DALLAS – A Dallas woman is facing murder charges after allegedly injecting illegal silicone into a Fort Worth woman’s buttocks.
That old chestnut..
Pamela Burnley, 55, was taken into custody Thursday for the death of 35-year-old Latora King in May.
According to an arrest warrant affidavit, King’s family took her to the hospital a few days after she paid someone to perform a procedure on her buttocks. She developed a fever and died from a silicone pulmonary embolism.
The Tarrant County Medical Examiner collected samples of the injection substance during King’s autopsy. He ruled her death a homicide when tests confirmed those samples were silicone.

Detectives identified Burnley after searching through King’s cellphone and interviewing her friends and family members.
King’s phone contained text messages that she exchanged with a contact named “Jag Booty,” as well as photos that she took in front of a mirror shortly after the procedure. Now there is a teriffying thought.
“From the photographs, it does not appear that the procedure was performed by a physician,” the affidavit states.
