In a bizarre incident, a Florida woman paid $700 to make her rear more shapely and curvy. But to her horror, she later discovered that cement had been injected into her body.
The unidentified victim (privacy laws prevent her name from being released) was referred to the suspect by a friend. She went through a series of injections in May 2010.
The victim wanted to work at a night club and was looking for a physician to perform plastic surgery on her, when she came across an individual who introduced herself as a doctor.
The suspect identified herself as Oneal Ron Morris - she was born a man, before performing surgery on herself, according to Fox News. According to investigators, she may have victimized other people too.
Morris, 30, filled the victim's buttocks with cement, mineral oil and flat-tire sealant, the report said. She was arrested Friday after being on the run for nearly a year. She has been charged with practicing medicine without a license and so causing serious bodily injury.
As of now, it is not clear if Morris has an attorney.
According to Miami Gardens Police Sgt. Bill Bamford, Morris used to go from house to house, in her black Mercedes, to stay away from investigators' eyes and it was only when an officer drove by one of those localities that she was finally arrested.
Police further said that Morris injected a kind of tube, in several places around the victim's buttocks and pumped in a toxic concoction. When the pain became too intense for the victim, Morris, according to Bamford, apparently told her not to worry and it would all work out after being injected with the stuff.
The police report that the victim was initially reluctant to come forward and tell doctors what happened to her. She did go to the hospital quite a few times, with abdominal pain and infected sores, along with flu-like symptoms, only to return embarrassed. It was only when her mother took her to the hospital that this incident came to light. Doctors then immediately alerted the Department of Health.
The doctors knew no licensed physician in his right mind would ever do this, Bamford said.
According to authorities, there could be other victims, each as embarrassed to come forward.
