NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A New Jersey woman who police say injected a young man’s penis with silicone, resulting in his death, has been charged with manslaughter.

The Essex County Prosecutor’s Office said Friday that 34-year-old Kasia Rivera gave 22-year-old Justin Street the injection on May 5. He died the next day.

His death was ruled a homicide following an investigation and a medical examiner’s determination that Street died of silicone embolism.

Rivera also faces charges for the unauthorized practice of medicine. It was not immediately clear if she has a lawyer. She was arrested Friday and is being held on $75,000 bail.

Both are from East Orange.

    If silicone,did anything to increase the penis, every man in American would have a few gallons on stand-bye!

    Y did this boy/man let this crazy ass women inject this crap into his penis? Did he want it to be longer, harder, thicker or what? I think big ones are over rated on TV commercials and ads. If there was a problem he should have look it up or went to a real Dr. and got some much better answers then this. Maybe they would have sent him to a sex therapists to teach him other ways to please if it was that bad.

        Harverd??? Really? I am thinking the reason that this person went to see this quack is truly due to ignorance.

    Vanity,Vanity!-To Death with it!

    Illiteracy is a hell of a thing. Silicone in breast makes them firm and elsewhere in the body so why not the penis. Did she think he could have gone around with a constant firm penis? Nature has a reason – firm at times, soft other times.

    well….. IT WON’T BE LONG NOW

    CA is working this invol manslaughter thing to the hilt. Dont kill your client as a medical provider. We still loose 10s of thousands annually to poor quality health care. Maybe we need to take a better look at it. Most states make it near impossible to sue. This silicone is a stretch and a cold hard death.

    1. Jean says:

      She wasn’t a “medical provider” That’s why she is being charged with unauthorized practice of medicine. When are men going to ever learn that size is not that important, it’s how you use what you have? Gentlemen: If a woman is only interested in size and teases or ridicules you for not having what she thinks she needs, you don’t need someone that shallow and ignorant

    Sounds like material for Jay Leno.

    1. KPMc says:


      Neither Leno or this story is funny at all.

      Perfect for him… even if there was a joke in there I am sure he would butcher it.

      1. ELLEN LEACH says:

        You hit the nail right on the head with this one!

  13. Carlos Liriano says:
