‘Zombie Apocalypse’ Strikes Louisiana: Carl Jacquneaux Arrested After Biting Chunk from Man’s Face
The ‘zombie apocalypse’ has spread to Louisiana.
In a gruesome attack reminiscent of Rudy Eugene’s face-eating horror show in Miami, a Lafayette Parish man is behind bars after allegedly biting a chunk out of another man’s face during a weekend attack.
KATC reports that 43-year-old Carl Jacquneaux of Scott knew his victim, Todd Credeur, and was upset over a domestic issue. Credeur said he was working in his yard when Jacquneaux arrived at his house and viciously assaulted him. The crazed attacker bit Credeur on his face, tearing a chunk of flesh from just below his eye.
“During the attack, the suspect bit a chunk of the victim’s face off,” Scott Assistant Police Chief, Kert Thomas confirmed.
Horrified, Credeur sprayed a can of wasp killer in Jacquneaux’s face to repel the bloodthirsty ‘zombie.’ It worked; the assailant left and went to another acquaintance’s home in nearby Carencro where he held the man up at knifepoint while stealing a gun.
Police arrived shortly thereafter and arrested Jacquneaux.
“Very unusual, it’s not something we see everyday,” Thomas told KATC.
Jacquneaux, who is being held in the Lafayette Parish Jail on a $312,500 bond, has been charged with aggravated burglary, simple battery of the infirm, violation of probation, aggravated second degree battery and violation of protective orders.
Credeur has been released from a local hospital and is recovering at home.
Jacquneaux’s zombie-like behavior could be due to drugs. A friend told KATC that she believed he was using bath salts, which can cause feelings of invincibility as well as paranoia, hallucinations, convulsions and psychotic episodes.
It is believed that ‘Miami cannibal’ Rudy Eugene, shot dead by Miami police over Memorial Day weekend while chewing off the face of an elderly homeless man, was under the influence of bath salts.
The drug is also being blamed for another episode in which Brandon De Leon, a 21-year-old homeless Florida man, growled at and tried to bite a police officer. De Leon was arrested in North Miami Beach on Saturday.
These latest violent attacks are the latest in a wave of what many have dubbed the ‘2012 zombie apocalypse.’
After the Miami incident, Wayne Carter, a 43-year-old from Hackensack, New Jersey, disemboweled himself and threw his own skin and intestines at police officers as they forced entry into his home. Two cans of pepper spray did nothing to stop Carter; a SWAT team had to be called in to aid in his arrest.
Then came the most horrific news of the whole “zombie” wave: up in Montreal, a kitten-killing gay porn star named Luka Rocco Magnotta murdered a 33-year-old Chinese student named Lin Jun, beheaded him, cut him into pieces, sodomized the dead torso, ate pieces of his body, fed some of it to a hungry dog and mailed the victim’s hand and foot to the headquarters of Canada’s two main political parties. Magnotta, who was captured in Berlin, Germany on Monday, filmed the whole grisly murder and its aftermath and posted it online.
Last Thursday, Maryland police arrested Alexander Kinyua, who confessed to killing his roommate, cutting him into pieces, and eating his heart and brains.
Also on Thursday, New York police arrested Staten Island pizzeria owner Thomas Tomasello for biting off part of another man’s ear during a diner brawl.
That same day, the US government took the highly unusual step of issuing a statement denying the existence of zombies.
