Naked South Florida Man Bites Random Passerby's Face, Shot Dead by Police

Rudy Eugene, the last zombie attacker.
It happened again. Rekindling a classic South Florida tale, another rampaging naked man with superhuman strength and a taste for flesh emerged last night.

The man, who hasn't been identified yet, attacked and seriously injured a retired police officer, severely bit into an 18-year-old man's face, and then was shot dead by Palm Beach County deputies after several Taser blasts didn't slow him.

"It was two unprovoked altercations by a naked black male running through the area, and the two victims were badly beaten," a sheriff's office spokesperson tells New Times this morning.

Indeed, the night began with nudity. At some point before 8:30 a.m., and for unknown reasons, the man stripped while loping along South Military Trail. He then came upon a 66-year-old retired police officer, the Palm Beach Post reports, and left him with serious injuries.

A hulk of a figure, the man stood taller than six-foot-three and weighed at least 250 pounds. He continued north on South Military Trail, west of downtown Delray Beach, where he discovered and proceeded to chase a man with his 10-year-old son.

"He's obviously delirious on something," Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw said. "He is a huge guy. He takes a fighting stance. They're trying to get him on the ground. He starts charging them. The Taser did not affect him."

An 18-year-old materialized on the scene, and the deranged man attacked him, biting into his face. The teenager brandished a box cutter, but it wasn't enough to take down his attacker.

A deluge of police cars arrived, and deputies shot the assailant with a Taser. It didn't faze him.

"The man then charged our deputy, and he discharged his firearm," the spokesperson tells New Times. "But he was not incapacitated. He was then Tased, but that also had no effect."

The next few bullets, however, did. He took once in the chest and another in the leg. He died after arriving at Delray Medical Center, authorities say, though it wasn't clear whether it was the gunshots or the drugs that ultimately killed him. Deputies say they suspect the man was on some sort of narcotic and haven't identified him yet.

All the victims were taken to Delray Medical Center with serious injuries.

*BEFORE READING ANY OTHER COMMENTS I ASK YOU TO PLEASE READ THIS*


First I want to say I am very sorry for anyone who was hurt by this incident, & that I sympathize with them & their families. I realize this is an extremely unfortunate situation, & I’m thankful that they weren’t hurt any more than what was already done. I wish them the very best for their full & complete recovery.

                                        *PLEASE READ THIS*

     *IM POSTING THIS TODAY NOW TO HOPEFULLY SHED SOME LIGHT*


I WANT TO SAY THAT I KNOW 100% FOR A FACT THAT THIS WAS NOT SOMETHING THAT ANNESON JOSPEH INTENDED TO DO, OR HAD ANY INTENTION TO DO. I REALLY HOPE THIS CASE IS INVESTIGATED VERY THROUGHOULY BECAUSE I KNOW FOR A FACT THERE IS MORE TO THIS THAN WHAT IT SEEMS TO BE.


I’M BORN & RAISED IN WEST PALM BEACH, FL, AND I PERSONALLY KNOW ANNESON JOSEPH, HE WAS A CLOSE FRIEND OF MINE. HIS NICKNAME WAS “ANO”, AND I ALSO GREW UP WITH HIM THROUGHOUT MIDDLE SCHOOL AND HIGH SCHOOL; CONNISTON MIDDLE SCHOOL, AND FOREST HILL HIGH SCHOOL. ANO WOULDN’T HURT A FLY. ANO WAS A REALLY GOOD PERSON. ANO DOES NOT USE DRUGS, HE HATED DRUGS. IF HE WAS ON ANY DRUGS AT THE TIME, CERTAINLY HE WAS EITHER UNAWARE OF IT, OR SOMEONE PUT SOMETHING IN HIS DRINK, OR SOMETHING ALONG THESE LINES. IM POSTING THIS NOW TODAY BECAUSE I DON’T BELIEVE HE DESERVES TO HAVE HIS NAME RUINED AND FOR HIM TO BE REMEMBERED THIS WAY. BELIEVE ME THERE IS SOMETHING DEEPER TO THIS STORY.


