Murder charges laid after woman dies from illegal buttocks fillers

A mother and daughter in Los Angeles are facing murder charges after allegedly performing illegal cosmetic procedure on a woman who later died.

People magazine says Libby Adame, 51, and Alicia Galaz performed a third round of buttocks enhancement injections on 26-year-old Karissa Rajpaul in their home in October 2019.

But something went wrong and the mom and daughter called 911 and then fled.

Rajpaul died the same day in hospital from multiple silicone embolisms in the heart, brain and kidneys.

The mother and daughter were not the specialists they claimed to be, police say, and have been charged with murder.

“They were mixing them with chemicals and other substances that clearly are not appropriate for any medical procedure that would be performed on a human,” LAPD Deputy Chief Alan Hamilton told the news station ABC 7.<

He added: “These individuals have no medical training. They’re not experienced, and they’re putting people’s lives at risk.”

Police allege that Adame and Galaz have been performing illicit buttocks augmentations out of their home since 2012, charging nearly $14,000 for three silicone injection sessions, according to KCAL.

Adame and Galaz were released soon after their arrests on bonds of $1 million each.

According to police, Rajpaul was a South African native who moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in the adult film industry.
