American cage fighter 'rips out still-beating heart of training partner after fearing he was possessed by the devil'

A U.S. cage fighter ripped out the heart of his training partner while he was still alive after becoming convinced he was possessed by the devil, it was alleged today.

Jarrod Wyatt also cut out Taylor Powell's tongue and ripped off most of his face in a brutal assault that police said looked like a scene from a horror film, officers said.

They claim they found the 26-year-old standing naked over his friend's body with parts, including an eyeball, strewn around the blood splattered room in Klamath, California.

Wyatt allegedly told police he had drunk a cup of tea spiked with hallucinogenic mushrooms and became convinced Powell was possessed.

According to an autopsy Powell, 21, bled to death after his heart was ripped out.

The coroner said Powell had been alive when the organ was ripped out after his chest had been sliced open with a knife.

Wyatt told the police he thrown the heart into a fire along with other organs that he had removed from the body, it was claimed.

He allegedly told investigators he cooked the body parts because he was fearful Powell was still alive and he ‘needed to stop the Devil’.

Police had been called to the grisly scene after a third friend had witnessed a sudden mood change in Wyatt after they had all ingested wild mushroom tea.

Justin Davis told police he returned to the flat to find Wyatt naked and covered from head to toe in blood.

He noticed an eyeball lying in the middle of the floor and saw Powell's mutilated body.

A lawyer representing Wyatt has claimed the wild mushrooms caused him to act in such a violent way and had not control over his actions.

‘My client was trying to silence the devil,’ said James Fallman.

‘I think he was having a psychotic fit based on the mushrooms he had.’ 

Wyatt has been charged with first degree murder and torture.

Prosecutors added the torture charge as Powell was still alive when his heart was removed.

More than $500,000 worth of medical equipment stolen from Florida Hospital last week may carry a dangerous disease.

Police issued a special warning Friday after the equipment was taken from the Center for Diagnostic Pathology at the hospital's main campus in Orlando.

Authorities warned a substance inside the equipment was so toxic, it could burn human skin.
The hospital was throwing out the equipment, but officials certainly did not want it stolen.

Now, published reports said the equipment was tossed because it was used to perform a brain biopsy on a man who died from a degenerative brain disease similar to mad cow disease.
The reports identified the disease as CJD, or Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, which officials described as fatal.
Police said the thieves used a truck to swipe the equipment. If you know anything about the theft, you should call Orlando police or 911.

Hazmat teams blow up mysterious smoking drum in Hollywood

After a mysterious smoking barrel closed a stretch of A1A in Hollywood into the night Monday, authorities blew the 55-gallon drum to bits. They still don’t know where it came from before it washed ashore over the weekend.

Hazmat teams do know this: Inside the dangerous drum percolated a cocktail of chemicals “from the sodium perchlorate family — extremely flammable,” Hollywood Fire Rescue division chief Mark Steele said Tuesday.

But before the detonation, Broward sheriff’s bomb squad and hazmat units tried to wrestle with the hissing container and analyze its contents.

The saga started when city crews lugged the drum to a beach public works complex at 112 N. Ocean Dr. in Hollywood.

But when workers arrived Monday, it was smoking.

The day-long effort to remove the drum grew complicated in the afternoon when it broke apart and spewed white smoke, Hollywood fire officials said. That’s when the county teams were summoned.

“When you have something like that, you can’t just throw it in the back of the pickup truck and get going,” Steele said. “Our main goal was to get it out of there safely.”

The surrounding road was closed more than eight hours while crews worked on the container.

After the experts determined what was inside, they destroyed it.

“We disintegrated it. There is no more remnant,” Steele said. “No more investigation.”

But the mystery hasn’t gone away.

Said Steele: “The truth is, we might never know where it came from.”

Police Investigate After Naked Man Shot With Stun Gun Dies

Police on Tuesday were investigating the death of a man they shot with a stun gun during a confrontation after he allegedly tried to bite another man while naked.

The incident began when officers from the West Miami Police and Miami-Dade Police departments responded to the 2300 block of Southwest 58th Avenue Thursday afternoon to a call of a completely naked man exhibiting bizarre behavior, Miami-Dade Police spokesman Alvaro Zabaleta said.

Zabaleta said the caller told police that the man was trying to bite his neck and tear his clothes off.

When the officers arrived, they encountered George Salgado, who became aggressive and violent towards the officers, Zabaleta said.

The officers used their "Electronic Control Device" on Salgado and were able to restrain him, Zabaleta said. Salgado was taken to Larkin Community Hospital under the Baker Act, where he died early Friday morning.

Zabaleta said the autopsy hasn't been conducted, so the exact cause of death is unknown. The death is being investigated by the Miami-Dade Homicide Bureau, Zabaleta said.

