The so-called ‘toxic tush’ nurse who allegedly injected patients with Fix-A-Flat and Super Glue has been charged with manslaughter after one of the women receiving her ‘treatments’ died after receiving the toxic serum in her buttocks, hips and breasts.
Oneal Morris, 32, was already facing multiple charges in Broward County, Florida, after other patients reported getting sick after she pumped them with an unhealthy concoction of chemicals as part of a black market plastic surgery business that she allegedly performed in hotels and in patients’ homes.
Shatarka Nuby, a 31-year-old mother, is the first of Morris’ patients to die from the procedures. Nuby told friends the injection sites became hard and hot and that her skin turned black.

She wrote a letter to Department of Health investigators before her death in March in Tallahassee. An assistant medical examiner said she suffered ‘massive systemic silicone migration’ from the injections, according to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office.
Authorities say Nuby paid the transgender woman known as ‘Dutchess’ hundreds of dollars to come to her house and inject her buttocks, hips, thighs and breasts with an unknown substance. Morris sometimes wore medical scrubs and a stethoscope.
The injections took place ten times between 2007 and 2011, Nuby had claimed.
She allegedly sealed Nuby’s injections with super glue and cotton balls, according to Broward County Sheriff’s deputies.
Authorities said Nuby was one of several victims who sought out 32-year-old Morris for backroom cosmetic procedures. Some of the victims developed complications and infections after the injections, which included bathroom caulk, cement, Super Glue, Fix-A-Flat and mineral oil into the bodies of his victims, deputies said.

Morris was arrested at her mother’s South Florida home on Thursday and charged with manslaughter. Her attorney, Michael Mirer, declined comment.
Morris was also arrested last fall after nearly a year of being sought and charged with practicing medicine without a license with serious bodily injury.
Authorities said a victim who was looking to get a job at a nightclub and wanted a curvier figure paid Morris $700 for the injections in 2010. Morris allegedly used some type of tubing and inserted the toxic chemicals into her backside during a painful procedure.
Among the other alleged victims are Lournise Linton, 41; Pheilia Parker, 36; and Tiffany Kennedy.
Miss Linton and Miss Parker say that they traveled to meet Morris in a Motel Six in Dania Beach in May of 2009.
The pair claim that Morris presented herself as a bone-fide medical professional and was wearing a nurses uniform and was carrying a photo ID.
However, both women claim the equipment he used to produce the desired ‘junk in the trunk’ backside implants was not of medical grade and that they almost died as a result of the injections.
