A girlfriend of the Miami cannibal says the man either had a “voodoo curse on him” or that he “was drugged unknowingly,” CBS reported.Rudy Eugene was fatally shot by police in Miami after he refused to stop chewing on a man’s face.
The unnamed girlfriend had been dating Eugene on and off for five years and said there were no signs of violence from him and that he was a “sweet, loving gentleman,” according to CBS.
Eugene attended Bible studies regularly and carried a Bible with him “all the time,” his girlfriend told CBS.
However, Eugene was also guilty of smoking pot regularly and, contrary to what his girlfriend claims, “had some violent episodes in the past,” according to The Examiner.
In a new twist, celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred announced that she would represent one of Eugene’s girlfriends, but didn’t make it clear why, CBS reported.
