Last year a 20-year-old Claudia Aderotimi, from London, England died after receiving buttock injections at a hotel in the U.S. near Philadelphia International Airport. University of West London student Claudia had flown to Philadelphia where she paid $1,600 dollars for the "butt boost" op, carried out at a budget hotel.
According to police, 42 year old Padge Victoria Windslowe, aka the "Black Madam", was arrested Wednesday night as she was preparing to host a "pumping party" where she would be illegally injecting clients. Windslowe has been a "person of interest" in the death of 20-year-old Claudia Aderotimi, said Philadelphia police Lt. John Walker. Windslowe faces charges that include aggravated assault and deceptive practices after one of her clients, an exotic dancer, suffered serious pulmonary problems after an injection, according to prosecutors, Windslowe‘s was arraigned on Thursday and her bail was set at $10 million dollars.
Walker said we knew she was the injector back in the 2011 Aderotimi case, the investigation has lingered as police waited for a ruling on the cause of death.
Fredric Hellman, Delaware County Medical Examiner, is "striving to bring the investigation into the death of Claudia Aderotimi to as speedy a resolution as possible," a spokeswoman said. Hellman is waiting for results from a Food and Drug Administration lab, the spokeswoman said. Claudia had complained of chest pain and difficulty breathing following the procedure. No charges have been filed in the Aderotimi case.
Lt. Walker said Windslowe will most likely be charged with murder in the Aderotimi case if the medical examiner can rule Windslowe's injection caused the death of Claudia Aderotimi.
According to Lt. Walker, during Windslowe's arrest, police seized vials of superglue, needles, gloves, bottles and other items. Police are now testing the material that Windslowe was allegedly injecting into her clients, trying to identify what the compounds are. Investigators also removed Black Madam fliers; three cell phones; three identification cards under three different names; credit card in the name of Vanessa Brown and prescriptions for Padge Windslowe. All together 37 items were seized from the Main Line apartment of the "Black Madam".
Windslowe's next court date is set for March 13th.
