Rudy Eugene wasn’t some madman or crazed lunatic, at least he didn’t behave that way in the hours leading up to him mauling off a homeless man’s face.
New details have emerged about the events which transpired in the hours before Rudy Eugene, dubbed the Causeway Cannibal, began eating 75% of a homeless man’s face.
Eugene spent a portion of the early part of the morning, around 2AM, at his girlfriend’s house, who said he was behaving strangely, going through both his and her clothes. By 6AM, Eugene had contacted a friend and asked him if he wanted to hang out at Urban Beach Weekend with him. The friend declined, saying he had to work.
Police believe Eugene then went alone to the festivities, which attracts thousands of people for Memorial Day Weekend. Eugene illegally parked his car, causing it to be towed. It is sometime after this point, where Eugene is walking in the heat, that he begins to take off his clothes, a trail of which are later found by officers. Still no one knows why Eugene decided to take off his clothes or why, after spotting the homeless man, he tore of the homeless man’s clothes as well, and began eating his face.
Toxicology reports will not be available for two weeks to two months.
