Several additional people have come forward claiming to have had ostensibly cosmetic but actually toxic injections that included tire sealant performed by a Florida transgender woman accused of posing as a doctor.
Oneal Ron Morris (pictured) was arrested Friday and charged with practicing medicine without a license and causing great bodily harm to a Miami Gardens woman who in 2010 received buttocks-enhancement injections with a mix of "household and automotive products" that included "superglue, mineral oil and 'Fix-a-Flat,'" according to a statement released by the Florida Department of Health. The woman developed pneumonia-like symptoms and other health complications and nearly died. Her name is being kept confidential.
Now, according to Miami's NBC affiliate, "several other possible victims have come forward saying Morris performed similar procedures on them, and that they sustained life-threatening injuries." More arrests are possible, health department spokeswoman Jennifer Hirst told the station, and she encouraged anyone with information to contact the department or their local police force.
Morris, who appears to have undergone buttocks enhancement herself, has been released from jail on bond.
