Transgender Woman Accused of Injecting "Fix-a-Flat" in Patient’s Buttocks
A number of individuals are alleging that a transgender woman gave them toxic injections that caused life-threatening injuries. The "doctor" was recently arrested for injecting a number of substances into women’s buttocks, NBC Miami reported in a Nov. 22 article.
Oneal Ron Morris, 30, has been charged with practicing medicine without a license and with inflicting serious bodily injury. The Miami Gardens Police and the Florida Department of Health investigated the incident and allege that in 2010 Morris injected a woman’s buttocks with "household and automotive products," including mineral oil, cement and "Fix-a-Flat."
According to Jennifer Hirst, DOH deputy press secretary, the injections caused the woman to visit the hospital several times for life-threatening injuries and required her to have surgery. She also required the care of 24-hour home health aids.
The arrest report claims the victim went to a Miami Gardens home to meet Morris. She paid Morris $700 for six injections "in each buttock to improve its shape and cosmetic" appearance.
The victim found the injections to be extremely painful and could only stand to receive half of the treatment. After a few hours, she began to feel ill.
Authorities issued an arrest warrant after the initial investigation but Morris was difficult to locate as she was listed under several addresses in different cities in Florida. It took officials nearly a year to track down the faux doctor.
