A Louisiana man is in custody after allegedly biting the face off of another man. This latest "zombie" crime is at least the fourth reported cannibalistic incident since a Florida man stripped naked and chewed 80% of the face off a homeless victim.
Law Enforcement officials in Scott, Lousiana, confirmed that Car Jacquneaux, 43, attacked an unnamed victim and, using his teeth, tore parts of the man’s face off.
“During the attack, the suspect bit a chunk of the victim’s face,” said assistant police chief Kert Thomas. “He was clearly under the influence of some kind of drug.”
Local TV station KATC is reporting that a friend of the victim believes that Jacquneaux was under the influence of a street drug known as “bath salts.” The potent hallucinogen is known to cause, delirium, distress, psychosis and even homicidal behavior.
Interestingly, bath salts are also blamed for the first zombie attack in Florida.
The Louisiana victim is currently under medical supervision and is expected to recover.
