Shredded Bible - intact Quran found in Miami cannibal's car
The autopsy finding that Eugene had no human flesh in his stomach jibes with the crime-scene investigation, which found chunks of Poppo’s flesh on the ground, as if they had been spit out. The autopsy also revealed human flesh lodged between the teeth of Eugene, who did not have his two top front teeth, the law enforcement source said. Eugene is known to have lost his two front teeth in an accident as a child.
Police found a set of gold teeth in the pockets of his pants discarded on the causeway.
Poppo is recovering at Jackson Memorial Hospital, where a source told The Herald he has already undergone some skin grafts to help repair his mangled face. Photos of his face after the attack made their way to the Internet, fueling public curiosity in the case.
The torn-off skin from Poppo’s face, dead tissue that lay on the concrete sidewalk under the hot sun after the attack, could not be used to help reconstruct his face, the source said.
So far, Poppo has so far been unable to tell Miami detectives what happened.
The crime scene probe also found torn up pieces of a Bible — Eugene was religious and read the Bible regularly, his family and friends have said — scattered along the MacArthur Causeway. Detectives also impounded Eugene’s Chevrolet sedan, which had been towed from South Beach, and discovered several water bottles and a Quran.
