No Bath Salts, Only Marijuana Found In "Face-Eater" Toxicology Tests
2012 06 29
It wasn’t bath salts.
According to a statement on the full toxicology report by the Miami-Dade medical examiner, the only drug detected in the lifeless body of infamous Miami face-chewer Rudy Eugene was marijuana.
"The department’s toxicology laboratory has identified the active components of marijuana," medical examiner Dr. Bruce Hyma said in a statement. "The laboratory has tested for but not detected any other street drugs, alcohol or prescription drugs...This includes cocaine, LSD, amphetamines (Extasy, Meth and others), phencyclidine (PCP or Angel Dust), heroin, oxycodone, Xanax, synthetic marijuana (Spice), and many other similar compounds."
A second forensic toxicology lab also confirmed the absence of the most common ingredients of bath salts, a synthetic amphetamine cocktail blamed in several recent incidents that bear some similarity to Eugene’s attack.
"Within the limits of current technology by both laboratories," the statement read, "marijuana is the only drug identified in the body of Mr. Rudy Eugene."
The statement did not address previously reported autopsy findings of what appeared to be undigested pills in Eugene’s stomach, and an expert told the Associate Press marijuana alone was not likely to cause such an attack:
"The problem today is that there is an almost an infinite number of chemical substances out there that can trigger unusual behavior," said Dr. Bruce Goldberger, Professor and Director of Toxicology at the University of Florida.

Man on synthetic marijuana chases neighbour while growling before ’strangling and EATING dog’ in zombie-like attack
By Thomas Durante | DailyMail.co.uk
A drug-fuelled rampage led a man to attack several people and chase around a neighbour while growling like an animal - before he brutally killed and ate a dog.
Cops arrived at a home in Waco, Texas, on June 14 after a man called 911 to report a man living in his house that was ’going crazy.’
Police said that Michael Terron Daniel told his housemates that he was ’on a bad trip’ after taking the synthetic drug K-2 and began attacking them.
Outside the home, Daniel allegedly assaulted another man who lived at the home.
Sgt W. Patrick Swanton of the Waco Police Department told MailOnline that when a neighbour tried to intervene, Daniel got down on his hands and knees and ’began barking and growling like a dog.’
He then chased the neighbour, who ran into his house.
As horrified witnesses watched, Daniel allegedly turned his drug-fuelled rage to a medium-sized Spaniel mix, who belonged to one of his housemates, beating and choking the animal.
Sgt Swanton said that Daniel then ’took a bite out of the dog, ripping pieces of flesh away and eating them.’
Police showed up to find Daniel sitting on the front porch with the dog’s carcass on his lap.
Sgt Swanton said: ’There was blood and fur around his mouth, blood and fur on his clothing.’

Beaten to Death at McDonald’s
2014 08 29
To the four clean-cut college freshman out on a double date, it had seemed like a typical McDonald’s: spanking clean, well-lighted, and safe. It was in a good neighborhood too, right next to Texas A&M University in College Station -- a campus known for its friendly atmosphere and official down-home greeting: “howdy.”
Shortly after 2 A.M. that Sunday, they pulled into ...
