Authorities say Mayhew and her mother drove to the Far Rockaway house to get silicone injections for a butt lift. During the procedure, which was being performed in the basement, Mayhew began to have difficulty breathing.
By the time Police responded they found her unresponsive. She was rushed to St. John’s Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. EMS attempted to revive Mayhew, but they were unsuccessful.
Mayhew’s mother told police it was at least her daughter’s fifth cosmetic surgery.
The auapect is suspected of administering illegal silicone injections in a makeshift medical room in the rented basement.
Police and the medical examiner’s office are investigating what lead to the death.
Mayhew was a freelancer at BET Networks and worked at their DC office. A spokesman released the following statement:
“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.”
Mayhew is just one of many victims who have died from black market buttocks injections
Mayhew’s autopsy was conducted Sunday, the day after her death. Results are still pending.
