I knew this day would come! I'm excited yet nervous because I've been in training before I can even remember; thanks to my awesome Mom and zombie paranoid siblings. Clearly, the government is trying to cover up the Zombie Apocalypse! [/end dramatic, scary music]
Anyway, if you haven't heard, a young man (Rudy Eugene) in Miami was eating off another man's face (Ronald Poppo). Yep...his face. Eating IT! And they both were naked. Reports said it was because the attacker had been suffering from a drug-induced psychosis which causes the body to heat up. It basically prompts some users to remove their clothes in an effort to cool down. Hmm...I thought it was because it's hot in Florida...
Suspecting Zombie: Rudy Eugene, 31, North Miami Beach.
Ronald Poppo, 65
The man who got his face eaten, Ronald Poppo, is in critical condition. I feel so horrible for the man. It's horrifying and sad at the same time. I couldn't imagine how he feels. There are some pictures surfacing on the web.
In another case, in New Jersey, a 43-year old man (Wayne Carter) was barricaded in his room with a 12-inch knife and planned on harming himself. The cops kicked in the door and ordered him (Wayne Carter) to drop the knife. Ignoring the officers’ orders, Carter allegedly began stabbing himself in the abdomen, neck and legs. BANANAS! The police tried to stop him from stabbing himself, so they decided to spray him with pepper spray. Perhaps, that would work. But no, it didn't. It actually just enraged him even more. That's when he started throwing his intestines and other pieces of his skin at the cops.
To make a long story short, the police called in the Bergen County SWAT team, who were able to eventually subdue Carter and get him to a hospital. He remains in critical condition. Ahem...they believe it was drugs or mental illness that led to this horrific incident.
If I was cop, after seeing some stuff like that--as much as I love horror movies, I'd just retire.
Suspecting Zombie: Alexander Kinyua, 21, Maryland
In the most recent zombie attack, 21-year-old Maryland resident Alexander Kinyua ate his roommates heart and part of his brain. He now faces first degree murder. Kinyua's brother found what he thought was human remains in the basement at the family's house.
The brother told his father but when the father went downstairs to check it out--duh, Kinyua was cleaning out a canister and there were no signs of human remains. Kinyua's roommate, Kujoe Bonsafo Agyei-Kodie, was reported missing Friday. Although detectives have not positively identified the body, police say they have a strong suspicion it's the missing man since he went for a run but never returned. As a result, the police department was able to get a search and seizure warrant and found body parts in the home. Body parts were also found in a nearby dumpster. Scary!
Basically, people are saying that in each zombified situation, the criminals were on this new party raver drug called "Satan's Bath Salts"
"CDC does not know of a virus or condition that would reanimate the dead (or one that would present zombie-like symptoms)."

I know we're all wishing for a zombie apocalypse, but this is just sad and I don't know if we are all ready for something like that! If it does happen and it's the running zombies...good luck to us all!
