US police released images of both men in the hope of trying to understand what provoked the cannibal act.
Ronald Poppo, 65,a Miami homeless man, has been identified as the victim in a horrific face-chewing attack.
Poppo’s attacker, has already been identified as 31-year-old Rudy Eugene,was shot dead by Police in Miami after he was found naked and eating the face off another man by the MacArthur Causeway.
Local reports said most of Poppo’s face was gone with his nose bitten, his eyes gouged, and his skin torn off. All that remains intact is his goatee, according to the Miami Herald.
Poppo remains in critical condition at a hospital.
Police believe the Rudy Eugene may have been suffering from “cocaine psychosis”, a condition caused by cocaine overdose. That may be an explanation to the reason the man was naked, as the condition causes the person to suffer from extreme fever. And it also may explain why he did not stop after being shot.
