The term "zombie apocalypse" has been lighting up the internet all week and has been among the top Google trends Friday morning.
On the Web's Urban Dictionary, here's definition No. 4 of zombie apocalypse: "The End of the World, when people who have died rise again in rotten corpses searching for blood and brains to strengthen them."
A "zombie apocalypse" may actually be behind the recent face-chewing incident in Florida. Rudy Eugene aka the Miami Cannibal, may have had a voodoo spell cast on him. His girlfriend said the flesh-eating attack was either due to drugs, or a curse from the devil.
The zombie apocalypse trend continues with a murder-cannibal incident in Harford, Maryland when a student killed another man who had lived with him and his family. The horrific incident happened sometime between last Friday -- when he was reported missing by the suspect's father -- and Tuesday night.
37-year-old Alexander Kinyua confessed to killing and eating the heart and a portion of the brains from 21-year-old Morgan State University student, Kujoe Bonsafo Agyei-Kodie. He had been living with the Kinyua family for the last year.
A second grisly zombie-like incident, this time in New Jersey. A 43-year-old man named Wayne Carter stabbed himself 50 times. Then when a SWAT team arrived Carter began throwing his intestines at them. He is now in a hospital. Combined with the recent Miami face-eater, Patrick Jones wonders if bath salts and insanity is the kick off of the zombie apocalypse.
A disturbing new story from Flagler County is contributing to the panic and speculation about a zombie apocalypse that started when a naked man was shot and killed in Miami while eating another man's face earlier this week...Roman allegedly admitted that he bit off the kitten's lips and burned off its whiskers and ear. He reportedly strangled another kitten to death. At this time, there is no indication that he actually ate the kitten's lips.
Zombies have been enjoying a fictional resurgence in the last ten years or so (28 Days Later, Shaun of the Dead, Zombieland, The Walking Dead). Now it looks like we are having a human flesh eating problem in real life. First we hear about the guy in Miami who was so hopped up on “bath salts” or a Haitian Voodoo curse (as his girlfriend suggested) that he spent 18 minutes eating the face off of a homeless man. Now, just a week later, comes reports of a Maryland man who confessed to eating bits of brain and the heart of his college roommate. What is going on in the world?
In the wake of reports that bath salts may have played a role in Saturday's Miami zombie apocalypse attack, the U.S. Senate passed a bill to ban the substances.
Federal legislation criminalizing synthetic marijuana and some bath salts passed the Senate today and is now on its way to the House of Representatives.
The law was not passed as a result of the zombie apocalypse, but as part of the FDA Safety and Innovation Act, championed by Sen. Charles Schumer.
The mother of Rudy Eugene, the naked cannibalistic individual who brutally attacked a homeless man in Miami and ate most of his face before being shot and killed by police, told the media that it was wrong that her deceased son was portrayed as a “zombie.”
