A man accused of injecting several people's buttocks with cement and other substances as a form of cosmetic surgery was charged with manslaughter in Broward County, Florida after one of his patients died, according to officials.
The man, 32-year-old transvestite Oneal Morris, who the victims allegedly knew as 'Dutchess', was paid hundreds of dollars to inject their buttocks, breasts, and thighs with an unknown substance, according to the Broward County Sheriff's Department. He was arrested in Hollywood, Florida and charged with manslaughter after one of his patients died.
Once he had been paid, Morris would allegedly inject bathroom caulk, cement, Super Glue, Fix-A-Flat and mineral oil into the bodies of his victims. He would then use super glue and cotton balls to seal the injection sites up.
Shatarka Nuby, a 32-year-old mother, passed away in March after receiving what an assistant medical examiner called “massive systemic silicone migration” as a consequence of cosmetic silicone injections. Before her death, Nuby had complained to friends and relatives that the injections sites became hard and hot and that her skin turned black. She also wrote a letter to Department of Health investigators before her death.
Morris turned himself in on March 12 to face charges including practicing medicine without a license and practicing medicine without a license resulting in serious injury. He was released the same day. On Thursday, prosecutors charged him with one count of manslaughter for the crime.
Morris had been arrested several times previously for performing cosmetic procedures without a license in Miami-Dade and Broward counties. Some of the women developed complications and infections after the injections. Nuby was the only one whose symptoms became fatal.
