Man Who Got His Face Eaten Off Shows His Face in Recovery

Now be warmed,
it is EXTREMELY graphic.
So you have been FULLY warned before you click that read more!

Over the Memorial Day Weekend, a homeless man’s face was notoriously chewed off by a man believed to be on the drug bath salts. Doctors have released new information and photos of Ronald Poppo, and they are happy to report he is doing “well”, but in need of more surgery. They said approximately 50% of his face is missing, and that the “charming” Poppo both remembers the attack and understands that he is in hospital. More details and the graphic photos below.

(HP) – “We have mental health professionals to help him with the coping, and he’s coping remarkably well,” said plastic surgeon Dr. Wrood Kassira, who along with JMH/University of Miami trauma physician Dr. Nicholas Namias is part of the medical team treating Poppo. The 65-year-old victim reportedly had a message to give to the public when doctors visited with him this morning: “Go Heat!”

Poppo, who is believed to have been homeless in Miami since the mid-to-late 1970s, is covered by Medicare and Medicaid, according to the Miami Herald. He was lazing on the MacArthur Causeway’s westbound Biscayne Boulevard exit ramp sidewalk May 26 when attacked in broad daylight by naked 31-year-old North Miami resident Rudy Eugene, who was caught on surveillance camera trying to strip off Poppo’s clothes before brutalizing his face.

A police officer responding to multiple 911 calls from drivers and cyclists shot and killed Eugene when he reportedly ignored orders to stop chewing Poppo’s face. An autopsy reportedly allegedly discovered Poppo’s flesh in the so called “Miami Cannibal”‘s mouth, but not in his stomach. Police have speculated that Eugene may have been under the influence of a synthetic drug, but a full toxicology report is still pending.


Absolutely sad.
They need to pull those bath salts off the damn shelf now.
I literally still have no words for this crazy bullshit.

  1. he only had marijauna in his system ONLY not bath salts and cannibalism has been around for hundreds no thousands of years and bath salts weren’t around than , the man should take his anti psychotic meds but no he refused thats his and gaurdians fault

  2. I’m so anti-drugs. I feel so bad for this guy, I wish I lived closer to help me, No One deserves what has happened to this man. He was already homeless, that was enough pain in itself & for him to suffer the pain of another mans abuse. Is so horrifying sad to me

  4. It is so sad. I dont know what this world is coming to.All I can say is Its time to give your life to the lord and start praying because you never know what can happen. We can be here one day and gone the next.Its time to live for God and let this wicked world go. If u wanna be saved all you got to do is quote this scripture and believe it.”That if thou confess with thou mouth the lord Jesus and believe in thine heart that God has raised him from the dead,Thou shall be saved”. Romans Chp.10 verse 9 in the bible.May God touch your life that u may wanna be saved.(Be Blessed)

  6. I think that this is really sad like he might nevr be able to see again an I knw that is painful. He is blessed to still be alive.

  7. What we all need to do is just have a kind heart and stop being hateful, that’s why this world is the way it is…SMH

    1. look it betta not be cuz im goin right to the gun store an im shootin anythang that aint speakin human…ya feel me, an im not cool wit that touchy ish so any thats gon do that best believe gon get shoot too

  9. What’s really sad to me is that in one of the richest countries in the world that this man has been homeless since the 70’s. Smh. And shame on you guy with the racist comment. Let’s see Jeffrey Dahmer and Ed Gene were both white dummy.

    1. Rasist ass the color of his skin has nothing to do with was the damn drug he was on. It also has nothing to do with zombies or the world coming to an end nobody knows when the world is gonna end not even Jesus or the angel only God himself so with all that said U NEED HELP TRY GOING TO CHURCH

    2. Are you SERIOUS????? REALLY??? WOW you have to be one of the most uneducated morons I’ve ever came across! The man that did this HORRIBLE act was an addicate, he had mental issues, it had NOTHING to do w/ the color of his skin! There are very bad, very sick people out there of every color and race. Look in your mirror Bub! O, and do a family tree, I’m betting YOU aren’t pure….not many in our GREAT MELTING POT ARE!

  10. Damn… it brings me back to the lady who was mauled by a monkey…. I just thank God for keeping me safe. that shit is crazy cause I live out here, I’m bout to come back up north!

    1. Exactly what I’m thinking of. I think she had it worse though. At least this guy still has his hands and his jaws are in tact. His ears also look fine but I’m not sure if the monkey tore her ears off.

  11. I am definitely wishing nothing but the best of luck and a speedy recovery for him. This is so fvcked up.
