A second person has been arrested in South Florida’s notorious “toxic tush” case, charged with assisting a fake doctor accused of leaving patients with life-threatening injuries from a buttocks-enhancement procedure that involved injecting a toxic stew of household and automotive chemicals into their bodies.
Corey Alexander Eubank, 40, of Hollywood, was charged with two counts of unlicensed practice of a healthcare professional with serious injury and two counts of acting as a principal, according to Miami Gardens police.
He was arrested Wednesday, and is out of jail awaiting trial after posting $5,000 bond today.
Eubank is accused of aiding Oneal Ron Morris, 30.
Morris’ clients believed they were getting a backside enhancement. What they really got, according to police, were injections of cement, mineral oil, Fix-a-Flat and Super Glue. The injections left the victims ill, sending them to hospitals.
Miami Gardens police said that both Eubank and Morris were in jail Wednesday night. Morris, a man who identifies as a woman, was arrested last week on charges of practicing healthcare without a license, causing serious bodily injury, and bonded out. He was rearrested Wednesday after a second victim came forward.
In the case that brought the scheme to light last week, Morris is accused of duping a Miami Gardens woman into paying for six injections of what, in her case, was a near-lethal formula of chemicals administered through a tube hooked to a cooler, according to police and state investigators.
Other victims contacted police in the days afterward. The new charges are based on information provided by a second woman who went about the same time as the first, in May 2010, for the procedure at a home at 1114 NW 206th Ter., Miami Gardens.
Both were told by Eubank, who coordinated the meeting, that Morris “made his living by conducting this procedure at homes at a certain price,” Eubank’s arrest affidavit states.
Eubank walked the women in one at a time, prepared a portable massage table and escorted witnesses out of the room before Morris began his work, the affidavit states.
