Whether the drug was involved in Saturday’s macabre violence has yet to be confirmed by autopsy results on the attacker, but Dr. Paul Adams an emergency room doctor at Jackson Memorial Hospital said he found similarities in the behaviour found in other users.

Miami man shot dead eating a man's face may have been on LSD variant
Witness describes incident as 'really, really horrific' as police and doctors theorize that attacker was on drug called bath salts
A man shot dead by police as he ate the face of another man may have been under the influence of a potent variant of LSD called bath salts, investigators believe.
Homicide detectives looking into Saturday's gruesome incident on a Miami causeway suspect that Rudy Eugene, 31, may have overdosed before chewing on his victim's lips, ears, eyes and nose and ripping off strips of flesh with his teeth.
An eyewitness said that Eugene was "like a zombie", tearing off almost all of his victim's face and growling like a wild animal at an officer who shot him.
Detective William Moreno of the Miami police department said homicide detectives were trying to piece together the events leading up to the attack. Eugene, he said, continued to chew on his victim's face even after he was shot, and it took five further shots to disable and kill him.
Security video from the adjacent Miami Herald building showed the victim writhing in agony after Eugene was dead.
Larry Vega, the cyclist who called police, gave a grisly account of the encounter and said he may seek counselling to help him get over what he saw.
"The guy was like tearing him to pieces with his mouth, so I told him, 'Get off!'" he told WSVN in an interview. "He just kept eating the other guy away, like ripping his skin. The police officer came over, told him several times to get off, and an officer climbed over the divider and got in front of him and said: 'Get off!'
"He told him several times and the guy just stood his head up like that with a piece of flesh in his mouth and growled. The guy, he was like a zombie, blood dripping. It was intense.
"The closest thing I've seen to it? The Walking Dead. I never thought I would see someone eating someone. It was really, really horrific."
the start of the zombie Apocalypse?
Where have you been, in a coma?
It's like this, the victim was a stock broker that set the perpetrator up with some facebook stock on opening day.
