Well, there goes that theory. The toxicology results are back, and the attacker had nothing in his system besides small amounts of marijuana.
L- Attacker Eugene Rudy; R - Victim Ronald Poppo
Please resume mild levels of panic at your earliest convenience.
On Wednesday, the official toxicology report was released to NBC Miami.
The medical examiner stated, "The department's toxicology laboratory has identified the active components of marijuana." They tested for all known street drugs, including known ingredients for bath salts, LSD, cocaine, meth, PCP, heroin, synthetic marijuana and prescription drug abuse. None of these were present, nor was there any trace of alcohol.
This gels with Eugene's past criminal record. Of his eight recorded arrests, four of them involved marijuana.
As far as the toxicology professionals are concerned, there was no mind-altering substance in Mr. Rudy's body that prompted the attack on Ronald Poppo.
