Authorities have filed homicide charges against a Hispanic woman after she 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 2011, had been seeking a penis enhancement, authorities said. Kasia Rivera, 34, of East Orange, has been arrested 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, 2011 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. Rivera's bail was set at $75,000.
