The more known cannibal in the US that has probably bumped Jeffery Dahmer down a peg or two would be The Miami Zombie, aka, Rudy Eugene. It was said in an eighteen minute attack he ate 75% of the face of a sixty five year old homeless man Ronald Poppo. It was said that Eugene was high on bath salts at the time of the attack causing him to over heat and giving him super human strength. He was completely naked at the time of the attack when police ended his attack by shooting him four times and killing him. Rudy Eugene was 31. Update: Depending on what site you go to, it is said that no human flesh was found in Eugene's stomach and he was not high on bath salts. However, two unidentified pills was found in his system.
Even in the sophisticated and educated arena, acts of cannibalism exsist. A Swedish professor, (checked three sites, name withheld) attacked his wife and cut her lip off with a scalpel and ate it. She asked for a divorce and he wanted for her to be able to suffer and never be able to kiss again. He ate her lip to keep doctors from being able to re-attach
it. This case is a bit different from the other two but it is cannibalism by it's base definition, the act or practice of humans

So why do they do it? Is it our fascination with zombie movies so we try to live in one. If that's the case it's like playing cops and robbers but they are wanting to be the robbber. Is it our obsession to be famous and all you need is an Internet Service Provider and some know how and you can post whatever you want the world to see. Two of the four above cases did that. Whatever the cause we as a society need to get a grip on what goes on in our neighborhood. Out of the above cases, the first could have been stopped if help would have stepped in when he was just torturing animals. The professor claims his attack was more spontaneous, however a good lawyer should be able to prove that since he took time to think about eating her lip, it shows edvidence that it was pre-meditated. Eugene's pills is still unidentified but may have in some way provoked it. And as far as Ivan goes, It's possible that there is more to the story than what has been printed.
