The "Black Madam" Butt Injection Murder Case

     Born in 1970, Padge Victoria Windslowe didn't become a woman until she had a sex change operation in 2006. The aspiring hip-hop singer who billed herself as the "Black Madam" had also gone under the names Victoria Forrest Gordon and Genevieve D'Gordoni. The multi-named Windslowe also had a pair of social security numbers and lived in two places--one with her mother and stepfather in west Philadelphia and the other in an apartment in Narberth Pennsylvania.

     Although Windslowe had no medical training the Black Madam injected silicone into the hips and buttocks of young women who attended her "pumping parties" to acquire larger butts. Windslowe's clients paid between $700 and $2,000 for these cosmetic enhancement procedures carried out in Philadelphia area homes and hotel rooms.

     Melissa Lisath, a 27-year-old account manager for a construction company in the Bronx New York attended a September 2008 pumping party hosted by the Black Madam at a Red Roof Inn in Mount Laurel New Jersey. Lisath, one of several women in the motel room, paid $1,800 for the procedure. Windslowe identified herself as a plastic surgeon's assistant named Lillia.

     Six hours after receiving the painful silicone injections Milissa Lisath, back in the Bronx, started having trouble breathing. She began to sweat profusely then threw up blood. She was rushed to the hospital where she slipped into a coma. The chemicals Windslowe had injected into Lisath's body had migrated into her bloodstream then into her lungs. Three months after the pumping party Milissa Lisath came out of her coma. She weighed 80 pounds, couldn't walk and had a bone condition. Two years would pass before she was well enough to take care of herself.

     No criminal charges were filed against Windslowe in connection with Melissa Lisath's nearly fatal reaction to the Mount Laurel pumping party injections. The Black Madam continued to inject silicone into women who gathered in area homes and motels for the toxic cosmetic procedures.

     In December 2011 Claudia Seye Aderotimi, a 20-year-old college student from London England, flew to Philadelphia where in a nearby hotel room Windslowe administered the butt enlargement shots. Within hours of the injections Aderotimi complained of chest pains, had a heart attack then died suddenly of liver failure. (As reported in the U.K. Seye Aderotimi had been an exotic dancer.)

     On February 19, 2012 Padge Victoria Windslowe injected a 23-year-old exotic dancer at a pumping party held in Germantown Pennsylvania. The needle hit a blood vessel which carried the toxic chemicals to the unidentified woman's lungs. Treated for a blocked lung artery, the victim, after seven days in the hospital went home requiring extra oxygen to breathe. As a result of this woman's medical reaction to the Black Madam's injections the local prosecutor charged Windslowe with aggravated assault, simple assault and deceptive practices. Instead of taking Windslowe into custody the Philadelphia police placed her under surveillance.

     Ten days after the Black Madam had injected the 23-year-old exotic dancer the police raided a pumping party attended by five women in another Germantown home. They took Windslowe into custody and seized her equipment which included syringes, needles, chemicals and other butt enlarging paraphernalia such as cotton balls and Super Glue. A magistrate set Windslowe's bail at $10 million but a judge lowered it to $750,000. The Black Madam was confined under house arrest at the west Philadelphia home occupied by her mother and stepfather.

     Investigators linked the Black Madam to 14 pumping parties in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

     On July 23, 2012 the District Attorney's office in Philadelphia charged Padge Windslowe with third- degree murder in connection with the death of London tourist Claudia Aderotimi. The Delaware County Medical Examiner, Dr. Frederic Hellman, following a toxicological analysis of the injected substance found a direct link between the Black Madam's injection and the victim's death. According to the forensic pathologist the industrial grade silicone had traveled through Aderontimi's blood to her liver, lungs and brain. Dr. Hellman listed the victim's cause of death as pulmonary embolism.

     Padge Windslowe's attorney Christopher Mannix told reporters in October 2012 that he would challenge the state's toxicological conclusions at his client's upcoming trial.

      In 2014 Padge Windslowe rejected a plea bargain deal involving a sentence of 15 to 30 years. If convicted as charged she faced up to 40 years in prison.

     On February 17, 2015 in Philadelphia Pennsylvania Padge Windslowe went on trial for third-degree murder involving the death of Claudia Aderotimi of London England. The day before at a pre-trial motion hearing Windslowe informed the judge that her "body sculpting work" was so popular she was dubbed the Michelangelo of buttock injections. "God's blessed my hands with everything I touch," she said. "I make lots of money in lots of ways."

     Assistant District Attorney Carlos Nega in his opening statement to the jury said that the defendant's clients were not millionaires like Kim Kardashian. As a result these women had sought procedures that were cheap and risky.

     Defense attorney David Rudenstein in his opening remarks to the jurors, in referring to the prosecutor's jury presentation, said, "It's a nutso situation. It almost blows your mind listening to it." The lawyer added that his client would not have injected herself over the years if she didn't consider the butt-injection procedure safe.

     On February 19, 2015 two of the defendant's clients took the stand for the prosecution and testified that Windslowe charged $l,000 to $2,000 per injection session. The Black Madam had falsely held herself out as either an experienced nurse or a physician's assistant for a plastic surgeon. Both witnesses said they had endured frequent discomfort and worried they might develop serious health problems.

     On Monday March 2, 2015, after the defendant spent most of the day testifying on her own behalf under her attorney's direct examination, she complained of chest pains. Later that day she checked herself into a Philadelphia hospital where she remained for two days.

     When Padge Windslowe returned to the witness strand she testified that her patient Claudia Aderotimi had consumed alcohol shortly after her procedure in violation of the defendant's post-injection instructions.

     Throughout her testimony the defendant went out of her way to drop the names of famous people she claimed to have treated. She mentioned Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, model Amber Rose and Ed Rendell, the former governor of Pennsylvania. On cross-examination, prosecutor Vega asked the defendant why rich and famous people would choose an unlicensed practitioner over a Los Angeles surgeon. "Because I was the best," she said, "and I don't mean that to be cocky." (The prosecutor might have asked why Mr. Rendell would need a butt injection.)

      Padge Windslowe did not come across as a sympathetic witness. Her testimony did more harm than good. She didn't have a clue why she was on trial for third-degree murder and seemed to enjoy the attention.

     On March 9, 2015 the jury found the defendant guilty as charged. Philadelphia Common Pleas Judge Rose Marie DeFino-Nastasi, on June 11, 2015, sentenced Windslowe to ten to twenty years in prison. Upon her release Windslowe would serve six years on probation. At the sentencing hearing the judge called the "Black Madam" a narcissist.
