Naked man killed by Police near MacArthur Causeway was ‘eating’ face off victim

BY DANIELA GUZMAN AND JULIE K. BROWN

It was a scene as creepy as a Hannibal Lecter movie.

One man was shot to death by Miami police, and another man is fighting for his life after he was attacked, and his face allegedly half eaten, by a naked man on the MacArthur Causeway off ramp Saturday, police said.

The horror began about 2 p.m. when a series of gunshots were heard on the ramp, which is along NE 13th Street, just south of The Miami Herald building.

According to police sources, a road ranger saw a naked man chewing on another man’s face and shouted on his loud speaker for him to back away.Meanwhile, a woman also saw the incident and flagged down a police officer who was in the area.

The officer, who has not been identified, approached and, seeing what was happening, also ordered the naked man to back away. When he continued the assault, the officer shot him, police sources said. The attacker failed to stop after being shot, forcing the officer to continue firing. Witnesses said they heard at least a half dozen shots.

Miami police were on the scene, which was just south of The Miami Herald building on Biscayne Boulevard. The naked man who was killed lay face down on the pedestrian walkway just below the newspaper’s two-story parking garage. Police have requested The Herald’s video surveillance tapes.

The other man was transported to the hospital with critical injuries, according to police. Their identities were not released.

The incident, which came as crowds descended upon South Beach for the annual Urban Beach Week hip-hop festival, snarled traffic on the causeway for several hours.

In a text message, Javier Ortiz, spokesman for Miami police’s Fraternal Order of Police, said the officer who fired the fatal shots was “a hero.”

“Based on the information provided, our Miami police officer is a hero and saved a life,’’ he said.

Sergeant Altarr Williams, supervisor of Miami police’s Homicide Unit, said a man doesn’t have to be armed to be dangerous.

“There are other ways to injure people,’’ Williams said. “Some people know martial arts, others are very strong and can kill you with their hands.’’

Investigators believe the victim may have been homeless and laying down when the crazed man pounced.

Police theorize the attacker might have been suffering from "cocaine psychosis," a drug-induced craze that bakes the body internally and often leads the affected to strip naked to try and cool off.

That is so grisly. Shudder. Seems like they were reporting initially, though, that both dudes were naked.

I thought Zombies didn't come out during the day, and couldn't be stopped with bullets? If this is true, destroying the Zombie hoardes is going to be a lot easier than I thought it would be.

Victim Identified In Causeway Cannibal Attack « CBS Miami

This article is a bit about the victim. Looks like his life was a tragedy. The bit about not being able to find a single family member is really sad.

There's a little more on that site about the "zombie" as well. Played football in high school, had a wife at some point.

They are thinking probably a new street drug called Bath Salts. Never heard of it.

Drugs are bad.

Try K2 or the other manufactured drugs available at many convenience stores as "bath salts" or incense. the latest use claims it cleans your hookah.

"Bath Salts" - Emerging and Dangerous Products | National Institute on Drug Abuse

Yeah. Just looked it up. It's legal!

Seems to me like it might be a better thing to make this crap illegal, and let them buy pot. At least it mellows them instead of making them run around naked and chew people's faces off.

I don't generally favor legal recreational drugs, but ... human nature being what it is, maybe the least toxic ones should be easier to obtain and cheaper to discourage the really bad stuff.

Melody that is exactly what I said to my wife. Weed is illegal but people who smoke weed are not out there having a psychotic episode. How these K2's and bath salts are not deemed illegal by federal government is beyond me. Sell weed and tax it because people can get it if they want it. What kills me is how concerned the government is about pot but people can smoke cigarettes until there lungs are black. Awesome!

This face eating guy was not a zombie and it is unfair to lump all zombies in with this nutball. It's is racist against zombies. Now, I don't like Zombies myself, but it has nothing to do with just the fact they are zombies, it's because of their insistence to try any other delicacy but brain. If they would just expand their horizons, we wouldn't have to go killing them all the time......they are just so stubborn.....

By the way, even if you don't tend to like zombie-themed movies - check out Zombieland. Very funny movie with a great cameo by Bill Murray. I can't watch that movie without craving a Twinkie.

I'm going to the radio station now. Wish me luck.
