Face-Eating Victim Awake Ronald Poppo walking in hospital By Matt Cantor, Newser User Posted Jun 12, 2012 2:00 PM CDT 5 comments Comments This undated booking mug made available by the Miami-Dade Police Dept. shows Ronald Poppo. (AP Photo/Miami-Dade Police Dept., File) (Newser) – Ronald Poppo has lost his nose, his eyes are bandaged over, and he has scabs across most of his face—but he's "awake and alert," doctors say. A photo shown to reporters portrays Rudy Eugene's face-eating victim walking in the hospital with the staff's support, according to the AP. Poppo—the long-lost father of a New York woman—has been in the Miami hospital since the gruesome attack on May 26. Gawker has a photo of his bandaged face, but be warned, it's grisly.
