Penis enlargement injections can be fatal, especially if they’re done in sketchy conditions by someone with no medical training. That’s what the family of New Jersey man Justin Street learned when the woman who killed him plead guilty to his homicide recently.
Kasia Rivera entered a guilty plea for injecting Street’s penis with silicone in May, 2011, an action that killed him the next day.
“You injected the silicone into his penis?” assistant prosecutor William Neafsey asked Rivera
Rivera replied: “Yes.”
According to NJ.com, Justin Street went to Rivera’s home in East Orange, New Jersey, to get the penis enlargement procedure done. Rivera injected the silicone directly into his bloodstream, which led to the development of a silicone embolism and full organ shutdown.
“He talked to me about having surgery but I didn’t think he would do anything like that,“ his father, Kysung Mills, said. “I don’t think he knew what he was doing. I told him that stuff don’t work. You got to be blessed for what you have.”
In exchange for a guilty plea on an involuntary manslaughter charge for the penis enlargement fatality, the prosecution has agreed to allow her to a serve a five-year sentence and she should be eligible for parole after she’s served four years in prison.
She could also be deported to her native Jamaica, Superior Court judge Robert Gardner told Rivera.
“I don’t know whether that’ll happen or not, but you understand that that in fact may happen,” Gardner said.
Rivera had pending charges for the possession of a stun gun and injecting silicone into a woman’s buttocks and breasts. Those charges will be dropped because of her guilty plea in the penis enlargement case.
Penis size has been the root cause of male insecurity for centuries. This isn’t the first time a botched penis enlargement procedure has been linked to devastating consequences. As the Mirror reports, in January, 2014, Michael Wenham of the U.K. fatally stabbed and almost decapitated a Polish woman, Karolina Nowikiewicz, after a botched penis enlargement surgery.
Earlier this year, the courts heard Wenham attacked Karolina after coming off drugs designed to suppress his sexual desires following his failed penis enlargement. He also confessed to harbouring thoughts of becoming a serial killer. Hours before attacking Nowikiewicz, Wenham sent an email to MI5 and offered to help the security agency to infiltrate terrorist organisations. Wenham was sentenced to a minimum of 26 years in prison for the murder.
Kasia Rivera will be sentenced for the botched penis enlargement injection on October 19.
