JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -
A Jackson woman is under arrest and faces a depraved heart murder charge.
Tracey Lynn Garner was a male who underwent a sex change, according to investigators. She was arrested at her home on Peyton Avenue in Jackson Wednesday for allegedly injecting Karima Gordon of Atlanta with what may be counterfeit silicone used to enhance breasts and buttocks.
Neighbors say they were shocked to find out what was going on inside. They said Garner was nice but kept to herself.
According to Hood, the victim was an Atlanta military veteran who wanted to be a model. She traveled to Jackson in March for the illegal injection.
"She and one of her friends traveled here, paid Mr. Garner $1,500 at his address 1020 Peyton Avenue in Jackson to have silicone implants in her buttocks," said Attorney General Jim Hood. "Thirty minutes after leaving she became violently ill."
The Atlanta woman died three days later in an Atlanta hospital.
The connection to the defendant, Tracey Lynn Garner, formerly Morris Garner, was made online, according to Hood.
"This started in a chat room," added Hood. "Some woman named Pebbles in New York City, an African American female, she paid $200 to make the connection with Garner here in Jackson."
The FDA and the Mississippi Board of Medical of Licensure were also involved in the six-month investigation.
The Attorney General encourages anyone who may have received a buttocks or breast augmentation from Tracey Garner to call the Consumer Protection Division at 1-800-281-4418.
The Attorney General fears there could be more victims out there. He would not reveal what was taken from the home last week during Garner's arrest.
