Another fatherless daughter has lost her life due to a lack of self-esteem and poor sense of self worth.
Wykesha Reid, a single mother who lived in Dallas, was found dead in the back of a salon after what was described as her “fourth black-market butt injection,” according to the Dallas News.
Reid, 34, apparently “got hooked on them booty shots,” according to Patricia Kelley, who raised Reid. Kelley said, even though Reid’s butt was “getting too big,” she went back to Deep Ellum salon for another round of butt shots from an unlicensed street practitioner.
According to an affidavit obtained by Dallas News, Reid “screamed in agony” during the procedure, but was told to shut up. After she died, the practitioner(s) “cleaned out” the salon and fled the scene, taking Reid’s cell phone and wallet with them.
Reid likely died from respiratory arrest after the injected substance spread from the injection site to her lungs.
Police are now searching for salon owners Denise Ross, 43, and Jimmy Clarke, 31, (a.k.a. Alicia)—not in connection with Reid’s death, but on charges of practicing medicine without a license in a separate case that came to light later, in which, the Dallas News reports, “a woman who received butt injections suffered pain, soreness and psychological problems but survived.”
The alleged black-market butt-injectors could still be charged in Reid’s death, authorities say, but that depends on toxicology results that are still weeks away.
