Woman Dies After Rear-End Injections

Police are investigating the death of Suyima Torres, 28, whose family says she suffered respiratory arrest hours after receiving an injection to enlarge her derriere at a beauty clinic in West Dade, Miami New Times reports.
Authorities are trying to identify a Venezuelan man who they suspect pretended to be a doctor at the clinic , which is licensed only for massages, not medical procedures.  Police say he may have left the country; they say  they could get little information from the clinic’s owner, Ruth Planas.
