Miami Cannibal Victim: (Alleged) Photos Of His (Missing) Face Will Haunt Your Dreams *NSFW*

Categories: Horror Stories

The man pictured above is the Mason Verger character from the movie Hannibal. The photos making the rounds on the Internet supposedly of of the victim of the Miami cannibal look a lot like this -- only with a lot more blood, and a lot less face.

If you ever want to smile again/don't want to throw up, we advise that you stop reading right now -- the alleged photos of the face (or lack thereof) of the victim of a Miami cannibal's vicious attack have hit the web, and they are, without question, one of the more disturbing things you will ever see.

It's unclear whether the photos are real -- believe it or not, you can't believe everything you find on the Internet. But if they are, this guy is lucky to be alive after suspected cannibal Rudy Eugene chewed on his face before getting fatally shot by police on Saturday.

The horrifying images seem to match a description given by a Miami Herald reporter who has seen the photos, and describes victim Ronald Poppo's face as follows: "Much of the face was gone, the skin ripped away, the nose bitten and the eyes gouged. What remained was his goatee and little else."

Again, the images below are horrifying, and probably not safe for work. So view at your own risk (if you don't immediately vomit, click here for a story about a New Jersey man who threw his own intestines at the cops. True story).

Bitterness rears its ugly head. What do YOU believe in, if anything, NFM? Probably the part about a huge explosion, the earth randomly coming together with a gazillion or more components (that all HAD to fit together just perfectly to even sustain ANY life), with magical oceans that just came into existence,  first producing fish, who eventually made it out of the water, then learned to walk after they scientifically grew legs, and then naturally turned into monkeys, who are our great (add a couple hundred more "greats" in here) ancestors? Oh, and during this natural process, a million other creatures randomly appeared (excuse me, "evolved"), but luckily for us, the MONKEYS had the best brains, and fortunately over time, they mastered all the other creatures, and eventually changed a little bit, and here YOU are!? And isn't it amazing that mankind developed an internal moral compass,  randomly knowing what is right and what is wrong? I'll take the story about a loving God, crafting perfection, giving man free will and charge over his creation. The story where man (or a woman) was then tempted and ultimately doomed by the lies and deceit of true evil, and screwed it up for all of us!  Fortunately the same loving God, who couldn't stand the idea of evil taking his creation into his pit for eternity, came up with the perfect supernatural solution to bridge the gap. He then appeared on our earth, to take eternal judgement (FOR YOU) onto himself. Fortunately, history has PROVEN that this occurred, and luckily it doesn't require mankind to earn his way into heaven, that price was already paid.It takes faith, after searching of the soul (another "evolved" component I suppose- unless you feel that mankind is soul-less?) to  believe that a creator could be that LOVING. I KNOW one other thing that's real, and that is that evil has a leader too. THAT is who is behind the original story that led everyone to these discussions. We live in a dark world, sadly there are too many lost souls like yourself, who I hope and pray find the truth before it's someday too late. To anyone reading this or who may be on the fence, bottom line, you owe it to yourself to answer this "eternal" and critical questions, once and for all. IF you die tomorrow, do you know where you're going? One site I would recommend, would be proofthatgodexists dot org. Anyway, one thing we can all do, believers or unbelievers alike, is quite judging each other here, and sign off, donate a few bucks to this poor guys recovery fund, go help a random homelss person, fight for something positive we believe in. I'm going to go now and try to pull off one of these things. If enough of us would do it, the world would be a better place, until HE comes again soon, to rid us of evil, pain, and sadness, once and for all. I hope NFM, and pray, for a true miracle- and that someday down the line, things will have changed for you, and I'll meet you in heaven!

I know it is just a pic of the crime scene, but the responders are not even doing anything.  They are not trying to console the vistim or holding his hand or anything.  He looks so alone there.

