Man Charged With Manslaughter In Butt Injection Case

 

This is a follow-up story to the one a few months ago about the Florida transsexual who was injecting people’s buttocks with caulk, cement, and Fix-A-Flat.  From Reuters:

A man who injected a woman in the buttocks with unknown substances during an
illegal cosmetic surgery was arrested on Thursday and charged with manslaughter
in the woman’s death, authorities said.

Oneal Ron Morris, 31, of Hollywood, Florida, is known to have injected other
women with substances such as bathroom caulk, cement, Super Glue and the tire
product Fix-A-Flat, officials with the Broward County Sheriff’s Office said.

Authorities described Morris as a transvestite who went by the nickname “The Dutchess.”

According to his arrest affidavit, 31-year-old Shatarka Nuby died in March in
Tallahassee from what an assistant medical examiner called “massive systemic
silicone migration” due to “cosmetic silicone injections of the buttocks and
hips,” according to the arrest affidavit.

She died months after her last injection by Morris. Before her death, Nuby
told a Florida Department of Health investigator that she paid Morris at least
$2,000 for about 10 treatments between 2007 and 2011 to enhance her buttocks,
hips, thighs and breasts, according to the affidavit and a sheriff’s report.

Morris once told Nuby’s aunt that he was injecting her with silicone from
Home Depot, the affidavit said. Morris made house calls for the injections and
would seal the injection sites with cotton balls and Super Glue, Nuby’s aunt
told investigators.

There are a lot of lessons to be taken from a story like this.  I’ll be discussing it, and similar topics on HLN’s Evening Express, Monday July 30th at around 5:45pm EDT.  For more information on HLN’s Evening Express news program, click HERE.

  1. This is a truly appalling story! It’s a stark reminder than anyone who decides to go ahead with cosmetic surgery must never ever consider going to someone who anything less than the very best professional. Trying to save money will end in horrendous tragedy. Put your health first!!!
    On a side note, I find that the fact that the man in question is a transvestite has absolutely no relevance to this case whatsoever. Is this yet another method used by the media to further demonize people? His lifestyle choice has nothing to do with the crimes he committed, so why include it in the story?

  2. In my opinion, the media likes to jump on any unusual aspects of a story. Because being a transsexual isn’t considered mainstream, this fact makes the story even more sensational and talked about.

  3. This is scary as hell! I wonder why people actually resort to using silicon glue for cosmetic surgery, the smell is so bad that you would it is not right from the very first instant.
