Butt injection suspect arrested again
BSO: 3 victims in Broward come forward
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – A man arrested in November, accused of injecting Fix-A-Flat into a woman's rear end during a cosmetic procedure, has been arrested again.
Oneal Morris, 32, of Hollywood, who was arrested in November on charges of practicing medicine without a license after being accused of injecting a substance consisting of cement, Fix-A-Flat, mineral oil and superglue into a woman's buttocks and then sealing the incision with superglue, now faces charges in Broward County.
The Broward Sheriff's Office said it received information from a Florida Department of Health investigation that said Morris had victimized three Broward County women in 2009.
BSO said that Morris performed buttocks enhancement injections on a 36-year-old woman, who knew him only as "Duchess," at her Tamarac home in March 2009.
According to BSO, two months later, Morris met a 41-year-old Tampa woman and a 36-year-old Vero Beach woman at a Motel 6 in Dania Beach so he could give them buttocks enhancement injections for $3,000 to $4,000 each. Investigators said Morris, whom the two women knew as "Goddess," wore a nurse's uniform, gloves and a photo ID around his neck.
According to the probable cause affidavit, Morris told the women the procedures would consist of several injections of "silicone." One of the women told police that the substance Morris injected came out of a Pedialyte bottle, and the other said Morris used superglue on her injection wound.
Investigators said Morris was using bathroom caulk, cement, superglue, Fix-A-Flat and mineral oil in the injections.
All three women had medical complications and infections after the procedures and had to go to a hospital or doctor's office, BSO said. According to the probable cause affidavit, the woman who received the injections at her home was admitted to a hospital later that month with cellulitis.
"He could've killed my child," said Julie Matthews, one victim's mother. "To put that kinda stuff in somebody. Completely criminal."
Of the women who received the injections at the motel, one of them had skin discoloration after the procedure, and Morris gave her bleaching cream to put on it, but the woman was never able to reach him again, according to the probable cause affidavit. The woman told investigators she has scarring, and a doctor said she had a physical deformity from the procedure and that he did not know whether it could be remedied.
The second woman who received injections at the motel ended up with pneumonia and was hospitalized for three weeks, police said. Doctors told her bathroom caulking had gotten into her lungs and was blocking them from performing their usual functions, according to the affidavit. The woman told investigators she has to have 24-hour IV treatments to fight the infections in her body, and that she has abscesses and scarring, police said. A doctor told police the woman will also need surgery.
Morris turned himself in to police Monday. He faces charges including practicing medicine without a license and practicing medicine without a license resulting in serious injury.
