PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A Philadelphia woman who calls herself the “Black Madam” and is accused of giving illegal buttocks-enhancement injections has had her bail slashed.
Padge Windslowe’s bail was lowered from $10 million to $750,000 at a court hearing Friday. Defense lawyer Chris Mannix says it’s not clear if the 42-year-old Windslowe can post the lower amount.
She’s charged with aggravated assault and deceptive practices.
Police say an exotic dancer suffered serious lung problems following a buttocks enhancement injection last month.
Meanwhile, police say Windslowe remains “a person in interest” in the death of a 20-year-old London woman. She died after receiving injections at a Philadelphia airport hotel last year.
Authorities are waiting on test results from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration before issuing a cause of death.
