Those of you living in Port St. Lucie, Florida can finally breathe a sigh of relief. After nine days on the run, 23-year-old Kellie Thomas, aka the “BOTOX® Bandit” has been captured. No more will this degenerate seeker of perpetual youth sully your city’s good name. No longer will you have to wake up having to endure another day while she-of-the-paralyzed-under-eyes sits in her apartment laughing at society. But, how, you ask, how was this criminal mastermind caught? Before-and-After pictures.
Kellie Thomas, using the alias Ashley Parker, visited the Porlaro Hair and Cosmetic Surgery center on June 10th. Before she had BOTOX® injected into her lower eyes, Dr. Porlaro snapped a picture of her. Then, after a picture was taken. In all honesty, you can’t really see a difference. Actually the best part is her orange braces on her teeth. But we digress.
What Thomas then did was tell the receptionist that she was going out to her car to get her credit card to pay the $1225 bill. Shocker of shockers, she never returned. Dr. Porlaro, obviously furious, decided that the best thing to do was release her Before-and-After shots to the media. She was recognized by lots of people who called in tips. Upon her arrest, Thomas, still with black eyes from the BOTOX® procedure, said she “intended on paying the doctor later.” No later date was specified.
From Before-and-After to mugshots. One wonders why these people do it. Thomas is not the first, nor will she be the last, to BOTOX® and dash. It’s happened in Arizona, Nevada, and Florida. And so far only women are the suspects. Perhaps because we live in a society where youthful looks rule, and one in which stars behaving badly gets them a slap on the wrist, or maybe it’s that people will sacrifice freedom and comfort as long as they can look good during their layoff. Whatever the reason, things like this are sure to keep BOTOX® in the minds of people worrying about wrinkles everywhere. However, while you’re imagining what you might look like with wrinkle-free foreheads and eyes, remember the pathetic tale of Kellie Thomas and how she was caught.