THIS IS NOT JUST “SOME GUY ON DRUGS” WHO DID SOMETHING BAD AND HURT SOME PEOPLE. SOMETHING HAPPENED TO ANNESON JOSEPH, SOMEONE DID SOMETHING OR SOMETHING OR I DON’T KNOW WHAT CAUSED THIS BUT I CAN HONESTLY REALLY AND TRUELY SAY THIS WAS NOT SOMETHING AT ALL IN ANO’S CHARACTER. ANO WAS NOT CRAZY BY ANY DEFINITION, HE WAS ACTUALLY VERY INTELLIGENT, AND A VERY COMPASSIONATE PERSON WHO CARED ABOUT EVERYONE, AND WANTED TO HELP PEOPLE. TAKE A LOOK AT SOME OF HIS VIDEO’S ON YOUTUBE; HIS DOCUMENTARY’S ARE PROFOUND.

ANNESON JOSEPH HAD A DEEP LOVE FOR PEOPLE, AND FOR THE TRUTH. THAT’S WHY HE CREATED HIS DOCUMENTARIES BECAUSE HE WANTED PEOPLE TO SEE & KNOW TRUTH, AND TO THINK FOR THEMSELVES. ASK ANYONE WHO WENT TO CONNISTON MIDDLE OR FOREST HILL HIGH SCHOOL OR ANYONE THAT KNOWS ANO THEY WILL TELL YOU THE SAME. HE WAS A GOOD GUY. HE HAD NO ENEMIES. HE WAS ALWAYS LAUGHING AND JOKING AND SMILEING, HAVING A GOOD TIME. HE HAD A GIFT FOR LIGHTING UP THE ROOM WITH SMILES, BECAUSE OF HIS EASY GOING AND EMBRACING PERSONALITY.


THE MAN YOU SEE IN THIS VIDEO IS NOT THE REAL ANNESON JOSEPH. I DON’T KNOW WHAT CAUSED THIS OR WHY, THE FACTS ARE STILL UNCLEAR, BUT I CAN HONESTLY TELL YOU FROM AN UNBIASED POINT OF VIEW THAT THIS IS NOT SOMETHING ANO IS CAPABLE OF. HE WAS A REALLY GOOD PERSON WHO LOVED GOD AND BELIEVED IN GOD. I KNOW FOR SURE 100% SOMETHING HAPPENED TO HIM OR SOME ONE DID SOMETHING. I AM SERIOUSLY SHOCKED TO HEAR THIS. THIS IS THE SADDEST THING IVE EVER HEARD IN MY LIFE. ANO DOES NOT DESERVE TO BE REMEMBERED THIS WAY.


 AGAIN I AM SORRY FOR ANYONE WHO WAS A VICTIM IN THIS INCIDENT BUT I JUST WANTED TO POST THIS BECAUSE IT’S THE TRUTH. MAY GOD GUIDE HIS SOUL, AND BRING PEACE AND SOLACE TO HIS SPIRIT, ALONG HIS JOURNEY TO HIS NEW DESTINATION. ANNESON JOSEPH WAS REALLY, AND TRULY, A GOOD, KIND HEARTED PERSON. FOR THE VICTIMS AND FOR EVERYONE ELSE, PLEASE KNOW; THIS WAS NOT SOMETHING HE INTENTED TO DO, OR CONSCIOUSLY WANTED TO DO. THIS WAS NOT IN HIS NATURE OR CHARACTER AT ALL. BELIEVE ME, THERE IS SOMETHING MORE TO THIS STORY. ANNESON JOSEPH WAS A REALLY GOOD PERSON.

Cops should have 2 caliber guns, one small for situations like this and one big for when lethal force IS needed. Unarmed and high on PCP deserves a couple of small bullets.

You took the words from my mouth, couldn't have said better. He worked with me in Starbucks for many years. Sweetest most loving kid ever. I know they have him something. This is not our ano banano ( how we called him in city place,) may him rest in peace. He cannot be remembered as they describe him. This is unreal.

please bro bill nye already went and crushed your dogma with pure unadulterated fact and common sense on a global scale. the fact that you have belief in a god who decided to become human to sacrifice himself to himself to save us from his own rage shows that you're definitely low on the intelligence bar.. in fact i'd be surprised if theme park officials would allow you to ride on the roller coasters because of you actually believing that narcissistic dung heap..


now lets get back to the actual point of the article which is some african american guy with a brutal lust for getting stark naked and eating peoples faces off with glee as he gets tazered ineffectively and eventually shot dead.
