The Dallas County Medical Examiner’s Office on Tuesday said Wykesha Reid died of pulmonary silicone embolization, associated with cosmetic silicone injections. Among other things done to Reid during the procedure, authorities say her injection areas were sealed with Super Glue.
Two salon workers, Denise “Wee Wee” Ross and Jimmy “Alicia” Clarke, were charged with practicing medicine without a license in another case, after Reid’s death.
