RadarOnline.com contacted the Miami Police Department and Detective Sanchez said "No one is supposed to release those photos. It is a leak. We have not released anything and it is still an investigation."
Det. Sanchez said they will open an investigation and said "it is illegal to take pictures of a crime scene; it is the Dale Earnhardt law that it is illegal to solicit payment for photos of a crime scene."
One photo was of the victim with his skin torn off his face, bloody and red, with his eyes out of place.
The second photo showed Rudy Eugene face down on the ground naked with blood pouring out of his back, the victim next to him in a green shirt with his head completely covered in blood, as two police officers stand over them.
A witness said a naked man who bit off parts of another man's face in Miami growled with pieces of flesh in his mouth before police fatally shot the attacker.
The victim, a homeless man who had not been identified, was in critical condition at Jackson Memorial Hospital with much of his face gone, his skin ripped off, nose bitten and eyes gouged, The Miami Herald reported.
Police identified the attacker as Rudy Eugene, 31.
During the Saturday afternoon attack near downtown Miami, the Herald said, an officer approached Eugene and told him to stop attacking the victim. Eugene continued chewing, even after the officer shot him once, and the officer fired several more shots at him, finally killing him, the newspaper said.
Witnesses said a woman who had seen the two men fighting flagged down a nearby police officer.
After an officer approached Eugene on a bike path near the causeway, witness Larry Vega told WSVN-TV, Miami, "The guy just stood ... with pieces of flesh in his mouth. And he growled."
WPLG-TV, Miami, said it remained unclear what prompted the attack.
Eugene married in 2005 but the marriage ended in divorce just over two years later.
"I wouldn't say he had mental problem but he always felt like people was against him. ... No one was for him, everyone was against him," his ex-wife told WPLG.
Eugene was arrested on a charge of battery when he was 16, and the charge was later dropped.
He was arrested seven other times in a five-year span on charges including misdemeanor battery, vending near a school and trespassing. Four other arrests involved marijuana, the Herald said.
Fraternal Order of Police President Armando Aguilar said Eugene had likely overdosed. Aguilar pointed to four cases when people on a type of LSD removed their clothes and became violent.
The Herald said police had also theorized Eugene could have been suffering "cocaine psychosis," which heats the body internally and causes people to strip naked to try to cool off.
An emergency room doctor at Jackson Memorial said the attack could have been induced by "bath salts," a synthetic stimulant named after the bathroom product it resembles.
Below is a recording of the police finding the men, at about 3:19 minutes into the surveillance, but it doesn't show much.
