(Newser) – It's unlikely to make it into any "Visit Miami" promotional material, but the site where one man chewed off another's face last month has become the city's newest tourist attraction. The crime scene on the MacArthur Causeway off-ramp has been added to the "Mystery & Mayhem" bus tour conducted by a Miami-Dade College history professor, which includes stops at Al Capone's house, and the site of the attempted assassination of Franklin Roosevelt. "Horrible as it was, it is part of our history," the professor tells the South Florida Business Journal. “Currently, our tour takes us over the causeway right past the site, so this fits well."
