JACKSON, Mississippi (AP) — Defense attorneys for a woman accused of killing a Georgia woman in 2012 through illicit silicone buttocks injections are attacking the prosecution’s evidence.
Under questioning from defense lawyer John Colette, Mississippi attorney general’s investigator Lee McDivitt testified Wednesday that investigators have not matched the silicone seized from defendant Tracey Lynn Garner’s house with the substance found in the body of Karima Gordon.
Colette’s questioning has also focused on information provided to McDivitt by Gordon’s family that Gordon had received multiple other buttocks injections before she and a friend traveled to Jackson to Garner’s house.
Authorities initially identified Garner as a man, Morris Garner, after the arrest. Her attorney has said Garner was born male and had sex reassignment surgery.
