Don’t try this at home, kids.
Authorities have filed homicide charges against a woman after she allegedly administered a silicone injection into the penis of a 22-year-old man, who suffered a fatal blood clot.
The victim, who died in May, had been seeking a penis enhancement, authorities said today.
Kasia Rivera, 34, of East Orange, was arrested today on manslaughter charges and unauthorized practice of medicine in the death of Justin Street, the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office said.
Street, also of East Orange, died May 6, the day after he went to Rivera’s home, where she gave him the injection, authorities said.
The medical examiner determined the cause of death as silicone embolism as a result of the injection, the prosecutor’s office said.
Street’s death was ruled a homicide and Rivera was arrested after an investigation by the prosecutor’s office, with assistance of the East Orange Police Department.
