Transgendered woman Oneal Ron Morris, a fake doctor from Florida suspected of injecting a woman’s bottom with cement, super glue and tyre sealant to give her a more “shapely” rear has been arrested.
Oneal Ron Morris, 30, who by his own picture appears to have undergone the “butt-boosting” procedure himself, is accused of administering the potentially lethal shots to at least one victim.
The transgender, who police say is a man but appears to look like a woman, was detained in Florida yesterday for the alleged incident in May 2010.
Miami Gardens Police Department Sgt William Bamford said Oneal Ron Morris first met with the as-yet unidentified victim to discuss the procedure.
William Bamford said: “They agreed on the price of $700, which was intended for cosmetic purposes.”
But instead, police say the victim was given a series of injections containing cement, mineral oil and Fix-A-Flat tyre inflator and sealant.
The incision was sealed with super glue. Shortly after the surgery was carried out, the victim went on to suffer “severe complications”.
William Bamford told WPLG: “A short time later, she develops very serious pains, abdomen, throughout her body. She knows something is wrong.”
It appeared the woman visited two local hospitals, before heading to Tampa General Hospital, where she received treatment.
The woman had developed an infection of drug-resistant bug MRSA at the wound and also developed pneumonia, but refused to reveal how it had happened.
Doctors at the hospital, worried it was the work of an unlicensed practitioner, reported the case to the Florida Department of Health.
But by the time they started to investigate, the victim had left the area.
Oneal Ron Morris was eventually arrested in North Lauderdale in March 2011. He has been charged with practising medicine without a license and causing bodily harm.
The alleged incident is the latest in a long line of instances where women have suffered complications following illegal bottom enhancement procedures.
