In a "cosmetic surgery" procedure, a woman's buttocks were filled with flat-tire sealant, mineral oil and cement, and then sealed with super-glue by an apparently transgender woman, Oneal Ron Morris, claiming to be a doctor - Morris had never studied medicine. The victim had sought a curvier body and a larger bottom in her quest to find employment at a nightclub.
The fake doctor, who was born a man and identifies herself as a woman, according to police authorities, was arrested last Friday. Morris, 30, also performed the buttocks procedure on herself. Police suspect there may be other victims.
The victim, who was referred to Morris by an acquaintance, paid $700 dollars for the buttocks-filling injections.
A toxic cocktail was injected into several sites around her buttocks with a type of tube. When the pain became unbearable, Morris reassured the woman that everything was fine.
Morris is alleged to have told her patient:
"Oh don't worry, you'll be fine. We just keep injecting you with the stuff
and it all works itself out."
The patient, who remains unnamed, was eventually taken to hospital by her mother. She had been complaining of severe abdominal pain, flu-like symptoms, and infected sores on her buttocks. After some reluctant visits to two South Florida hospitals, she left early because she was too embarrassed to tell doctors what had really happened.
When doctors eventually found out what had occurred, they alerted the Department of Health. The health professionals knew that no sane doctor would ever have performed such a bizarre procedure.
Reports inform that the victim cannot work because of unbearable pain. She has also had to pay out a large amount of money in medical bills.
Morris faces charges of practicing medicine illegally (without a license), and serious bodily injury.
According to police photos, Morris has bee-stung pouty lips, arched eyebrows, and an enormous bottom. Nobody knows whether she has an attorney. She was released from jail on bond.
