More Alleged Victims of Fake Butt Doctor Oneal Morris Come Forward
Since the arrest of Oneal Ron Morris on Friday made headlines across the country, several other victims of the fake doctor have now come forward. Morris, who identifies as a transgendered woman, was accused of injecting a patient looking for butt implants with a mixture of super glue, cement and Fix-A-Flat tire repair spray.
Morris bailed out of jail over the weekend but faces charges of practicing medicine without a license, and as more victims come forward could face additional charges. Police also say that more arrests could be made in the case.
The Florida Department of Health says that there could be "several" more victims but has not clarified exactly how many.
The original victim in the case, who has not been identified, has had several medical problems since the injections in May 2010 and had been hospitalized for maladies including welts and pneumonia. The woman is still under medical care at home, and nearly a year and a half later remains in poor health.
