A woman has died after being dropped off at the hospital unconscious with multiple injection marks in her buttocks, New York police said.
She was brought to a hospital in the Bronx without pants, and authorities are investigating the injections and what led to his death, PIX11 and other outlets reported.
Two women, whose names have not been mentioned, dropped off the “unconscious and unresponsive” 53-year-old man at Jacobi Medical Center on Feb. 15, the NYPD told McClatchy News in a statement. She was pronounced dead at the facility shortly after being taken there.
“The investigation is still ongoing” and “the medical examiner will determine the cause of death,” police said.
The two women said they found the 53-year-old near a graveyard and that she had asked them to help her, according to ABC7.
Doctors at the hospital told the outlet that the woman had been injected with an unknown substance.
The NYPD was looking for the women on the morning of February 16 but did not find them, PIX11 reported.
Police did not say whether any enforcement action had been taken regarding the woman’s death and did not confirm her identity “pending proper notification from the family” in the statement to McClatchy News.
In November, a woman was arrested after being accused of giving silicone butt injections in 2018 to a deceased woman in Houston, Texas, McClatchy News previously reported.
In September, a mother and daughter were charged with murder after being charged with giving a deceased 26-year-old woman illegal buttock injections in California, McClatchy News reported.
