Oneal Ron Morris, the unlicensed "doctor" arrested last year after allegedly injecting substances like caulk and fix-a-flat tire sealant into the rear end of a patient, has been arrested again. Morris turned herself into to Broward Sheriff's Deputies yesterday on new charges of practicing medicine without a license after three new patients came forward.
Lournise Linton, 41, of Tampa; Ophelia Parker, 36, of Vero Beach; and Tiffany Kennedy, 36 of Lauderhill all claim that they were patients of Morris.
Linton and Parker say they met Morris in a Motel Six in Dania Beach back in May of 2009. Morris presented her self as an actual medical professional by wearing a nurses uniform and a photo ID badge. The equipment she used wasn't medical grade, though.
One victim says that whatever substance was injected into her was stored in a Pedialyte bottle. Another said she couldn't remove the cotton ball placed over the injection site because super glue was used to close the wound. Both victims say they paid between $3,000 to $4,000 for the procedures.
Kennedy says that Morris met her in her own Lauderhill home back in March of the same year. She paid $1,000 for the procedure. All three said the procedures caused medical complications which needed further attention.
Morris was originally arrested back in November of 2011 after one patient claimed that she almost died as a result of the procedures.
Morris has claimed that, "I really am innocent or whatever."
Anyone other past patients of Morris are asked to call the Florida Department of Health at 1-877-425-8852.
