Poll: Has 'Zombie Apocalypse' Begun?

There have been two cannibalistic attacks in the last week.

Two recent cannibalistic attacks prompted the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to publicly state that, to their knowledge, zombies do not exist.

"CDC does not know of a virus or condition that would reanimate the dead (or one that would present zombie-like symptoms)," wrote agency spokesman David Daigle in an email to The Huffington Post.

On May 26, 31-year-old Rudy Eugene attacked a homeless man in Miami and ate about 75 percent of his face. Eugene's girlfriend told the Miami Herald that she believed Eugene, who is of Haitian descent, might have endured a vodou curse or been drugged.

She last saw Eugene at 5:30 a.m. when he left the apartment they shared carrying his bible and kissed her goodbye. By 2 p.m. he was naked on the Miami Causeway eating 65-year-old Ronald Poppo. Eugene was killed by police when he did not stop the attack after being ordered to.

Police have speculated that Eugene was under a drug-induced psychosis, possibly caused by "bath salts" or LSD. Friends and family say Eugene did not use hard drugs and the attack was totally out of character. CBS news has published a story, documenting what police know of Eugene's final hours before the attack.

On May 31, 21-year-old Alexander Kinyua told police he killed his roomate and ate his brain and heart. Kinyua had on May 20 randomly chased a fellow student with a baseball bat before running into nearby woods.

There have been other, intensely gruesome events recently. In New Jersey Wayne Carter, 43, stabbed himself 50 times when police came to his home. Carter also threw pieces of himself at officers.
