Spate of cannibal cases leaves people wondering of ‘Zombie Apocalypse’

Cannibal cases provide grist for ‘Zombie Apocalypse’

Should we all be in fear of a “Zombie Apocalypse” after several recent cannibal attacks throughout the country? . . . Probably

The recent string of grisly cannibal attacks across the country has incited faux fears that this could be the start of a “Zombie Apocalypse.”

From the naked Miami man who ate the face off a homeless man to the Canadian porn star accused of dismembering and eating his gay lover, the Internet is humming with nutty rumors — the undead have begun to devour the living!

A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention spokesman went so far as to issue a statement — that the “CDC does not know of a virus or condition that would reanimate the dead (or one that would present zombielike symptoms).”

Matt Mogk, author of the book “Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Zombies” said he doesn’t believe this is the beginning of the end.

“A fundamental element of zombiism is that it’s infectious,” he said. “As long as the guy in Miami doesn’t start screaming, ‘Brains!’ and trying to eat his doctor, we’re all good.”

Some states have banned “bath salts” — manmade drugs that can cause paranoia, hallucinations and superhuman strength — which are believed to be behind several of the recent attacks, and the

U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration has banned common ingredients in the drug.

Face eaten in Miami

A naked Rudy Eugene, 31, was shot and killed on May 26 by a police officer as he viciously chewed the face off homeless victim Ronald Poppo, 65, in Miami.

The cannibal was caught on surveillance video taking off Poppo’s clothes and then pummeling him before lying down on top of his victim and gnawing his face.

He is suspected to have been under the influence of “bath salts” at the time of the attack. An autopsy revealed that Eugene had human flesh lodged between his teeth, though none in his stomach, the Miami Herald reported.

Eugene had been arrested several times on marijuana-related charges, according to court records.

Poppo remains hospitalized at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, hospital officials said .

Cut up his housemate

Baltimore college student Alex Kinyua, 21, allegedly killed and carved up his housemate Kujoe Bonsafo Agyei-Kodie, 37, with a knife before eating his victim’s heart and part of his brain.

Kinyua, a student at Morgan State University, admitted killing his housemate when he was nabbed on May 30 by the Harford County Sheriff’s Office.

Kinyua had been called a “Virginia Tech waiting to happen” by a campus ROTC instructor.

He was kicked out of the ROTC program for punching holes in the wall of a computer lab.

Grisly deliveries

Canadian porn actor Luka Rocco Magnotta, 29, was accused of killing his gay lover then mailing the body parts of victim Jun Lin, 33, to the offices of Canadian political parties and schools.

Magnotta was arrested Monday at an Internet cafe in Berlin reading media coverage on his own international manhunt.

He allegedly beheaded and dismembered Lin, a Chinese student, and then ate a piece of his victim’s flesh with a fork and knife.

Magnotta even allegedly filmed the gory murder and posted it on YouTube.
