MIAMI, Florida — The longtime girlfriend of Rudy Eugene, the man accused of eating another man’s face over the weekend along side a Miami causeway, says that her boyfriend had something supernatural happen to him that day.

According to a Miami Herald.com report, the girlfriend, who does not want to be identified, told a Herald reporter that the acts committed by her boyfriend defy explanation.

The Miami Herald.com report states; “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.”

Eugene’s girlfriend says that he never acted violently against her and she does not want her boyfriend to be remembered as a crazed killer.

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