Oneal Morris, a quack cosmetic doctor, was on Thursday arrested in Florida for fatally injecting one of her clients, Shatarka Nuby with unknown substances. (S)He had for months being on the run from the law after discovering the result of his action.
Oneal, a man who identifies as a woman, was found hiding at her mother’s home after fatally injecting Nuby’s buttocks, hips, thighs and breasts with unknown substances purportedly to enhance her appearance.
Oneal, also known as ”The Duchess’, was said to have been paid hundreds of dollars by Nuby to offer body enhancement services in her Florida home.
Nuby, 31, died in March as a result of the unauthorized treatment. Before her death, she had written a statement to investigators at the Department of Health in December where she claimed to have received injections from Oneal about 10 times between 2007 and 2011.
According to the BBC News, an assistant medical examiner said her skin turned black and the injected substance became hard and hot before she died.
Oneal Morris, 32, has been arrested to be arraigned on charges of manslaughter. He had previously been arrested a few months ago for practicing medicine without a license and causing serious bodily injury to clients.
This case is similar to that of Victoria Page Winslowe who was recently arrested and charged with murder for performing unauthorized buttocks enhancement procedures which led to the death of Claudia Aderotimi.
Aderotimi, a 20-year-old student, died after receiving injections from Winslowe, popularly known as ‘Black Madam’, in a Southwest Philadelphia hotel room.
