A Harlem mom who underwent butt enhancement surgery ,died nearly two weeks later .
Latesha Bynum’s family and lawyer said she went to a shady clinic on July 15 to get silicone injections from someone claiming to be a doctor.Those injections cost the 31-year-old mom of two her life, her family said.
“My daughter was murdered,” Bertie Bynum, 51, Latesha’s distraught mother, told the Daily News on Monday“I want to know: Why did they kill my baby? Why did they do that. They wasn’t supposed to do that.”“You killed a mother, you killed a sister!”
Police provided only scant details about the office where Bynum got her injections on July 15.
Cop sources said she received the procedure in a residential building on E. 21st St. by First Ave., across the street from Stuyvesant Town, but didn’t provide the name of a medical clinic or a doctor.
Bynum received her injections at 1 p.m., sources said. At 11 p.m. that night, she called 911 from home, after she felt dizzy and started feeling chest pains, sources said.
Medics rushed her to Mount Sinai St. Luke’s Medical Center, where doctors declared her brain-dead.