An attorney for Salgado's family claims the 21-year-old was shot with a stun gun "numerous times" and "severely beaten by West Miami police officers."

Attorney Jeffrey Norkin says Salgado was on LSD but was unarmed, and that 10 police officers were on the scene when Salgado was arrested.

"Laughable, it's a joke, they could have easily taken this young man down peacefully with the safety of all involved," Norkin said.

Reached by phone Tuesday, West Miami Police Chief Nelson Andreu said he would neither confirm nor deny the allegation about his officers beating the subject.

"I cannot comment on that, that is part of the investigation being done by the Miami-Dade Police," he said, when asked about the investigation.

Norkin and parents Jorge Salgado and Barbara Alfaro spoke about the incident during a news conference Tuesday morning.

"My son was a very sweet child...loved his family, always said it to his dad, he made sure everybody knew he loved them," Alfaro said. "He was a beautiful person."

Norkin said the family intends to file a lawsuit in federal court and is asking the State Attorney's Office to prosecute the officers involved.

"He didn't die, he was brutally beaten and electrocuted," uncle Rafael Alfaro said.

The Tweet That Begins the Zombie Apocalypse
By Alexis Madrigal

This is not the kind of Tweet you want to see from a feed that describes itself as "an automated Twitter feed provided by the Illini-Alert System" that is "not actively monitored by a human being." In essence, we have a robot reporting to us that some kind of hazardous material -- what, we don't know and can't discover -- has been released within a biotechnology research center. The Institute for Genomic Biology has a wide variety of research programs including stuff like "host-microbe systems."

For 52 minutes, that was all the information that was available. Then, two tweets came in fairly quick succession. The first said that the "spill" was "contained within the building." The second said that the building had been safely evacuated and "The fire department is on scene."

We still don't know what happened, though I'm pretty sure that this will turn out to be a routine situation. (Not 100 percent: I called the campus police and they said they had "no more information" than what went out on the alert system.) BUT, whoa, this really sounds like the opening line of an updated version of the post-apocalyptic novel World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War or a plot point in Colson Whitehead's Zone One. There's something chilling about, "Escape area if able to do so." Escape? From what? And why wouldn't I be able to? WHATS HAPPENING?!?!

Ok, sorry. Carry on. I'm sure zombies aren't closing in on Chicago or anywhere else.

UPDATE 9:28am: @IlliniAlert reports that everything is OK: "The hazardous materials release at the Institute of Genomic Biology has been mitigated and is no longer a threat. IGB will be open tomorrow."

Thanks to Geoff Manaugh, aka BLDGBLOG, for alerting me to this situation and ruining my night of sleep.

Girlfriend: MacArthur causeway attacker Rudy Eugene was drugged — or cursed

By Nadege Green



Rudy Eugene
On the Saturday morning before he would make headlines for chewing off a man’s face –– before he would come to be known tragically as the “Miami Zombie”–– Rudy Eugene held his Bible and kissed his girlfriend goodbye.
Eugene’s on-again, off-again girlfriend said he woke her up at 5:30 a.m. to say he was going to meet with a “homeboy.” She said she found it strange he was rummaging the closet so early in morning. He didn’t name the friend or say where he was going.

He planted a kiss on her lips and said, “I love you.”

Shortly after, he left the central Broward apartment he shared with her.

“I told him be safe and I love you too. When he walked out the door I closed it, locked it and went back to sleep,” said the girlfriend, who spoke to The Miami Herald on Wednesday but asked that her name not be disclosed. She said that she thought it unusual that he was leaving the house so early, but didn’t press him on it.

An hour after he left, Eugene called her cell phone. “He called me and told me his car broke down. He said, “I’ll be home, but I’m going to be a little late. Then he said, I’m going to call you right back.” That was the last time Eugene’s girlfriend heard from him.

Around noon Saturday, she said she felt uneasy. She got into her car to search for Eugene, thinking he might still be stranded somewhere. She drove through North Miami and Miami Gardens, familiar neighborhoods Eugene frequented to visit with friends and family.

“I was worried. I couldn’t do anything. I just kept calling the phone,” she said. “I left messages saying, ‘Rudy, call me, I’m really worried.’”

She said Eugene never told her where he was going that morning, and she was surprised to hear reports that he’d been in South Beach in the hours before he attacked a homeless man, Ronald Poppo.

As a matter of fact, she said, the previous day he told her he didn’t want to go to South Beach because of the heavy police presence for Urban Beach Week. Eugene, who had been arrested in the past for possession of marijuana, told her he didn’t want to get arrested.

