 Penis Enlargement Injection Turns Fatal

Kasia Rivera, 35, has a lot of explaining to do as she faces the charge of causing a man's death with an injection of silicone, intended to enlarge his penis.

22-year-old Justin Street, father of two children had approached Rivera in the first week of May for a penile enlargement procedure.


She had administered a silicone shot to Street's penis. Unfortunately, Street died the next day. After an investigation, the medical examiner determined the cause of death to be due to silicone embolism and his death was ruled a homicide.

Rivera had no medical license or training and she usually performed the procedures in her apartment. If convicted, Rivera could face up to ten years in prison on the charges of manslaughter causing the death of a young man.
