Police Search Home Of Alleged Butt-Lift Practitioner
PHILADELPHIA (CBS/AP) — Police searched a home in Lower Merion Township belonging to a person of interest they believed administered silicone injections that killed a 20-year-old Claudia Aderotimi (above) earlier this week.
Police say the person of interest has no medical qualifications.
“We encourage that individual to come to us and explain some of the things that happened,” said Captain Ben Nash of the Philadelphia Police Department. “We did recover some items that are of an evidentiary manner, things that pertain to this investigation.”
It is not clear what charges may be filed, and no charges are expected until the medical examiner finishes an autopsy.
Police have cleared a New Jersey resident in the case of a British woman who died after receiving cosmetic injections in her buttocks at a hotel near Philadelphia International Airport.
Philadelphia police Lt. John Walker said the Bergen County, N.J., woman was not in the hotel room during the procedure but she helped arrange the procedure and is now considered a witness. Her name has not been released.

Walker said the New Jersey woman wasn’t in the Hampton Inn hotel room when Aderotimi and a friend received their injections.
The friends flew from London to Philadelphia on Saturday. Aderotimi died Monday after suffering from chest pains and breathing trouble.
