Face-Eater Wasn’t on Bath Salts

After the story—and the drug allegedly behind it—took the media by storm, medical examiners have made a shocking discovery: the man shot while eating a victim’s face in Miami had no trace of bath salts in his system. The body of Rudy Eugene, who was killed by police during the incident in May, only contained traces of marijuana. The bizarre crime and Eugene’s freakish behavior led to widespread belief that bath salts, an easily obtainable stimulant that mimics the effects of harder drugs, had been responsible.
