A British woman who came to Philadelphia to enhance her buttocks met an untimely end when the illegal injections she received at an airport hotel room this week caused complications that led to her death yesterday, according to police. Now, local and federal authorities are looking for the two young women who administered the injections at a room in the Hampton Inn on Bartram Avenue.

Philadelphia police went to Ardmore on Thursday looking for evidence linking a singer known as "Black Madam" to buttocks injections that may have killed a tourist from London. Philadelphia detectives carried away 37 items, including a box of syringes, a bottle of sterile water for "injections," a price list for "lipotropic injections," and identification in three different names. They were taken from the apartment of Padge Victoria Windslowe, 41, the entertainer who allegedly was paid $1,800 for buttocks-enhancement injections that may have led to the death of Claudia Seye Aderotimi, 20, according to a police affidavit.

The affair was in 1993 and lasted three months. But one suburban doctor says the dalliance with "Black Madam" Padge Victoria Windslowe cost decades of personal anguish, demands for money, and involvement in a criminal probe of her silicone buttocks-enhancement business. James Taterka, a Montgomery County gastroenterologist, told a Philadelphia Common Pleas Court jury Tuesday that he was ashamed of cheating on his wife and humiliated that he and his medical practice had been dragged into Windslowe's murder trial.

Judge Jacquelyn Frazier-Lyde didn't buy the argument. She held the case for trial and refused to reduce the $750,000 bail for Black Madam, a transgender gothic hip-hop artist whose real name is Padge Victoria Windslowe.
