Butt Injection Death in St. Louis Could be Related to Dallas Case: Authorities

Authorities in the St. Louis area are investigating the death of a woman who received illegal buttocks injections and said there could be a link to a similar Dallas case. 

Daysha Phillips, 22, died Thursday, four days after she went with three other women to a hotel near Lambert-St. Louis International Airport for the buttocks-enhancing procedure, said her aunt, Marie Cooper.

On Tuesday, police in Edmundson, Mo., said they contacted Dallas investigators about the possible involvement of Denise “Wee Wee” Ross, 43, who was arrested on a murder charge in the February death of a Dallas woman. Ross has been out on bond since June 11. Ross’ attorney, Demarcus Ward, could not be reached for comment.
