(Florida) — Oneal Ron Morris, 30, a woman who posed as a doctor, was arrested on Friday for filling her patients’ buttocks with cement, mineral oil and flat-tyre sealant.
Oneal was born a man and identifies as a woman. She also performed the surgery on herself. She had been on the run for almost a year.
Oneal has been charged with practising medicine without a licence and causing serious bodily injury. She was released from jail on bond.
According to investigators, Oneal had injected some type of tube in several sites around the bottom of one of her victims, filling it with a toxic concoction.
The victim later went to two hospitals with severe abdominal pain and infected sores on her buttocks accompanied by flu-like symptoms.
Her mother eventually took her to another hospital, where doctors who pressed the victim for information alerted the Department of Health.
Investigators say Oneal may have victimised several others, who may be too embarrassed to report the crime.