By Saturday evening she still had not heard from the man she calls “my baby, my heart.” She turned on the TV to watch the late night news and heard an unreal story: A nude man near the Miami Herald building pounced on a homeless man, chewing off his face. The man with pieces of flesh hanging from his teeth was shot dead by police.

“I thought to myself, ‘Oh my God, that’s crazy,’ she said. “I didn’t know that it was Rudy.”

All day Sunday she placed phone calls to friends asking if they’d seen Eugene and again she searched North Dade streets for her boyfriend.

At 11 a.m. Monday she got the call from a member of Eugene’s family.

The caller shouted terrible news into the phone: “Rudy’s dead, Rudy’s dead.”

“I immediately started to scream,’’ she said. “I don’t know when I hung up the phone, I was hysterical.”

But it was not until the afternoon, when she left her home to grieve with the rest of Eugene’s family in North Miami Beach, that she heard even worse news: The man everyone was calling the Miami Zombie was her boyfriend.

Her reaction: Utter disbelief. “That’s not Rudy, that’s not Rudy,” she remembered saying aloud in shock.

“I’ll never be the same,” she said.

The man being depicted by the media as a “face eater” or a “monster” is not the man she knew, she said. He smoked marijuana often, though had recently said he wanted to quit, but he didn’t use stronger recreational drugs and even refused to take over-the-counter medication for simple ailments like headaches, she said. He was sweet and well-mannered, she said.

Eugene’s girlfriend has her own theory on what happened that day. She believes Eugene was drugged unknowingly. The only other explanation, she said, was supernatural — that someone put a Vodou curse on him. The girlfriend, who unlike Eugene is not Haitian, said she has never believed in Vodou, until now.

“I don’t know how else to explain this,” she said.

She and Eugene met in 2007. While in traffic on a Miami street, Eugene pulled up next to her car and motioned for her to roll down her window.

She did. “I thought he was cute. I shouted out my number to him and he called me right then. We clicked immediately.”

Their five year- relationship hit rocky points over the years, and they would separate for months at a time, then reunite again. She said their problems were mostly “communication issues.”

She said Eugene worked at a car wash and wanted to own his own business some day.

During their time together, she said, Eugene would sit on the bed or on the couch in the evenings with her to read from his Bible. He carried it him just about everywhere he went, she said, and often cited verses to friends and family.

“If someone was lost or didn’t know God, he would tell them about him,’’ she said. “He was a believer of God.”

She cries often, she said. Eugene’s clothes and shoes are still in her closet.

“Something happened out of the ordinary that day. I don’t want him to be labeled the Miami Zombie,” she said. “He was a person. I don’t want him to go down like that.”

He was never violent around her, she said.

But according to police records, Eugene became violent at least once in his past and was arrested on battery charges. In 2004, he threatened his mother and smashed furniture during a domestic dispute, according to records from the North Miami Beach Police Department.

The police report says Eugene “took a fighting stand, balled his hands into a fist” and threatened one of the officers who responded.

Police had to use a Taser to subdue him.“Thank God you’re here, he would have killed me,” Eugene’s mother, Ruth Charles, told officers, the police report says. She told the officers that before they arrived, her son had told her, “I’ll put a gun to your head and kill you.”

On Wednesday, Charles said that despite the incident, she and her son had a warm relationship.

“I’m his first love...he’s a nice kid...he was not a delinquent,” she told Miami Herald news partner CBS-4 at her Miami Gardens home.

Charles told the station she was speaking up for the first time to defend her dead son.

“Everybody says that he was a zombie, but I know he’s not a zombie; he’s my son,” she said.

She said the man who ate another human being’s face was just not the son she knew.

“I don’t know what they injected in him to turn him into the person who did what he did,” she said, making the motion of someone putting a syringe into the crook of her arm.

A friend of Eugene’s since they were teenagers told The Herald on Wednesday that Eugene had been troubled in recent years.

Joe Aurelus said Eugene told him he wanted to stop smoking pot, and that friends were texting Eugene Bible verses.

“I was just with him two weeks ago,”’ he said. They were at a friend’s house watching a movie and Eugene had a Bible in his hand.

“He was going through a lot with his family,” Aurelus said, and jumping from job to job.

“Rudy was battling the devil.”

Miami Herald staff writers Elinor J. Brecher and Scott Hiaasen contributed to this report.

Maryland man charged with killing, eating man's brain, heart

A 21-year-old Morgan State University student told investigators that he ate the heart and portions of the brain of a man whose dismembered remains were found in his Joppa home, according to a grisly account from the Harford County Sheriff's Office.

The arrest of Alexander Kinyua came almost a week after Kujoe Bonsafo Agyei-Kodie, 37, went missing, and followed a search of the home the two men apparently shared in the 500 block of Terrapin Terrace in Joppatowne early Wednesday morning, police said.

