MARIA Cruz had been fatally duped into going to what she believed to be a licensed dermatologist for simple laser surgery.

Her “dermatologist,” Dean Faiello, posed as a real doctor and performed the “dubious” surgery on Cruz.

He will reveal the details of her death in an exclusive documentary with ABC’s 20/20.

Cruz was a Filipino-American immigrant who became a successful investment banker.

Her life was filled with positivity and promise before she came to Faiello to treat a cosmetic condition called Black Hairy Tongue (BHT).

“She was forgiving and supportive,” Faiello says in the documentary.

Faiello, 63, had not received his medical clearance and was unable to have surgery in New York.

But in his apartment on West 16th Street in Manhattan, he housed patients and performed fraudulent surgeries.

He performed the surgeries while nursing his cocaine addiction.

He continues, “I know I was drunk and high during her last treatment.”

Cruz began convulsing during the surgery, prompting Faiello to put lidocaine on her tongue.

“She was in a lot of discomfort and it was a long course of treatment and I was using too many vials of lidocaine,” Faiello told ABC’s David Scott.

Cruz was beginning to show signs of stress, which prompted Faiello to call a friend who was a practicing doctor.

“[Maria] was completely exhausted at this point. I put my head on her chest and checked that she was breathing and she had no vital signs,” Faiello said.

Cruz would die on his table.

Rather than call the police, Faiello packed her body in a suitcase and took her home.

After spending a week with her body in his garage, he decided to dispose of the body by mixing her remains into the cement used to repair his driveway.

He explains: “There was a panel in the garage that needed repairing. And I came up with the idea of ​​making Maria a part of this record. I just can’t believe I did it, but I did it. “

He then sold his house.

Cruz’s family reported her missing after missing two days of work in a row.

Her body was discovered in the cement almost a year later.

Faiello had already attempted to flee to Costa Rica – he would be extradited to the US.

Faiello eventually entered into a plea agreement and pleaded guilty to first-degree assault.
