Sanford woman was indicted on federal charges Tuesday, accused of illegally using silicone for cosmetic procedures, including one that led to a person’s death, prosecutors said.
Investigators say Deanna M. Roberts, 46, falsely claimed to be a licensed medical practitioner and illegally injected liquid silicone in at least five people during cosmetic procedures.
Roberts purchased about 178 gallons of liquid silicone between 2004 and 2015 and told officials she was going to use the substance to lubricate medical equipment, records show.
The FDA doesn’t allow silicone to be injected directly in the human body and requires buyers to list the reason they’re purchasing the substance.
Investigators say Roberts took the liquid silicone to the Atlanta area and injected it into the hips, buttocks, and other body parts of at least five people.
In November, she injected the substance into the buttocks of a victim identified only as L.H. in an indictment.
Prosecutors allege the L.H. died as a result of the procedure.
Roberts also injected another person that same day and two others a year prior. None of the other victims died from the procedures.
“Roberts allegedly caused the death of another person by injecting her with silicone after falsely claiming she was a medical professional,” John Horn, the U.S. Attorney in the Northern District of Georgia said in a statement. “The public should be wary of individuals who use substances like silicone in ways that are not approved by the FDA, or that are administered by persons who are not properly trained or licensed.”
She was arrested Tuesday and she is being held in the John E. Polk Correctional Facility in Sanford.
The desperation is real and so is the struggle. So let’s guess this. These people made appointments with their doctor or specialist and in came this psychotic nurse with a needle. She was as unstable as Kathy Bates in MISERY, and she forced you to the ground and drained silicone into your body parts. Yesssssssssss this is EXACTLY what happened. Lol
Ummmm no! Somebody allowed Becky to inject this shit into them for a small fee. There’s some crazy miserable lumpy faced man or woman out there suffering because they weren’t happy with what they were born with. Ugh! This isn’t a blog against cosmetic surgery or things of that nature. It’s about loving yourself enough to not do something so desperate.
