Can’t believe people are still doing this…
Daily Mail reports:
A North Carolina woman is facing second-degree murder charges after performing unlicensed silicone injections on a transgender teen, causing her death.
Kavonceya Iman Cornelius, 42, who is also transgender, performed the fake plastic surgery on 19-year-old Symone Marie Jones – born Eugene Jones II.
Jones died after receiving the “off-market” implants from Cornelius at her Salisbury home, which poisoned her blood and killed her.
Jones’ family said that on Jan. 5, she traveled to Cornelius’ home on the 500 block of Union Heights Boulevard in Salisbury to receive the implants.
She died just a few days later on Jan. 12.
Cornelius was using non-medical grade silicone and was not licensed to perform the procedure.

She reportedly began transitioning into a woman last year and received breast implants from a licensed doctor in Miami.
Symone’s mother, Sandra Harmon, said she fully supported the decision to transition, and knew from the time her then-son was two years old that he was more prone to femininity.
She told WTVD that she plead with her daughter not to receive the injections off the market because the unlicensed “doctors” were potentially dangerous.
Police were tipped off in February about Cornelius’ botched plastic surgery by another one of her transgender victims, who received 15 silicone butt injections from her, according to the Salisbury Post.
Transgenders go through so much… May she R.I.P.
