'Doctor' in butt implant death used Dunkin Donuts as waiting room
The phony surgeon involved in the death of a Harlem woman from a butt enhancement procedure used a nearby Dunkin Donuts as a waiting room, where he would have patients wait before sending a "nurse" to escort them to the apartment where the procedures were conducted, according to the family's lawyer.
"These phony doctors prey on unsuspecting women, promising that they will make them look like Kim Kardashian and other desirable celebrities," the attorney, Jack Yankowitz, said in a statement. "Instead, these women end up with gross, debilitating deformities, amputations and, in the worst cases, death."
Latesha Bynum, a 31-year-old Harlem woman, died almost two weeks after getting the butt injection, and her family has since called for justice in her murder.
Police have said that they are close to tracking down the "doctor" responsible.
"There is a strong possibility there are going to be arrests," NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said, adding, "This happens, unfortunately, a couple times of year where we have these kinds of surgeries gone bad. These are not doctors. They should not be doing this."
