Carmen Olfidia Torres-Sanchez, 47, is a lawyer with the Colombian attorney general’s office, but she appears to take the doctor in juris doctor a bit too literally. Torres-Sanchez and her husband Ruben Dario Matallana-Galvas, 55, were arrested in the latest case of unlicensed cosmetic surgery — a surgery that led to the death of Elena Caro, 42. They face charges of second-degree murder. We previously looked at the case, but I was unaware that one of the defendants is actually a lawyer with the attorney general’s office. They were indicted yesterday.
Caro died after Matallana-Galvas allegedly injected her with silicon in a buttocks enhancement procedure. His surgical theater was the backroom of a Las Vegas tile store. The couple was arrested at the airport trying to get back to Colombia.
