Police connect buttocks injection death to Lower Merion resident

    Police are zeroing in on the person responsible for injecting silicone into the buttocks of Claudia Seye Aderotimi. The 20-year-old British woman died Tuesday after being administered the enhancement shot by an unlicensed person in a Southwest Philadelphia hotel.

    The alleged injector lives in Lower Merion, and police searched the home yesterday. The Daily News reports several pieces of evidence were taken from the home. Police are now waiting for the injector, who wasn’t home during the search, to come clean.

    To recap, a British woman was injected by a suburban resident, and the whole thing was set up by a woman in North Jersey. Something tells us Philadelphia will still get the heat for this.
