‘Black Madam’ charged with third-degree murder in buttocks injection death

    A woman who calls herself “Black Madam” is charged with murder in the death of a London tourist police say died from a buttocks-enhancing silicone injection at a Philadelphia airport hotel.

    Philadelphia police say Padge Windslowe was arrested Monday night and charged with third-degree murder in last year’s death of 20-year-old Claudia Aderotimi.

    Windslowe was first arrested in February as police say she prepared to host a so-called “pumping party” at a Philadelphia house. Authorities say one of her customers had serious lung problems as a result of an injection.

     

    Authorities said they knew Windslowe injected Aderotimi but had been awaiting test results from the Food and Drug Administration before making a determination in Aderotimi’s death.

    A phone message left for the attorney in Windslowe’s February arrest wasn’t immediately returned.
