Oneal Ron Morris aka the “Toxic Tush” doctor will be spending the next 10 years in prison after a woman gave butt injections to died. Apparently, she is accused of using a deadly concoction of super glue and Fix-a-Flat in her procedures.
Morris, who is transgender, plead no content to the death of 31-year-old Shatarka Nuby, who claims to have received as much as 10 injections for $2,000 from the unlicensed doctor between 2007 and 2010. The horror story came to light after Nuby wrote a letter to the Florida state health department while serving time in prison about the side effects she was experiencing from her injections. She claimed that her butt had hardened and turned black
The horror story came to light after Nuby wrote a letter to the Florida state health department while serving time in prison about the side effects she was experiencing from her injections. She claimed that her butt had hardened and turned black on top of physically feeling sick before alleging that Morris was the doctor responsible.
Nuby died four months later with doctors saying it was due to “respiratory failure from massive systemic silicone migration.”
“There’s no closure. Putting (Morris) in jail won’t bring her back,” said Juanita Nuby, Shatarka’s aunt, in a statement she made to Broward Circuit Judge Michael Ian Rothschild that was broadcast by WFOR-CBS4. “This is a court of man, all you can do is put her away and teach her a lesson.” – via the Sun Sentinel
The 36-year-old alternative doctor was also known as “Duchess” by her patients and many shared the same horror stories as Nuby.
“You gave us your word that the products you was using was A-1 products. And come to find out they were not,” said victim Kisha Jones. “Maybe in the beginning, but greed really took over, because you was pocketing the money from every victim.”
Morris’ defense attorney William Lanphear believes that the sentence is too harsh because her patients should’ve known the risks.
“All parties share the responsibilities and the blame for their own actions and the role they played,” he said. “There was an assumption of risk obligation from the victims.”
Moral of the story: Love yourself.
