Inmate convicted of giving fatal buttocks injection dies 58-year-old had served less than 3 ½ years of a life sentence The Associated Press

JACKSON — A Mississippi inmate convicted of giving fatal and illicit silicone buttocks injections to a woman has died at age 58. An autopsy is to be conducted on the remains of inmate Tracy Lynn Garner, after she died Sunday, the Mississippi Department of Corrections said in a statement Monday announcing the death. Garner had served less than 3 ½ years of a life sentence. Garner was convicted by a jury in 2014 of de- praved heart murder in the death of Karima Gor- don, a metro Atlanta resident who died eight days after receiving the injections in Jackson in 2012.
