FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – ONeal Ron Morris, the infamous fake doctor that allegedly injected items like fix-a-flat into patients’ posteriors, has been arrested by the Broward County Sheriff’s Office after more allegations of medical wrongdoing were made against her.
BSO detectives, working with the Florida Department of Health and the Broward State Attorney’s Office, arrested Morris for allegedly giving buttocks injections that were not made of silicone, but rather substances like fix-a-flat, bathroom caulk, cement, Super Glue, and mineral oil.
Morris allegedly performed the procedures on Lournise Linton, 41, of Tampa; Ophelia Parker, 36, of Vero Beach; and Tiffany Kennedy, 36 of Lauderhill.
Linton and Parker alleged they met Morris on May 26, 2009 at a Motel 6 on Dania Beach Blvd. Both women told detectives Morris wore a nurse’s uniform, gloves, and had a photo ID around the neck.
One of the victims said the substance being injected was stored in a Pedialyte bottle. The other victim said she couldn’t remove the cotton ball placed over the injection wound due to the Super Glue that was used to seal the wound. The victims said they paid between $3,000 to $4,000 for the work.
Kennedy allegedly had the procedure done on March 16 when Morris allegedly came to Kennedy’s home. Kennedy told detectives that the injections cost her $1,000.
“She was very sick, very very sick,” said Kennedy’s mother, Julie Matthews. “She’s worried about what’s going happen to her, because this stuff, whatever [she] put in there is still rolling around in there.”
The three victims said they developed medical complications and infections that forced them to seek medical attention.
Morris was originally arrested in November 2011 for allegedly performing the enhancement procedures without a license. One person almost died after allegedly being injected with the same materials.
Morris, who was born a man, turned herself in on March 12 to face charges of practicing medicine without a license and practicing medicine without a license resulting in serious injury.
“My client is maintaining her innocence and she did nothing wrong,” said Morris’ attorney Michael Mirer.
The Florida Department of Health said anyone who believes they are a victim of Morris should contact either their local law enforcement agency or the FDH’s Unlicensed Activity Program at 1-877-425-8852.
