A woman accused of being the unlicensed cosmetic practitioner known as “Jag Booty” faces a murder charge after Latora King, a 35-year-old Fort Worth woman, died from a silicone injection in her buttocks.
Ms King reportedly paid $1,000 to Pamela Burnley for the bottom-enlarging procedure on May 11 this year.
Burnley, 55, denies having administered the fatal injection and maintains that she had only met up with Ms King in a restaurant’s parking lot because she was selling some handbags.
However, text messages between the two made public by NBC Fort Worth reveal that straight after the meeting, Ms King wrote “Thank you so much. I made it (home),” to which Burnley – listed in the dead woman’s contacts as “Jag Booty” – replied “Yes baby lay down.”
A few days later, Ms King texted again, attaching photos of her “grotesquely misshapen buttocks” covered in bloody gauze pads.
The following morning, Ms King’s family took her to Texas Health Huguley Hospital, where she later died from a pulmonary embolism.
After a post-mortem revealed that the cause of death to have been a silicon injection, detectives began a murder investigation.
When interviewed, Ms King’s sister told them she had previously undergone a similar injection procedure that was performed by “Jag.”

She added that that there used to be two people in the city that were known for performing the silicon injection procedures.
“One of the persons went to jail for murder because she killed one of her clients and ‘Jag’ was the other person,” court documents state.
Local reports name the other buttock-enlargement specialist as Denise "Wee-Wee Booty" Ross, who was jailed for 60 years in 2017 for causing the death of 34-year-old Wykesha Reid after an unlicensed cosmetic procedure.
Burnley denies ever having administered bottom-enhancing injections but when detectives checked her texts and social media messages they found messages from King and other clients inquiring about butt injections, a police affidavit states.
“Based upon the messages it is clear that Pamela Burnley had a history of providing illegal butt injections,” detectives said in the affidavit.
Burnley is believed to be currently on bail but her attorney, Henry Campbell of Dallas, has declined to comment on the case.
