Ronald Poppo will be disfigured forever and need months of therapy after a gruesome attack by Randy Eugene on a Miami highway, the Associated Press is reporting.
“He had his face eaten down to his goatee. The forehead was just bone. No nose, no mouth,” Sgt. Armando Aguilar told the AP.
While Poppo’s injuries won’t likely kill him, the AP reported, he does face possible risks from germs introduced by Eugene’s bites.
The motive for Eugene’s attack is unknown and may never be known because police shot him dead at the scene.
