A New Jersey woman who allegedly gave a Queens woman an illegal butt lift has been arrested in connection to her death, according to police and published reports.
Tamira Mobley, 28, of Wood-Ridge, N.J., is accused of injecting a silicone-like substance into the buttocks of Tamara Blaine, a 22-year-old Jamaica resident, while the two were inside of the Liberty Inn Hotel in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District on July 8, cops said.
Mobley was allegedly performing an illegal butt lift procedure on Blaine when she was killed, reports said.
Authorities found Blaine inside the room with seizure-like symptoms, according to police. She was taken to the hospital where she was later pronounced dead. At the time, the medical examiner determined the death to be suspicious, cops said.
After noticing puncture wounds on her buttocks during an autopsy, the medical examiner ruled the death a homicide in October, according to published reports.
Mobley has been charged with assault and second-degree manslaughter, police said.
