Woman Killed By Amateur Boob-Job
Two factors drew 36-year-old Thi Hanh Lan Tran to an unlikely surgical facility at the back of a dingy downtown Toronto rooming house last month: The price for the operations was about 30 per cent lower than at an accredited clinic, and the so-called surgeon spoke Ms. Tran's native tongue, Vietnamese.
Yesterday, Toronto Police Detective Alan MacDonald observed that several women who attended Ms. Tran's funeral in March had visible scars from recent plastic surgery on their faces. Police suspect that, like Ms. Tran, many of those women had been patients of Minh Tam Thi Le, 36, who came to Canada last October on a student visa to study hairdressing.http://www.globeandmail.com/gam/National/20010425/UBUSTMSB.html
