Rudy Eugene, 31, was killed by a Miami Police officer May 26 as he savagely attacked homeless resident Ronald Poppo on a busy MacArthur Causeway off-ramp, chewing off half of Poppo's face in broad daylight while traffic whizzed past.
The gruesome incident, caught on tape by security cameras at the nearby Miami Herald building, has made international headlines and stunned those who knew Eugene -- those who now struggle to understand how and why he committed such a violent crime.
Poppo, 65, faces a grueling recovery at Jackson Memorial Hospital.
