A Maryland woman died after receiving a butt-enlargement injection, according to the NYPD.
Kelly Mayhew, 34, of Suitland, Md. died Saturday after getting the injection from an apparently unlicensed doctor. NYPD said there was “no indication” the woman who gave the shot had any kind of license.
Mayhew’s mother told police her daughter received silicone injections, then started having trouble breathing. The suspect then fled, according to police.
Police say the injection was given in a basement apartment of a private residence in Queens.
Mayhew died at the hospital and police are still looking for the suspect. Police say the cause of death is pending.
BET Networks confirmed that Mayhew was an employee and the network released the following statement Tuesday:
“We are saddened by the death of our colleague and friend, Kelly Mayhew. Our hearts go out to her family and we extend our deepest sympathies for their loss.”
According to Mayhew’s mother, her daughter received 5 injections previously.
