A Medical Examiner Has Ruled A Woman’s Heart Attack As Homicide

A Philadelphia has died from illegal butt injections, and medical examiners are ruling it a homicide.
According to the New York Post, forty-nine-year-old Lesbia Ayala got illegal butt enhancement shots in the Bronx, New York. The botched enhancement was done by a black-market beautician who has served time in prison for her previous illegal injections.
Ayala was found having a heart attack in her Castle Hill home on June 17th. She was reportedly transferred to Jacobi Medical Center, where she later died.
This week, police announced that Ayala’s passing had been ruled a homicide. The medical examiner claims Ayala’s heart attack came from “systemic silicone embolism syndrome from the cosmetic silicone injections of buttocks and thighs.”
New York Daily News reported that if the injections are not “done by a properly trained and licensed physician, silicone injections can cause embolisms that can stop a patient’s heart.”
Sources close to the case reported that Ayala had received butt injections in the past as well.
Officials have not announced that Whalesca Castillo gave Ayala the shot that led to her death. But they did confirm that Castillo was in the room where Ayala had her heart attack. Therefore, she has not yet been arrested or charged in Ayala’s death.
According to Newsweek, Castillo’s record goes back to 2009. Court documents show that Castillo imported 21 gallons of liquid silicone from the Dominican Republic. She reportedly charges clients $1,000 to inject their butts with the illegal silicone and sealing their open wounds with Krazy Glue.
If any of her clients experienced leakage after the procedure, she encouraged them not to seek medical help.
According to the New York Daily News, one of her clients reached out for help because she was experiencing difficulties. Castillo reportedly directed her to, “Buy some crazy glue and put it on,” through text message.
“We don’t believe that she will stop what she’s doing,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Sarah said during a 2014 hearing.
It was stated that this was Castillo’s “main source of income.”
