Police Investigate Death at Dallas Salon Where Illegal Butt Injections Were Given

Dallas police are trying to determine if a woman's death is connected to two women accused of providing illegal butt injections to clients at a Dallas salon.

On Feb. 19, Wykesha Reid was found dead in the same facility on East Side Avenue where 31-year-old Alicia Clarke and 43-year-old Denise Rochelle Ross are accused of practicing medicine without a license.

Police said it is an ongoing death investigation and a cause of death has not been determined. Neither Clarke nor Ross have been charged in connection with Reid's death.

Police are searching for Clarke and Ross after a woman reported she paid $520 for buttocks injections at a salon in the 3800 block of East Side Avenue.

The woman told police that Ross, who goes by Wee Wee, and Clarke sanitized her buttocks and began injecting syringes that Ross said contained a water-based saline. The woman said she was told to be quiet when she started screaming in pain.

Before the woman left, "the injection holes were closed with Super Glue and cotton balls," according to court documents, and she was given two tubes of Super Glue to take home in case liquid leaked out of the injection sites.

According to the affidavit, the woman said she is suffering psychological side effects and soreness in her body.

The current warrants for Clarke and Ross do not include charges related to Reid's death.

The medical examiner's office told The Dallas Morning News it won’t rule on the cause of death until it receives toxicology results, which could take two months.
