Miami Zombie Cannibal Smoked Pot, No Bath Salts Detected

MIAMI, Florida –  The Miami-Dade County Medical Examiner Department has completed the toxicology on 31-year-old Rudy Eugene who was shot by police while in the act of devouring  65-year-old Ronald Poppo's face while naked near a Metro Mover track in Miami, Florida.  Eugene has been dubbed the Miami Zombie Cannibal after the horrific incident.

According to the Medical Examiner report, the department’s toxicology laboratory has identified the active components of marijuana.  Officials say that the laboratory has tested for, but not detected, any other street drugs, alcohol or prescription drugs, or any adulterants found in street drugs.  This includes cocaine, LSD, amphetamines (Extasy, Meth and others), phencyclidine (PCP or Angel Dust), heroin, oxycodone, Xanax, synthetic marijuana (Spice), and many other similar compounds.  


The Medical Examiner has ruled out the most common drugs found in “bath salts.”  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.  


The Medical Examiner concluded that, "Within the limits of current technology by both laboratories, marijuana is the only drug identified in the body of Mr. Rudy Eugene."
