Crime Stories with Nancy Grace: YOUNG MOM DEAD from DIET SURGERY

After having three children, 34-year-old Markita McIntyre is worried about her weight.

Having heard about weight loss surgery, Kiki researched the most common bariatric surgery and found it costs around $18,000 in the US. In Tijuana, Mexico, a doctor will do the same surgery for around $4,000. McIntyre has gastric sleeve surgery in Mexico and dies.

Two years later, Lisa Marie Presley, the only child of music icon, Elvis Presley, also dies from complications of bariatric surgery.  The LA County Medical Examiner says Presley suffered from a small bowel obstruction that likely developed after she underwent bariatric surgery years ago.

The morning she died, Presley complained of abdominal pain and was later found unresponsive at home.
