“Black Madam” Person of Interest in Butt Implant Case.
By Teresa Masterson
Philadelphia Police are looking for a singer known as “Black Madam” as a person of interest in the investigation into the death of a 20-year-old British woman who died shortly after receiving buttocks enhancements in a Philadelphia hotel room.
Claudia Seye Aderotimi died 1:32 a.m. Tuesday after she apparently flew to Philadelphia with three friends to get silicone injections into her buttocks at a Hampton Inn in southwest Philly.
Police executed a search warrant on the Ardmore apartment of 41-year-old Padge-Victoria Windslowe Thursday. According to the police search warrant, witnesses say Windslowe administered the injections.
Windslowe, also known as “Black Madam” on her Facebook page and music website, was not at home at the time of the search and police are still trying to locate her.
According to the search warrant obtained by NBC Philadelphia, one of Aderotimi’s friends, 20-year-old Theresa Gyamfi, identified Windslowe in a photo as the person who injected silicone into her and Aderotimi Monday.
Gyamfi told police that she and Aderotimi came to the U.S. to meet a woman they knew as “Sasha.” Sasha arranged for the women to meet a woman who called herself Lillian Lang, who would perform the buttocks enhancements.
Gyamfi said that Windslowe, a.k.a. Lang, had performed a similar silicone injection treatment on her in November 2010. Gyamfi later identified the woman she knew as Lang to be Windslowe, according to the search warrant.
Gyamfi told police she paid Windslowe $1,800 for the silicone injections.
An Immigration Custom’s Enforcement agent had been watching the Hampton Inn for possible drug activity at the time of the butt injections. Because the hotel was under surveillance, police ran the license plates of a New Jersey woman who left the hotel on the day of the enhancement procedures.

The license plate identification brought police to 30-year-old Scheffee L. Wilson of Saddle River, N.J. Gyamfi identified Wilson as the woman she knew as “Sasha” who set up the butt injection appointments for the women with Windslowe.
Wilson told police that she knew Windslowe as Lillian, and that Lillian had a YouTube music video under the name “Black Madam.”
With that information, police found the video and contacted the people who directed and produced the video. The directors told police that “Black Madam’s” real name was Padge-Victoria Windslowe, according to checks with which she paid them.
The directors also confirmed that she lived at 104 W. Montgomery Ave in Ardmore, and one of the directors said he had been to Windslowe’s apartment several times.
Police confirmed with the property owner that Windslowe did indeed live there and executed a search warrant, looking for any medical supplies, gauze, syringes, Krazy GIue, silicone, bandages, her black 2002 Jaguar, any device capable of e-mail or voicemail, ID, computers, fruit’s of the crime.
It is not yet known what the police found in Windslowe’s apartment.

THE LAST WORD
On the Question: What thing about humanity surprises you the most?, the Dalai Lama responded with these words:
“Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices his money to recuperate his health.
Then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present, and as a result he does not live in the present or the future.
He lives as if he’s never going to die, and then he dies having never really lived.”
