West Palm Beach, FL – Calvin Edward Butler, 44, also known as Tamieka Butler, has been arrested again on charges of illegally injecting silicone into the butts of patients and sealing them with Krazy Glue. Butler was originally detained January 18, 2013 in a West Palm Beach motel where he allegedly performed butt injections. He posted bond the next day.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office investigation of the criminal augmentation claims against Butler is ongoing. Butler was re-arrested on Tuesday after a fourth victim emerged. He’s in Palm Beach County Jail on a $100,000 bond. Butler has been charged with multiple counts of unlicensed practice of a health care profession with great bodily harm. Victims of Butler’s unlawful medical practices required legitimate hospitalization for severe infections, pain, bleeding, and injury and were left with scars and disfigurement.
The most recent unnamed victim described how she met Butler at the El Patio Motel where she received at least four silicone injections in each buttock during the months of September and October 2012. She was charged $200 per injection. She can only assume the clear substance Butler stored in plastic Pedialyte bottles and transferred to the syringes used for injections was silicone. Once the procedure was complete, he would clean up the incision site and close it with Krazy Glue.
One of Butler’s other “patients” claimed he received regular weekly injections from June up until October last year when he developed a serious infection and required surgery.
Each reported to authorities Butler warned they not report the injections to medical staff, telling one male victim, “If you say anything you’ll be sorry.”
Police believe there may still be other victims. They are asking them to contact Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-458-TIPS.