Limen your an idiot amongst idiots. Im a 13 year old boy and i know alot of this more than you do. You sound like its the end of the goddamn world. Its not. This sort of cannabilism hasnt happened for over a century. Do you know what a century is? ITS 100 YEARS. Thats bull that your saying that people do this kind of stuff everyday. Some people do but they dont go out and start eating people faces off. I have been living in Miami my whole life also. Moving up north wont help you out either people sell drugs EVERYWHERE. People can make meth labs in there back yards for God's sakes. Cindy you also. We cant possibly be Re-Evolving . You really didnt watch the news or read this story did you? This man had taken Bath-Salts.

You know what forget it because your not gonna care and all youre gonna be doing is walking around like dumb asses and saying all these lies about Re-evolution and crap. So forget you look like idiots not me.

First off he was not a cannibal. Second, he had taken some drug that made him do that. Third, the police officer shot him about half a dozen times because when youre intoxicated you dont feel any pain. So when the cop was shooting at him he just kept on chewing on the poor mans face.

First of he was not a cannibal. So i dont why people are saying that. He was taking drugs and it made him go crazy. The cops had to shoot him that many tines because when your intoxicated you dont feel much pain. Actually you dont feel any pain whatsoever.

Please you guys, calling each other hurtful names isn't going to make anything better and everyone is entitled to their own beliefs. Some people believe there is a God and some don't.

Obviously if it was the white man to attack the blacks in this gruesome situation, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and the whole black racist tribe would be the first to act on the scene calling it a racial attack. But since it's the other way around how surprisingly there just sitting in their caves not showing face.

Sorry, but 1st of all, this site is a bogus as all the newspaper/magazines that lay wait at the checkout counter at your grocery store with titles like, "Lose 50 lbs in 7 days, PROOF" or "Martians Confirmed To Be Living In Houston" etc...

2ndly, even if pics WERE taken, they would NOT be made available to the public...sorry, it just aint so folks.

For all you who believe them to be real, I've got some ocean front property in Wyoming to offer you at a real good price!

Wow this is crazy to just think that eating someone's face off is not just in movies but now real life! Posting these pics on the web is not a surprise but it just makes ppl aware of what's going on and sometimes we can take that stuff and learn from it. I hope the best for the recovery of this guy just hang in there.

With respect to this article, I don't think anyone is saying the world is ending tomorrow, however, scriptures says to look at the "signs of the times" earthquakes, wars, rumors of wars. All this takes time but watch out because Christ will come as a thief in the night.

4 Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. 6 You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 7 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be faminesand earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of birth pains.9 “Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me.10 At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, 11 and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. 12 Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, 13 but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.

Im glad the officer shot the cannibal.  The bible says a life for a life.

I just hope that Mr. Poppo went into shock, and will have no recollection of the attack.  That would be the most horrible thing to live through that I can imagine.

Man, I remember this guy when (Ronald) he use to be on a wheelchair in Miami. About 7 or 8 years ago he got an operation and was walking again.  Somehow, he got his life rolling again and found a job and was working. Two years ago he was in the streets again, homeless. It's such a shame that this happen to him.  Can something good come out of this for him?? I hope so.

Read these comments. Are you still wondering why this guy snapped? This world in a rapidly unraveling ball of yarn, and some people just aren't up to the challenge. Bath Salts have been shown to promote schizoaffective disorder in some, when abused. I really don't buy the L.S.D. theory. As others have mentioned, this just reeks of a PCP bender, probably blended with a nice unhealthy dollop of pre-existing mental illness. I've seen it. I've been homeless.

I have to say that it is hardly surprising to witness the ferocity and horror of what one man can do to another via these photographs when one takes into consideration the vile, vicious and generally disturbing commentary I've perused through on this thread.How low we have sunk as a society, some of you are frighteningly ugly, morbidly grotesque individuals who need help. You lack empathy and compassion for your fellow man, and that, by any standard of decency,  makes YOU the monsters. You mock and attack others for their personal beliefs, and make jokes about something SO horribly disturbing. I guess this is what the generation of reality tv is reduced to, mindless dumb animals who have never been taught how to respect themselves or others.Simply disgusting.

