Police are looking for Dallas transgender woman Alicia Clarke and Denise Ross in connection with the death of Wykesha Reid. The pair are suspected of operating an illegal business called ‘pumping’ where industrial silicone is injected into the buttocks to increase their size.
On February 19, 34-year-old Wykesha Reid was found dead inside of a business that performs eyelash extensions in the 3800 block of East Side Avenue by Alicia Clarke who called 911 at 7:50 a.m.
Clarke told police Ried came to the shop the evening before saying she wasn’t feeling well. Clarke said that she locked Clarke inside the business and returned the next morning and found her dead.

The Dallas County Medical Examiner’s Office said they found a silicone-type substance and fresh injection marks on Wykesha Reid’s buttocks.
Police believe Reid had a medical emergency while the injections were being performed and subsequently died.