Kinyua, an electrical engineering student who until January was involved in the ROTC program at Morgan, was ordered held without bail at a court appearance Thursday afternoon.

Monica Worrell, a spokeswoman for the Harford County Sheriff's Office, said today that Agyei-Kodie had been reported missing, but information collected by detectives "didn't pass the smell test." On Monday, police released a public appeal for help in locating him.

Late Tuesday night, Antony Kinyua, notified police that his son, Kinyua's brother, had found what they believed were human remains in the basement of the house, according to charging documents. Upon their arrival, Jarrod Kinyua told police he found a human head and two human hands inside metal tins, under a blanket in the laundry room.

When he asked Alexander Kinyua about the remains, Jarrod Kinyua said his brother denied that they were human and said they were animal remains, according to charging documents. After calling his father, Antony Kinyua, downstairs, the pair discovered the remains had been moved and Alexander Kinyua was washing out the metal tins.

With a search and seizure warrant for the location, deputies were able to locate the head and hands on the main floor of the house, according to charging documents. They also interviewed Alexander Kinyua, who allegedly admitted that he had killed Agyei-Kodie by cutting him up with a knife and afterward, ingested his heart and portions of his brain.

Kinyua also directed police to Towne Baptist Church, in the 500 block of Trimble Road, to find the rest of the remains, which were found in a Dumpster on the property, according to charging documents.

The case comes on the heels of shocking incidents in cities like Miami, where a naked man believed to be high on bath salts ate another man's face, and New Jersey, where a man disemboweled himself and reportedly threw his intestines at police officers. Police there say they aren't sure whether the man, Wayne Carter, was on drugs or suffering from mental illness.

At his first court appearance, defense attorney Lynne McChrystal requested that reasonable bail to be set in the case, adding that Kinyua has been in Harford County for six years and in Maryland for nine years. He is self-employed and performs consulting work, she added.

Upon questioning by Judge John L. Dunnigan, Kinyua said that all of his family members resided in Maryland and he was originally from Nairobi, Kenya.

Assistant State's Attorney Trenna Manners cited those out-of-country ties, as well as the "grisly" nature of the crime, when she asked for Kinyua to be held without bail.

The charges are not Kinyua's first in recent weeks, and a previous arrest and Kinyua's online postings point to a troubled man. In January, he was disenrolled from the ROTC program after two-and-a-half-years of participation, said Lt. Col. James Lewis, a professor of military service who oversees the program. Officials said it followed a disciplinary incident.

Then on May 20, Kinyua, who otherwise does not have a criminal record in Maryland, was charged with first-degree assault and reckless endangerment in Baltimore in connection with an incident that allegedly occurred May 19 at the Thurgood Marshall apartments, according to court records.

In that case, according to police, Kinyua "randomly" attacked another Morgan State student in a doorway of the apartment complex with a baseball bat, then fled into a nearby wooded area. The victim, listed as Joshua Ceasar, suffered fractures to his skull, arm, shoulder, as well as blindness to his left eye. The first responding officer saw Ceasar stumbling toward her, with blood coming from his forehead, and the officer noted a large amount of blood in the doorway.

Kinyua was ordered held on $220,000 bond in that case, and university officials said the school was in the process of expelling him.

On May 25, what appeared to be a plea from his parents for help paying Kinyua's legal fees in the case from was posted on the website Mwakilishi.com, a Kenyan news site. The post, which has since been removed, said Kinyua had been arrested for "being involved in a fight in his dormitory room at Morgan State University."

The online plea says, "In order to get him the best defense possible, we need to secure an attorney who will take his case and leave no stone unturned."

It also states a fundraising event was scheduled at the International Christian Community Church on Sunday. He was scheduled to appear at a preliminary hearing in that case June 19.

In the days prior to the arrest, he had posted several strange messages on his Facebook page, in all capital letters. In two of the posts, he uploaded "QR Codes," bar code images that when scanned with a smart phone lead to a web page. They both led to the following message about the "destruction of the black family":

"PROJECT CRACK CODE COUNTERING THE DESTRUCTION OF THE HUMAN FAMILY SPREAD THE MESSAGE OF CREATION SUPPORT CRACK TEAM STAY TUNED FOR MORE INFORMATION ON SURVIVAL OF THE HUMAN FAMILY."

