The unraveling of Rudy Eugene, aka the Miami causeway face attacker

Ruth Charles could not find a Haitian church in Miami to hold a funeral for her son, Rudy Eugene. The news of Eugene’s death on Memorial Day weekend was already too well known. He was shot to death by Miami police as he crouched over Ronald Poppo’s limp body, naked and growling, chewing off chunks of the man’s face. At 31, the son who had carried a Bible, quoted scripture and worn a four-inch cross on a chain around his neck had become something unrecognizable, known across the nation as the Miami zombie.
