It doesn’t get much creepier than this: A naked man was shot to death by Miami police as he was reportedly gnawing off the face of another man. The Hannibal Lecter-esque scene unfolded Saturday afternoon as crowds poured into South Beach for a hip-hopfestival. After gunshots were heard on a downtown off-ramp, a police officer arrived, and seeing the ghoulish sight, ordered the crazed man to stop.
When he continued to chew on his victim, reportedly eating about half his face off, the naked attacker was shot and killed, while the victim was hospitalized with critical injuries. Police haven’t released any details about the people involved, but they speculate the alleged face-eater might have been suffering from “cocaine psychosis.“
