Suitland woman dies after receiving butt injections

SUITLAND, Md. (WUSA9) -- A Prince George's County woman died after receiving a butt-enlargement injection, NYPD confirmed to WUSA9.

Kelly Mayhew, 34, of Suitland, Md. died Saturday after getting the injection from an apparently unlicensed doctor. NYPD said there was "no indication" the woman who gave the shot had any kind of license.

Mayhew's mother told police her daughter received silicone injections, then started having trouble breathing. The suspect then fled, according to police.

Police say the injection was given in a basement apartment of a private residence in Queens.

Mayhew died at the hospital and police are still looking for the suspect. Police say the cause of death is pending.

BET Networks confirmed to WUSA9 that Mayhew was an employee and the network released the following statement Tuesday:

"We are saddened by the death of our colleague and friend, Kelly Mayhew. Our hearts go out to her family and we extend our deepest sympathies for their loss."

A GoFundMe page has been set up for Mayhew's funeral costs.