In another, he wrote about campus shootings and "death cults":

"HEAR ME OUT HBCU'ERS: ARE YOU STRONG ENOUGH TO ENDURE RITUAL HBCU MASS HUMAN SACRIFICES AROUND THE COUNTRY AND STILL BE ABLE TO FUNCTION AS HUMAN BEINGS? IT'S BEEN ALL TOO TRAGIC WITH THE DUAL UNIVERSITY SHOOTINGS AT VIRGINIA TECH, AND OTHER PAST UNIVERSITY KILLINGS ACROSS THE COUNTRY. NOW FOR A TWIST: ETHNIC CLEANSING IS THE POLICY, STRATEGY AND TACTICS THAT WILL AFFECT YOU, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY IN THE COMING MONTHS. THIS IS THE BRUTAL BASIS, AN EVIL & TERRIFYING METHOD OF THIS DEATH CULTS."

Jasmine Bloomfield said Kinyua was known around campus – "he was always all around campus involved with things" – but often acted strangely. He was "always in his own little world, preaching everywhere he went and talking about how he was writing a book." Once, she said, he got up during a screening of a documentary and started yelling about the struggle of black people.

But his page also shows Kinyua in the fall smiling at a campus event for student organizations, showing off a jacket for the National Society of Pershing Rifles, which according to its website is a fraternity for students in Reserve Office Training Corps program.

Late Wednesday, a man who answered a phone at the number listed said Antony and Beatrice Kinyua were "resting," and that the family did not wish to speak to the media without an attorney present.

The Zombie Apocalypse Isn't Coming, the CDC Says

A spate of bizarre acts of cannibalism in the last week have many people wondering whether to be afraid for their own flesh. The populous' collective curiosity has even driven "zombie apocalypse" up to the No. 2 spot on Google's list of trending search terms. But don't worry: according to government scientists, the zombies are not coming for you.

The flesh-eating living dead don't actually exist, said a spokesman for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). "CDC does not know of a virus or condition that would reanimate the dead (or one that would present zombie-like symptoms)," agency spokesman David Daigle told The Huffington Post.

But what prompted the official reassurance?

The questions started after an attack in Miami on Saturday, when Rudy Eugene, 31, was shot and killed by police while hungrily devouring the face of a homeless man. Eugene, who may have been high on "bath salts " at the time of his vicious attack, seemed impervious to the bullets entering his naked body until the moment he collapsed, police said.

Then, on Tuesday, Alexander Kinyua, a 21-year-old student in Maryland, admitted to murdering his roommate and then eating his heart and parts of his brain. The cannibal's motives have not been explained. [Video: '5 Things I Learned from Living with Cannibals']

Meanwhile, Canadian police are seeking Luka Rocco Magnotta, a low-budget porn actor who allegedly killed and dismembered a young man, and then ate flesh from the corpse. He packaged and mailed other body parts to political offices in Ottawa.

Okay, zombies may not really exist, but clearly the world has troubles enough as it is.

WACO, Texas -- Police in Waco arrested 22-year-old Michael Daniel Monday after they say he ate a dog.
Family members called police on June 14th, saying Daniel assaulted people at the home, chased a neighbor and started barking and growling.
Witnesses say Daniel grabbed the family dog, beat and strangled it...then started to eat it.

The dog died at the home.

Daniel is believed to have been on a bad trip from ingesting "K-2," a synthetic drug.
He was taken to the hospital and now faces a felony charge for animal cruelty.


What is going on with this sudden outbreak of synthetic drug related acts of zombie stuff? Apparently , K-2 is a form of synthetic cannabis and is legally sold in smoke shops, it's called "Spice".

Face Eating Attack In China: 'Dong,' Drunken Bus Driver, Allegedly Bites Woman 'Du's' Nose, Lips

A woman has been hospitalized in China after a drunken bus driver allegedly attacked her and began gnawing on her face.

The woman, identified as "Du," was driving near a bus station in Wenzhou on Tuesday when a man ran into the street, blocking her car. The man, a bus driver identified as "Dong," allegedly climbed onto the hood of Du's car and began hitting the windshield, according to the Malaysia Chronicle.

Du got out of the car, and allegedly Dong tackled her to the ground, where he began chewing on her face, according to Shanghai Daily. Witnesses say they attempted to pull Dong off of her, but were unable to do so.

Dong was ultimately stopped by police, What's On Dalian reports. Officers say he had drunk around 1.75 ml of strong liquor prior to the incident.

Doctors say Dong did enough damage to the woman's face that she will need plastic surgery to repair her nose and lips.

LA MAN ARRESTED IN FACE-BITING ATTACK

A Louisiana man is in jail after another reported face-biting attack. The incidents have been getting much attention after police in Miami shot and killed a man, said to be high on drugs, spotted devouring the face of a homeless person on the side of an expressway.

Police in Scott, Louisiana, near Lafayette, have Carl Jacquneaux in custody for allegedly ending an argument with his neighbor by digging in with his teeth…

(Thomas) “He bit a chunk of the victim’s face off.”

