Numerous women (and men) have already died from illegal butt injections, but it’s not stopping more from getting them. A 22-year-old Missouri woman, Daysha Phillips, has passed away four days after getting butt injections in a hotel room. 

Reports Fox Carolina:

“The victim went into respiratory distress, it was determined by family members what had occurred that could have led up to it,” said Chief Miklos Hurocy of the Edmundson Police Department. “They added two and two together and we were notified.”

Police said they do not yet know how much Phillips and the three other women paid to get the injections in a hotel room at the Drury Inn in Edmundson, or what exact substance was injected into the women.

The illegal procedure, and occasional subsequent deaths, are not as rare as one might think, according to Dr. Richard Moore, medical director of The Lifestyle Center. Dr. Moore said illegal injection or silicone, or even “Fix a Flat” tire inflator is something he hears about on a regular basis.

“There are people who are actually advised not to go to the hospital by the person who did the injection and ended up dying. It’s not that uncommon of an occurrence with these type of injections,” said Dr. Moore.

At this time it is unknown what substance Phillips was injected with. Reportedly none of the other women who went through the procedure have fallen ill.
