Padge Victoria Windslowe, 42, aka Black Madam, has been charged with the murder of tourist Claudia Seye Aderotimi, 20, who died in 2011, when Windslowe allegedly gave her a butt injection on Feb. 7 at a hotel near the Philadelphia International Airport. During the procedure, the syringe hit a blood vessel, sending the silicone into Aderotimi’s blood stream. According to the toxicology results, recently received from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Aderotimi died from a blood clot lodged in her lung that was caused by complications of the silicone injection. The coroner ruled Aderotimi’s death a homicide. Though the wait for the toxicology results has been a long one, the seriousness of the situation did nothing to dampen Windslowe’s enthusiasm for administering illegal butt injections, and she was arrested on February 29, 2012, after another butt injection “client” nearly died from the injection.

District Attorney Seth Williams condemned Windslowe’s actions during a press conference Tuesday saying, “Padge Winslowe’s arrogance and blatant disregard for human life is shocking … The defendant put her own greed above the public’s health and safety and instead of being remorseful, she bragged about prospective clients.” Windslowe, who has been in police custody since February, unable to pay the $750,000 bail, was charged Monday with third-degree murder, conspiracy, reckless endangerment, possessing an instrument of crime and unauthorized practice of medicine in the death of Claudia Seye Aderotimi. She is scheduled for a preliminary hearing August 8, and faces from 44 to 88 years in prison if convicted.