Assistant Chief Kert Thomas says it’s strange…

(Thomas) “Very unusual. It’s not something we have every day.”

Attacks like these, and the one in Miami have sparked jokes about a “zombie apocalypse”, but after it was learned the Miami face biter had been high on a legal street drug known to cause hallucinations, police have been warning the public that people on that drug can be very dangerous.

Subway Riders Shocked as Fight Over Last Seat Leads to Flesh Eating
 Neetzan Zimmerman
Think your commute is rough?

A 28-year-old man from the southern Chinese city of Guangzhou had large chunks of his arm chewed off by a 67-year-old retiree after refusing to give up his seat.

The retiree accused the younger passenger of disrespecting his elders and reportedly began punching him, causing other commuters to scatter. The altercation escalated until the older man started gnawing on the younger man's body, quickly drawing blood.

The entire horrific scene was caught on camera and uploaded to various video sites (YouTube has since removed its copy, citing a violation of its policy against graphic and shocking content).

According to Sina.com, the men were brought together to the police station, where they apologized for their behavior and "agreed to pay their own medical costs."

Neither will be charged with a crime.

From June:

A New York woman, allegedly high on “bath salts”, was killed after police tasered her. Onlookers photographed Pamela McCarthy, who was attacking her three-year-old son.

The 35-year-old went into cardiac arrest after a run in with state troopers outside her apartment in Munnsville on Tuesday. The police were called to the scene at 7.45pm with reports that McCarthy was punching and choking her toddler and trying to strangle her pit-bull. A neighbor then photographed her running towards her terrified son, who sought refuge with his father, Jason Williams.

McCarthy’s attack is just one in a spate of violent incidents reported across the United States involving the drugs “bath salts”, a synthetic drug, known as “the new LSD”.

Last month, Rudy Eugene, who was believed to be on “bath salts” chewed off homeless man, Ronald Poppo’s face, in Miami. In Louisiana, Carl Jacquneaux also bit off a piece of his neighbor’s cheek. Earlier this week a North Miami man stripped naked and exposed himself to a three-year-old girl while on the drug.

In fact these attacks, thought to be the blame of this legal drug, are becoming so prevalent that the media is now labeling them under the term “Zombie Apocalypse”.

A neighbor who witnessed McCarthy’s attack told NewsChannel 9 WSYR “She was... just running back and forth around the street and she got a hold of one of her dogs and she was rolling around on the ground with her legs wrapped around it - she was strangling the dog.”

Another said: 'She was definitely on something. Who does that?'

When the police arrived McCarthy was described as “violently combative” and growled at the police, and even tried to bite one of the officers.

State trooper Christopher Budlong tried to subdue her using pepper spray, but it had no effect. He then used a taser on the woman but was unable to handcuff her. She was then taken into custody and later went into cardiac arrest.

Her boyfriend Williams said she had a history of drug abuse but he was shocked by her behavior. Their son luckily escaped the attack with minor injuries and is now in the custody of William’s mother.

He said, “I told her mom, "She needs help'," Williams told WSYR. 'Everyone says to get rid of her because I tell all mean stories. I got nothing good to say. I love her…love her to death…then I seen that.”

WASHINGTON -- "The zombies are coming!" the Homeland Security Department says.
Tongue firmly in cheek, the government urged citizens Thursday to prepare for a zombie apocalypse, part of a public health campaign to encourage better preparation for genuine disasters and emergencies. The theory: If you're prepared for a zombie attack, the same preparations will help during a hurricane, pandemic, earthquake or terrorist attack.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency hosted an online seminar for its Citizen Corps organization to help emergency planners better prepare their communities for disaster. The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention last year first launched a zombie apocalypse social media campaign for the same purposes.

Emergency planners were encouraged to use the threat of zombies -- the flesh-hungry, walking dead -- to encourage citizens to prepare for disasters. Organizers also noted the relative proximity to Halloween.

Among the government's recommendations were having an emergency evacuation plan and a change of clothes, plus keeping on hand fresh water, extra medications and emergency flashlights.
A few of the government's suggestions tracked closely with some of the 33 rules for dealing with zombies popularized in the 2009 movie "Zombieland," which included "always carry a change of underwear" and "when in doubt, know your way out."

And this from two weeks ago:

Quote
Richard Cimino Jr. is accused of gnawing on a woman’s head while screaming like an animal in Hawley, Pennsylvania, according to state police.

The bizarre incident started when Cimino Jr. reportedly parked his car behind a home and stripped down to his underwear. Cimino Jr. tried to break into the home, but was unsuccessful.  He successfully entered an unoccupied home, went to the second floor and jumped out of a window.

