Man Posing as Doctor Charged in Bogus Butt Injection Death of Mom: Cops
Jose Robusto is accused of posing as a doctor and injecting Suyima Torres, 28, with "an oily, yellow substance."
A Venezuelan man was charged over the weekend in the death of a Miami mother whose cosmetic butt injections caused a fatal embolism.
Police say Jose Robusto, 43, posed as a Venezuelan doctor and injected an oily, yellow substance with a plastic syringe into 28-year-old Suyima Torres' buttocks for $1,500 back in April 2013, the AP reports.

The Miami woman returned to Robusto's so-called clinic — which was reportedly only licensed to offer massages — days later for a second injection for $800, police allege.
Following that injection, Torres died of what medical examiners ruled was an embolism.
Torres left behind two young daughters.
After the death, authorities say Robusto fled to Venezuela. He was arrested Friday when he returned to Miami.
