Cops: Fake doc injected woman's buttocks with cement
Oneal Ron Morris, 30, who police say was born a man but identifies as a woman, was charged with practicing medicine without a license and serious bodily injury. She was released on bond.
The victim, who is not being identified, was reportedly referred to Morris by a friend for a series of injections costing $700 in May 2010. Police said Morris injected tubes in several places around her bottom and pumped them full of toxic substances.
Miami Gardens Police Sgt. Bill Bamford said that when the pain became severe Morris told the patient, "'Oh don't worry, you'll be fine. We just keep injecting you with the stuff and it all works itself out.'"
Soon after the procedure, the victim reportedly went to the hospital several times with sores, flu like symptoms and severe pain. But each time, she left, too embarrassed to tell the doctors what had happened to her.
Eventually, the woman's mother took her to the hospital where doctors questioned her and finally called the Department of Health.
"The doctors knew no licensed physician in his right mind would ever do this," Bamford said.
The victim is still recovering from surgery and in too much pain to work. Police believe Morris has performed this procedure on other people who may be too embarrassed to come forward.
