Arrest warrants issued for botched butt injection suspects

Dallas police have issued arrests warrants for two people they say were doing illegal cosmetic surgery, with the main procedure being butt injections. Police are also investigating the death of one of their patients.

Denise Ross, also known as "Wee Wee," and Jimmy Joe Clarke, who also goes by "Alicia," are accused of practicing medicine without a license and using common household products in their procedures.

Cecilia Taylor says Ross was the go-to person for butt injections, so she was stunned when a patient turned up dead at the same office she had gone to for the same procedure.

Taylor immediate questioned whether she would she suffer similar medical consequences for her $500 decision.

"I jumped up and went to the emergency room, had the doctor check my behind," said Taylor. "He said, ‘It looks OK for now,' but I was very, very scared."

Dallas police investigated Wykesha Reid's unexplained death inside a now-abandoned Deep Ellum address in mid-February.

Reid's cause of death is still pending, but the two who ran a business inside that advertised eyelash extensions were Ross and Clarke.

Taylor describes them as kind and said they held her hand and talked to her during her injections in January.

She said Ross appeared to be professional.

"She said she used to work under a plastic surgeon, and that's exactly what I went by," said Taylor.

Another victim confirmed to Dallas police she, too, went to see Ross and Clarke for $520 worth of butt injections in early February, and when she asked "questions about the procedure, such as what was being used in the injections and she was not given a good explanation."

The patient "…was told by Wee Wee the liquid was a water based saline and [when she] asked if it was Hydro Gel and Wee Wee responded, ‘yes.'"

During the seven-syringe procedure, she "felt intense pain and was told to be quiet after screaming in agony. The injection holes were closed with super glue and cotton balls."

"She did tell us it was Hydro Gel," said Taylor. "I did look it up; perfectly fine. Now that I've seen this, I'm like, ‘OK, what did she put in me?'"

FOX 4 also spoke to another woman earlier this year who said she paid Ross $8,000 for her injections. She said she contacted Ross through Facebook.

Taylor says she was referred to Ross by other friends.

Ross has previous arrests for theft, credit card abuse and practicing medicine without a license.

Clarke has multiple arrests for prostitution and one for public lewdness.

Practicing medicine without a license in Texas is a third-degree felony, punishable by two to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. Under the law, each day that a defendant commits that crime, that can be added as an individual charge.
