NY Woman Charged With Manslaughter For Failed Butt Lift Death
Words to the weary: backyard butt doctors have no malpractice insurance and the only way you’re going to realize something has gone awry is when you’re toe-tagged in the morgue.
Tamara Blaine, of Jamaica, Queens had to learn the hard way after she let Tamira Mobley give her a butt lift at a Liberty Inn Hotel in Manhattan.
The 22-year-old-woman suffered a seizure shortly after and was pronounced dead on July 8, 2013.
Mobley is now being charged with manslaughter after the coroner ruled the struggle a homicide.
The medical examiner ruled Blaine’s death a homicide Oct. 7, noting the puncture wounds in her buttocks. The official cause of death was “a systemic silicone emboly due to a cosmetic silicone injection of the buttocks,” officials said.
On Monday, cops busted self-described cosmetologist Tamira Mobley, 28, of Wood-Ridge, N.J., and charged her with manslaughter and felony assault. Sources said she killed the victim during a botched butt lift using silicone.
Mobley, who has a previous arrest for forgery in the Garden State, was arraigned in Manhattan Criminal Court on Tuesday. Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Bruna DiBiase ordered Mobley held in lieu of $100,000 bail.
On the day of the incident, Mobley used her credit card to pay for a room at the Liberty Inn, which bills itself as “your rendezvous for romance” and has hourly rates. About two hours later, she called the front desk and told an employee to call 911 because Blaine was having a seizure.
To say botched butt injections and such has become an epidemic wouldn’t edge the realm of hyperbole, either.
Mobley appeared in Manhattan Criminal Court on Tuesday, frazzled and stonefaced. No report as of yet what she will plea.
