Several people have come forward claiming a transgender woman, who was arrested for allegedly injecting toxic substances into a woman’s buttocks, performed similar procedures on them, health officials said Monday.
Oneal Ron Morris, 30, bonded out of jail after being arrested following an investigation by Miami Gardens Police and the Florida Department of Health. She has been charged with practicing medicine without a license with serious bodily injury.
The Florida Department of Health was told by a victim in 2010 that Morris allegedly injected treatments into the victim’s buttocks, which resulted in life-threatening injuries. That victim was treated at several hospitals, had to go through surgeries, and had to have 24-hour home health aides for care for a long time, said Jennifer Hirst, DOH deputy press secretary in an email statement. There was also permanent scarring at the injection points.
Lab results determined that the substances injected into the victim included “household and automotive products to include superglue, mineral oil and ‘Fix-a-Flat,” according to the statement.
