Woman Dies After Botched Butt Implants

( 4UMF NEWS ) Woman Dies After Botched Butt Implants:

A Texas nurse’s death from an illegal butt enhancement injection was ruled a homicide in an autopsy announced Monday by the Dallas County medical examiner’s office, according to reports.

Wykesha Reid, 34, was found dead on the operating table at an alleged black market cosmetic surgery clinic in the Deep Ellum neighborhood on Feb. 19 after her fourth time receiving the so-called “booty shot.”

Toxicology tests showed Reid died from a blood clot in her lungs after silicone from her injection made its way into her bloodstream, The Dallas Morning News reported. The medical examiner’s office's autopsy found that this pulmonary embolization had caused her death, according to the paper.

Police say Denise (Wee Wee) Ross, 43, and Alicia Clarke, 31, were running the butt implant operation out of a storefront on the 3800 block of East Side Ave.

The women are already charged with practicing medicine without a license on a different alleged victim, and the homicide finding could clear the way for law enforcement officials to slap them with homicide charges, according to the Morning News.

Both Ross and Clarke, who was born a man named Jimmy but now lives as a woman, posted bail and have been released, the Morning News reported.
