,' had not ingested any synthetic drugs, such as bath salts, before tearing off a homeless man’s face with his teeth.

The unclothed Eugene was shot dead by police after he was found eating another naked man’s face on the MacArthur Causeway in Miami.

According to CBS4 News, the toxicology report said: “The department has also sought the assistance of an outside forensic toxicology reference laboratory, which has confirmed the absence of ‘bath salts,’ synthetic marijuana and LSD. Within the limits of current technology by both laboratories, marijuana is the only drug identified in the body of Mr. Rudy Eugene.”

Whether Eugene was high on marijuana at the time of the attack is unclear because of the length of time marijuana can remain detectable in the human body.

Eugene’s victim is expected to recover, despite losing nearly 80 percent of his face.

On Tuesday, the U.S. Senate passed legislation that outlaws 26 drugs, including synthetic stimulants like “bath salts” and synthetic alternatives to marijuana like 'K2' and 'Spice.'