Bleeding profusely, Cimino Jr. encountered two females on the street and allegedly tackled one of the women. Police claim that Cimino then began to gnaw on the victim’s head while screaming.

Fortunately, both women escaped and called the police.

Police arrived and found Cimino Jr. lying in the road, covered in blood and displaying “delusional and confrontational behavior,” reports CBS Philadelphia.

Police tased Ciminio Jr., but he was still able to punch an EMT, who tried to treat him. Police were able to finally subdue Cimino Jr., who was taken to Geisinger Community Medical Center.

At this time, police do not know Cimino Jr. was under the influence of drugs or bath salts, but he is facing charges for aggravated assault, indecent exposure and burglary, among others.

Zombies? In British Columbia? Are you serious?

Well, sorta. The threat of zombie attack is a popular phenomenon around the globe and with it comes the message to "be prepared". Earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, landslides, avalanches, interface fires, severe storms and hazardous material spills are some of the dangers that could threaten lives and cause extensive damage in British Columbia. And while the chance of zombies a-knockin' on your door is pretty slim, we do believe that if you're ready for zombies, you're ready for any disaster.

Follow along with us this week as we provide you with an arsenal of zombie preparedness tips, videos, photos and even some advice from a zombie-attack survivor.

Zombie Preparedness Tips
Tip #1: Ensure your gas tank is always half full.
Tip #2: Have emergency kits for your home, office and car.
Tip #3: Have a plan!

Facts and Advice
Know the risk in your area. Other than zombie attack, your region may be susceptible to flooding, earthquakes or tsunamis. Find out and get prepared.
Devise a plan. When zombies attack, or wildfires strike, you'll have to act fast. Your plan should include:
Safe exits from your home and neighbourhood;
A meeting place to reunite with family; and
Pre-determined out-of-province contacts so friends and family will know you're okay.
Get an emergency kit. There's no time to collect supplies when zombies are shuffling around your neighbourhood! Make sure to assemble grab-and-go kits for your home, office and vehicle. They should contain supplies for a minimum of 72 hours.
May was chosen for Zombie Awareness Month because cult classics like "Night of the Living Dead" and "Dawn of the Dead" are set in spring.
Last year, the US Center for Disease Control created a graphic novel, Preparedness 101: Zombie Pandemic, that demonstrates the important of emergency preparedness.

Marines, police prep for mock zombie invasion

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Move over vampires, goblins and haunted houses, this kind of Halloween terror aims to shake up even the toughest warriors: An untold number of so-called zombies are coming to a counterterrorism summit attended by hundreds of Marines, Navy special ops, soldiers, police, firefighters and others to prepare them for their worst nightmares.

"This is a very real exercise, this is not some type of big costume party," said Brad Barker, president of Halo Corp, a security firm hosting the Oct. 31 training demonstration during the summit at a 44-acre Paradise Point Resort island on a San Diego bay. "Everything that will be simulated at this event has already happened, it just hasn't happened all at once on the same night. But the training is very real, it just happens to be the bad guys we're having a little fun with."

Hundreds of military, law enforcement and medical personnel will observe the Hollywood-style production of a zombie attack as part of their emergency response training.

In the scenario, a VIP and his personal detail are trapped in a village, surrounded by zombies when a bomb explodes. The VIP is wounded and his team must move through the town while dodging bullets and shooting back at the invading zombies. At one point, some members of the team are bit by zombies and must be taken to a field medical facility for decontamination and treatment.

"No one knows what the zombies will do in our scenario, but quite frankly no one knows what a terrorist will do," Barker said. "If a law enforcement officer sees a zombie and says, 'Freeze, get your hands in the air!' What's the zombie going to do? He's going to moan at you. If someone on PCP or some other psychotic drug is told that, the truth is he's not going to react to you."

The keynote speaker beforehand will be a retired top spook — former CIA Director Michael Hayden.

"No doubt when a zombie apocalypse occurs, it's going to be a federal incident, so we're making it happen," Barker said. Since word got out about the exercise, they've had calls from "every whack job in the world" about whether the U.S. government is really preparing for a zombie event.

Called "Zombie Apocalypse," the exercise follows the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's campaign launched last year that urged Americans to get ready for a zombie apocalypse, as part of a catchy, public health message about the importance of emergency preparedness.

The Homeland Security Department jumped on board last month, telling citizens if they're prepared for a zombie attack, they'll be ready for real-life disasters like a hurricane, pandemic, earthquake or terrorist attack. A few suggestions were similar to a few of the 33 rules for dealing with zombies popularized in the 2009 movie "Zombieland," which included "always carry a change of underwear" and "when in doubt, know your way out."

