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.
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 was under the care of 24-hour home health aides 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.
Morris, who police say is a man, appears to look like a woman and sports an apparently enhanced rear herself in arrest photos. It wasn’t immediately known if she had an attorney.
One patient noted that she was suspicious when she met the doctor at a nearby Pepboys.
