It appears the plot in the case of the Miami cannibal has thickened. The much speculated cause, bath salts, was not found in his system during the autopsy:
“Rudy Eugene, the man who chewed off a homeless man’s face on the MacArthur Causeway and was shot to death by Miami police, had no drugs in his system other than marijuana, the Miami-Dade Medical Examiner’s office said Wednesday.”
He had no past history as a violent offender. Torn Bible pages were found strewn across the causeway. His girlfriend is convinced this was supernatural.
There are precedents for demonic possession:
“And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains: Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him. And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones.” (Mark 5:2-5)
Is this story about demon possession? We may never know for sure. But for now, traditional medical science is stumped.
