The Tampa woman wanted a buttocks enhancement.
She wound up with years of medical complications.
In May 2009, Lournise Linton, now 41, traveled to a Motel 6 in Broward County for buttocks injections from a person she knew only by the nickname "Goddess," according to the Broward County Sheriff's Office.
At the motel, she met Oneal Ron Morris, the same transgendered woman recently charged with giving patients life-threatening injuries from buttocks-enhancement procedures involving a toxic slew of chemicals.
In South Florida, it's known as the "toxic tush" case.
Morris is accused of posing as a nurse while illegally performing buttocks-enhancement procedures on three women, including Linton, within a two-month period in 2009. Instead of silicone, Morris used bathroom caulk, cement, Super Glue, Fix-A-Flat and mineral oil, deputies said.
She turned herself in Monday in Broward County after a warrant was issued.
Linton and Vero Beach resident Ophelia Parker, now 36, met Morris on May 26 at the Motel 6 in Hollywood. Wearing a nursing uniform, gloves and a photo ID, Morris told Linton the elective procedure consisted of at least 22 silicone injections in each buttock, an arrest affidavit says.
Linton paid Morris $3,500 for the 20-minute procedure. The problems started almost immediately.
Linton told deputies she had a hard time removing cotton balls placed on the injection site. Deputies said she attributed this to the glue that was used.
About a year later, Linton started having breathing problems. She started coughing up blood and getting breathless. One night, she passed out.
At a hospital, she was told she had pneumonia and a foreign substance in her lungs, blocking them from working properly. It was bathroom caulking.
She received intravenous treatment for three weeks at the hospital. The incident left her taking seven medications and with severe leg pain and swollen lymph nodes. She has to have 24-hour IV treatment and has had to drain two abscesses on her buttocks, which left scarring.
Linton's physician told investigators she had severe cellulitis in her buttocks and that they were abnormally large. The physician said Linton improved after two weeks of continuous IV treatment but got worse after the treatments stopped. She'll continue to need treatment to fight infection.
Morris faces charges of practicing medicine without a license and practicing medicine without a license resulting in serious injury. Since the beginning of the investigation, numerous other people have accused Morris of similar crimes.
Morris has an extensive arrest record, according to the Miami Herald. She has been accused of using fake drivers' licenses and phony identification and writing bad checks and has been charged with theft in Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach and Alachua counties.
