Oneal Ron Morris, the amateur plastic surgeon who's alleged to have performed bizarre procedures on numerous patients, including injecting a mixture including fix-a-flat tire repair material in the behind of one victim, bonded out of jail yesterday on the same day that one of her alleged victims went public. Rajee Narinesingh, a transgendered woman, tells CBS4 that she received facial injections from Morris that left her almost disfigured.
Unable to afford licensed surgery to feminize her appearance, Narinesingh went to Morris more than two years ago after hearing about her through word of mouth. Narinesingh received injections in her face, chest and buttocks.
"It becomes so dire that you want to match your outside with your inside that you're willing to roll the dice and take your chances," Narinesingh tells CBS4. "As a transgender person, you're thinking 'Oh, my God, I can start to look like I want to look like and I don't have to spend a lot of money.'"
Narinesingh says she though she was getting injected with silicone, but it's unknown to this day what exactly was injected into her body. The injections left hard nodules in her face, and Dr. John Martin has been helping Narinesingh correct the mock surgeries ever since.
More victims have come forward to police after Morris' initial arrest two weeks ago, but Narinesingh is the first to come forward, though she says she has yet to file a police report.
