NYC police hunt for fake doctor whose buttocks injection killed Maryland woman

Police are looking for a fake doctor linked to the death of a Maryland woman who traveled to New York City to receive silicone buttocks injections in a basement apartment.

New York police said Wednesday that the woman suspected in the death of 34-year-old Kelly Mayhew fled after she fell ill.

The Suitland, Maryland, resident was found unresponsive at the Queens apartment on Saturday. Her mother performed CPR and called 911.

The Daily News of New York (http://nydn.us/1Fu2IA0 ) says Mayhew celebrated her voluptuous figure on Facebook.

It says her final post featured a photo of curvy performers Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj, and the caption "love."

Illicit silicone injections have killed dozens of people in the United States, including a New York woman in 2013. A Philadelphia woman was convicted of murder in March for administering a fatal buttocks injection.