The pics are real but not necessarily taken in a hospial, he is wearing a neck brace and most likely on a gurney but that doesn't mean he was in the hospital. As a matter of fact, the more I look at the pics,  I'm not sure he's even intubated yet, if he had made it to the ER, they would have intubated him asap. Those pics look like they could have been taken out in the field in which case it could have been any number of people who got pics of him before he went in the ambulance; ie, members of the press, paramedics, police officers etc...

I dont know how to help many of you understand where some of the christian responders are coming from on this issue, whithout you jumping to some outrageous accusations that we are all "stupid" or something. I undestand it was the drug and all that, that caused this terrible event. However, this act and many others are linked to the "evil" that is in our world. I hope this helps many of you undertand... Acts 19:13-16Then some of the itinerant Jewish exorcists undertook to invoke the name of the Lord Jesus over those who had evil spirits, saying, “I adjure you by the Jesus whom Paul proclaims.” Seven sons of a Jewish high priest named Sceva were doing this. But the evil spirit answered them, “Jesus I know, and Paul I recognize, but who are you?” And the man in whom was the evil spirit leaped on them, mastered allof them and overpowered them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.It’s interesting to note that the attacker destroyed the man’s likeness - his face. Why? I’m just speculating but it seems like something wanted to destroy the likeness of one created in the image of God. I think as time goes on we are going to see more of this evil as humanity continues to drift away from God. Could it be that this is a glimpse of how times will be when the restrainer is “taken out of the way”? There are going to be worldly secular explanations, based on human wisdom and understanding, of this event akin to Pharaoh gathering up his wise men to explain away the plagues of God, but nothing can convince me that this action and actions like it are not directly related to the ruler of this world and his minions.-http://www.prophezine.com/inde...

Its kinda fucked up, no matter what article your reading. The comments below all end up in a ridiculous argument where people insult each other. Why can't we look at the bigger picture which would be the SITUATION that had occurred. At any rate...my heart goes out to the victims, Yes I said Victims PLURAL. For you grammar Nazis out there :)  People are stupid and willing to try anything to "push off" or "get high"....Lets just stick with weed...that doesnt seem to cause any cannibalism :)

When this kind of stuff happens it should be all over the news. People need to know the consequences of doing drugs any freaking kind of drugs. Drunkards should stop being so drunk they get their face chewed off. Bath salt freaks need to know about what they are getting into, a life filled with horror if they survive. People who do drugs are dangerous to themselves and other people even drunkards. A month or so ago a guy was flagged on my city block for running around naked and a couple weeks later he burnt down his abode a few houses down from mine.This kid wasn't even 25 years old yet. I am on the other side of the country no where near Miami. Drugs any kind of drugs are plain rotten things. Lets all thank face book for these alarming trends in young people. Who would have guessed, I learned about bath salts from my teen aged niece. This is as repulsive as it should be.

This is really really sad. Of course no one should blame Eugene nor Ronald. I feel sorrow for both of the men in this case. I really hope Ronald gets much better and that Rudy will rest in piece. Im just a 13 year old searching the web when i come across horrible things like this. Normally im all into blood and gore but when its REAL LIFE its just horrible. And im also not religious, but i will, just for the hell of it, pray for both of these men. And really guys, come on. Stop calling Rudy a zombie! Thats really disrespectful to his family. Im sure if Rudy was your brother or son or whatever and this happened, would you really want him to forever to be known as 'the Miami Zombie?!?' ~Emily

Error. please ignor the previous comment. Regardless of any hated, evil... love or good that this world has in store for us.. it's good to know that we can all come to a given blog, voice our thoughts and opinions anonymously, and feel like we have a voice. And at the end of the day, what have we accomplished?? Not one bit of difference. It's like this, regarless as to what you believe, religion or otherwise, let's start the day tomorrow with a goal to help another out somehow. If we each do what we can to help our neighbor or stanger.. whatever that may be. In the meantime, let's keep Ronald in our thoughts.

As a graphic design student and an amateur photographer, I can tell you that those pictures were taken inside a building.  The lighting is too dim for outdoors, and too light for an ambulance.A flash was used for the second photo. I don't think they would have done an oral intubation due to the horrific damage to his face.  They probably did a tracheotomy after the picture was taken though.
