Woman Known As “Black Madam” Sought in Injection Death Probe

Jeremy Roebuck and Bonnie Cook, Philadelphia Inquirer, February 11, 2011

A musical artist who advertised buttock enhancement injections on YouTube under her performing name “Black Madam” is believed to be responsible for the death of one of her clients earlier this week in Philadelphia, police said in court filings.

Officers searched the apartment of Padge Victoria Windslowe, 41, after the several witnesses identified her as the woman who injected aspiring actress Claudia Seye Aderotimi, 20, with what she claimed was silicone in an airport hotel room earlier this week.

Aderotimi, who had traveled from London and allegedly paid Windslowe $1,800 for the procedure, died hours later at Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital in Darby, complaining of shortness of breath and chest pains.

Although investigators have not yet located Windslowe, several witnesses identified the same woman under different aliases, according to a search warrant affidavit for her apartment near the Lower Merion’s Suburban Square shopping center.


Theresa Gyamfi, 20, who traveled, with Aderotimi from England, knew her as Lillian Languri. She told investigators that she had witnessed Windslowe inject her friend and underwent a similar procedure herself.
