More patients come forward, allege fake Fla. doctor pumped toxic materials into their buttocks
MIAMI (AP) ' Florida health officials say several possible victims have come forward alleging a woman posing as a doctor pumped their buttocks with cement, mineral oil and flat-tire sealant.
Oneal Ron Morris was arrested Friday for practicing medicine without a license with serious bodily injury for performing that procedure on a woman last year. Department of Health officials said Tuesday that several victims who'd sought buttocks enhancement have since come forward alleging Morris performed similar procedures resulting in life-threatening injuries.
Additional arrests are possible.
One victim told authorities she paid $700 to Morris and had toxic chemicals pumped into her bottom in a painful procedure resulting in hospitalization and multiple surgeries.
The 30-year-old Morris is a man and identifies as a woman. Police say she performed the same surgery on herself.