San Diego-based Halo Corp. founded by former military special ops and intelligence personnel has been hosting the annual counterterrorism summit since 2006.

The five-day Halo counterterrorism summit is an approved training event by the Homeland Security Grant Program and the Urban Areas Security Initiative, which provide funds to pay for the coursework on everything from the battleground tactics to combat wounds to cybersecurity. The summit has a $1,000 registration fee and runs Oct. 29-Nov 2.

Conferences attended by government officials have come under heightened scrutiny following an inspector general's report on waste and abuse at a lavish 2010 Las Vegas conference that led to the resignation of General Services Administrator Martha Johnson. The Las Vegas conference featured a clown, a mind-reader and a rap video by an employee who made fun of the spending.

Joe Newman, spokesman of the watchdog organization Project on Government Oversight, said he does not see the zombie exercise as frivolous.

"We obviously are concerned about any expenditure that might seem frivolous or a waste of money but if they tie things together, there is a lesson there," Newman said. "Obviously we're not expecting a zombie apocalypse in the near future, but the effects of what might happen in a zombie apocalypse are probably similar to the type of things that happen in natural disasters and manmade disasters. They're just having fun with it. We don't have any problems with it as a teaching point."

Defense analyst Loren Thompson agreed.

"The defining characteristics of zombies are that they're unpredictable and resilient. That may be a good way to prepare for what the Pentagon calls asymmetric warfare," Thompson said.

Organizers can also avoid the pitfalls of using a mock enemy who could be identified by nationality, race or culture — something that could potentially be seen as offensive.
"I can think of a couple of countries where the local leaders are somewhat zombie-like," he joked. "But nobody is going to take this personally."

Derailment sends chemical tank cars into NJ creek

PAULSBORO, N.J. (AP) — Authorities say only one of the derailed train cars in southern New Jersey has leaked hazardous material.

The Department of Environmental Protection says the car leaked vinyl chloride as a gas and all of it has since dissipated.

The chemical can cause nausea and breathing problems.

Several tanker cars derailed in the accident Friday morning on a rail bridge in Paulsboro and toppled into a creek. Part of the bridge has buckled but the full extent of the damage is not yet known.

Officials at Underwood-Memorial Hospital say 11 people have been transported with complaints related to the derailment and five more arrived on their own. The hospital's communication's office says all are believed to have complained of having respiratory problems.

Residents in three towns were told to stay inside after the derailment.

The cause of the accident hasn't been determined.

And thanks to their new zombie apocalypse simulator, we can confirm what we already knew: Stay out of cities if you don't want to get infected.

The researchers will present their study, "The Statistical Mechanics of Zombies," later this week, and reportedly prove that the best place to escape should zombies take over is the northern Rockies.

DC goes first, right?

Wherever you click your mouse goes first. It actually takes a long time... The map gets boring after a few days elapse, but the science behind it is fascinating. It's always an insane global pandemic that happens instantly in the movies, right? But, yeah, when you think about the vectors... Zombies are on foot, there's a certain kill per bite ratio to consider that'll slow them down as well. So wherever you click, depending on how populated the area, it's a slow bubble that takes days to get out of the region, and a month to spread throughout most of the US.

Factor in quarantine and containment attempts on the federal, state, and local level...as well as vigilante quarantine efforts, and you'd have plenty of time to escape as long as you weren't at ground zero.

I'm not clicking because I'm swamped with shit.

Are we assuming slow zombies here or fast zombies?

There are sliders to adjust how quickly a zombie can walk a mile and the kill to bite ratio.

The Chesapeake Bay is a very good natural barrier if you can beat them across the bridge.

So we blow up the Bay Bridge once we're on the Eastern shore, yes?

I refuse to speed them up past TWD speed, which I like to call Fitness Romero.

The kill to bite ratio, though, is something I upped... My fundamental problem with the zombie apocalypse is the number of people they would naturally kill and/or maim. So if a horde tears someone apart and devours them, they aren't getting back up again. Probably half the deaths in TWD are on the same level as an animal attack, so they're not going to get up again.

And then we have (especially something routinely seen in TWD), zombies who destroy themselves by blundering into natural obstacles... Factor in all the zombies who get stuck in basements, holes, cars, prison cells, or stumble off cliffs, balconies, etc. Every three episodes or so we see a zombie take a plunge because they're stupid. Assume that's happening everywhere, so a healthy percentage of zombies are tumbling into construction sites and are then trapped forever.

Throw in our arguments from before -- if every survivor is killing roughly 50 zombies a year...

Nothing appears to happen on the map.

Ah... you need to keep the kill-bite ratio below 1.
