A transgender woman was re-arrested along with a man on Wednesday after a second woman came forward saying they injected her legs and buttocks with a substance consisting of cement, mineral oil and "Fix-a-Flat," authorities said.
The woman charged in Miami-Dade with injecting people with Fix-a-Flat and cement as part of a black market buttock-enhancing business is now facing similar charges in Broward County.
Oneal Morris, 32, turned herself in to authorities Monday on charges of practicing medicine without a license and practicing medicine without a license resulting in serious injury, according to the Broward Sheriff's Office. She made bond and was released the same day.
Morris was arrested after three Broward women came forward saying they also received butt enhancement injections with substances that included Fix-a-Flat, super glue and bathroom caulk, according to the BSO.
Morris' attorney said Tuesday evening that she "maintains her innocence, and is looking forward to her day in court."
“I’m questioning why they’re arresting my client three years later on these allegations, and I just think the timing is suspect," Michael Mirer said.
According to the BSO, Morris met victims Lournise Linton and Ophelia Parker at a Motel 6 at 825 E. Dania Beach Boulevard on May 26, 2009, to administer the injections.
Linton, 41, and Parker, 36, told authorities that Morris wore a nurse's uniform, gloves and had a photo ID around her neck, the BSO said.
Parker told police that she suffered from swelling and discoloration and was never able to contact Morris again.
One of the victims told authorities the substance injected into her buttocks was stored in a Pedialyte bottle. The other said she was unable to remove a cotton ball placed over her injection wound due to the super glue that was used, according to the BSO.
The women paid between $3,000 and $4,000 for the procedure, the BSO said.
The third victim, 36-year-old Tiffany Kennedy, had her injection procedure performed for $1,000 at her home in Tamarac on March 12, 2009, according to the BSO.
"I would definitely want to know what would make then go around and ruin people's lives," said Kennedy about the two arrested.
Substances used in all three injections included Fix-a-Flat, cement, super glue, mineral oil and bathroom caulk, according to the BSO.
All of the women developed medical complications and infections and had to be taken to a hospital or doctor's office, the BSO said. The newest charges were filed after an investigation by the Florida Department of Health.
Julie Matthews, a mother of one of the victims, said she warned her daughter.
"She has a great body," Matthews said. "She's beautiful. She didn't need to do anything to herself."
Morris was arrested in November 2011 on charges of practicing medicine without a license after an investigation by Miami Gardens Police and the Department of Health.
At least two women had claimed Morris injected them with a similar potentially dangerous mixture, causing them to become ill, authorities said. Morris later denied those accusations.
A second person, Corey Eubank, was also arrested and charged as Morris' accomplice in the alleged Miami-Dade injections. Eubank has also denied the allegations.
Authorities said there may be other victims out there and anyone who may have been a victim is asked to call the Florida Department of Health at 1-877-425-8852.
