Photo: Colombian Couple Performed Surgery With no License
A Colombian man and his wife have been arrested and face murder charges, after a woman died as a result of an illegal surgery performed at the couple’s Las Vegas pseudo-clinic, behind a tile store.
The victim, 42 year old Elena Caro, was pronounced dead at a hospital close to the place where she had been dropped off a few hours earlier for a “butt enhancement.”
Neighbors say the pair offered procedures including breast implants, and facial cosmetic surgery.
Police arrested Ruben Daio Matallana-Galvas, and his wife, Carmen Olfidia Torres-Sanchez, as they attempted to board a flight back to Colombia, in an attempt to elude the consequences of the botched plastic surgery they performed on Caro.
At the time of the arrest, Matallana-Galvas admitted to only be liscenced to perform homeopathy in Colombia.
The couple faces murder charges and are being held without bail at the Clark County Detention Center.
