One of the people who says she underwent an illegal cosmetic procedure
at the hands of a Florida transgender woman posing as a doctor now has
misshapen facial features.
Rajee Narinesingh (pictured), also a trans woman, said she received an injection from Oneal Ron Morris, who is accused of impersonating a doctor and injecting her clients with a substance that was said to be silicone but was actually a toxic mixture that includes cement and tire sealant. Some of Morris's accusers say they received the injections in their buttocks, but Narinesingh had them in her face. She shared her story with Miami's CBS affiliate, noting that her cheeks, chin, and upper lip were even more distorted before she had some surgery to reduce the damage done by the original procedure.
Narinesingh said she heard of Morris through word of mouth and went to her because she could not afford to pay a licensed cosmetic surgeon. "It becomes so dire that you want to match your outside with your inside that you're willing to roll the dice and take your chances," Narinesingh said. "As a transgender person, you're thinking, Oh, my God, I can start to look like I want to look like and I don't have to spend a lot of money."
Five other alleged victims have come forward; unlike them, Narinesingh has not filed a police report, the TV station reports, but she is considering doing so. In addition to distorting bodily features, the material caused serious health complications including pneumonia-like symptoms, according to police reports.
Morris, 30, was first arrested November 18, posted bond, and then was arrested again Wednesday after more accusers surfaced. She posted bond again Monday and was released. She faces charges of impersonating a doctor and causing serious bodily harm; her lawyer says she is not guilty. Corey Alexander Eubank, 40, who is accused of assisting Morris, was also arrested Wednesday and charged with unlicensed practice as a health care professional and causing serious injury, according to The Miami Herald.
