EDMUNDSON, Mo. – Police suspect a woman died from complications after receiving illegal, cosmetic injections in her buttocks at a hotel room in the St. Louis suburb of Edmundson.
Edmundson Police Chief Miklos Hurocy says officers investigating 22-year-old Daysha Phillips’s death last week are awaiting the medical examiner’s report. Hurocy says he’s “pretty confident” the medical examiner will rule the case a homicide.
Phillips died July 30 when she was taken off of life support at a hospital.
Hurocy says friends of the Florissant woman had taken her to the hospital four days earlier after she had difficulty breathing following the procedure.
