Massage Therapist Faces Murder Charges in Death
A massage therapist, who allegedly also performed non-surgical cosmetic procedures for which she was not licensed, was booked on suspicion of murder in the death of a client who went into cardiac arrest at a Long Beach salon, police said Wednesday. Sandra Yaneth Slaughter, also known as Sandra Perez Gonzalez, was initially arrested on suspicion of possession of controlled substances following the Feb. 12, 2014, death of 36-year-old Hamilet Suarez of Long Beach, but was released without being charged.
Suarez went into cardiac arrest at Areli's Beauty Salon at 2113 Pacific Ave. -- where Slaughter rented space -- and was pronounced dead after being taken to a hospital, according to police. Officers were initially told that Suarez went to the salon for a massage, but went into medical distress before it began, police said.
Due to conflicting information, detectives were called in and learned that Slaughter was renting a treatment room at the salon, where she allegedly advertised that she performed not only massages, but non-surgical "vampire" facelifts as well as lip and butt augmentations, police said.
Inside the room she rented, investigators found medical equipment and multiple vials of controlled substances allegedly used for the facelift and augmentation procedures, according to the LBPD. Slaughter was then a recently licensed massage therapist but was not licensed to do the other procedures or administer any of the substances, according to police, who alleged at the time of her initial arrest that she had "been conducting these medical procedures from this location for approximately one month."
The suit -- filed in Los Angeles Superior Court -- alleges that Suarez went to the salon and was injected with "controlled substances" by Slaughter in a room she rented at the salon to perform her advertised "vampire facelift" services, in which a patient's own blood is re-injected into areas of the skin to treat wrinkles or augment certain parts of the body.
ω I guess there was a couple of warning sign here folks. Never accept a massage or a cosmetic procedure by someone with the surname "Slaughter".
The other is that any procedure with a name like "Vampire", "Werewolf", "Frankenstein" or "Kardashian" should probably be avoided like the fucking plague! Though I gotta admit, I'm sorta intrigued by the idea of augmenting my penis... ω
Doors of three Joplin massage parlors locked amid investigation
A few times a day, the owner of a neighboring business took cigarette breaks outside her shop's backdoor, facing an alley off Main Street. For almost six months, she saw men park their cars and walk across the alley, ducking into a black door with one small, heavily tinted window beneath a printed banner that reads "Royal Massage."
Sometimes, she said, her presence in the alley prompted the men to immediately turn back to their cars and leave. Suspicion ultimately built to the point that she notified Joplin police. Officers, she said, acknowledged that a prostitution probe was underway and urged patience.
"It was initially an FBI case that they asked for assistance with," Rives said regarding action against the three businesses. "And that assistance is primarily running through our task force officer who works for us, but is assigned to the FBI."
The businesses are Golden Massage, 1237 S. Range Line Road; Sunny Spa, 801 E. 15th St.; and Royal Massage, 1522 S. Main St.
“We choose only the best girls to provide you the best service,” a Backpage ad for Golden Massage reads. “New, young, lovely, friendly, Asian girls for your choice, allow us to provide the best relaxing pleasure experience session. You will be happy with young cute girls, 100 percent guaranteed. Life too short, you deserve to spoil yourself with ultimate pleasure relaxing session. Sensual pleasure and total satisfaction, period. One-hundred percent satisfied non-rushed fun time. Leave with big smile. All lovely and beautiful staff. Don’t be shy.”
ω Thank god for that concerned alley smoking citizen and the combined forces of the FBI and the Joplin police. Due to their tireless efforts, local Joplin guys have hundreds of untended erections that their wives wave off with dismissive excuses like "headache" "menstruation" and "yeast infections".
God forbid these shady characters be able to free these glorious loads into the oiled hands of a golden massage practitioner. I tried to explain to my pooch "Hans Gruber" about the Feds shutting down the heinous handjob trade rather than looking into more serious like say "terrorism" or "people who wipe from the front back to the back" and he gave me this look. ω
