“These phony doctors prey on unsuspecting women, promising that they will make them look like Kim Kardashian and other desirable celebrities,” Yankowitz said in a statement. “Instead, these women end up with gross, debilitating deformities, amputations and, in the worst cases, death.” Bynum’s family have already filed a $1 billion lawsuit against the suspect, according to Yankowitz.
A bogus, back-alley butt doctor whose handiwork resulted in the death of a Harlem mom used a Manhattan Dunkin' Donuts as his waiting room, a lawyer for the victim’s family said Tuesday. Patients getting work done in the “doctor’s” phony medical office in Gramercy Park would wait at a nearby doughnut shop, where a “nurse” would meet them and escort them to the apartment for their silicone injection sessions. “These phony doctors prey on unsuspecting women, promising that they will make them look like Kim Kardashian and other desirable celebrities,” the attorney, Jack Yankowitz, said in a statement.
Jack Yankowitz, el abogado de la familia, comentó que Bynum fue llevada en camilla a Mount Sinai St. Luke's en coma. El abogado dijo que planea demandar al llamado "Butt Doctor" por un billón de dólares, una cifra que busca llamar la atención sobre la "horrible epidemia", expresó. Yankowitz expresó que las mujeres "impresionables", que carecen de los medios financieros para buscar atención médica adecuada, son atraídas por clínicas clandestinas que terminan por inyectarles “veneno de silicona".
Yankowitz says he intends to sue the so-called "Butt Doctor" for $1 billion -- a figure intended to bring attention to the "horrifying epidemic." The lawyer says "impressionable" women who lack the financial means to seek proper medical care are lured in by black-market practitioners who inject "silicone poison."
The family's lawyer, Jack Yankowitz, questioned whether the person who performed the procedure was licensed to do so.
'This is some sort of underground type of procedure - this is not something that's done by professional doctors,' he said.
He declined to comment further until he had spoken to police.
En un intento por parecerse a Kim Kardashian y conseguir su prominente trasero, la neoyorquina decidió acudir al mercado negro para inyectarse una sustancia que, según le dijeron, aumentaría el tamaño de sus nalgas. Dicho procedimiento, sin embargo, terminó siendo una trampa mortal que acabó con su vida el pasado viernes.
As the investigation into her untimely death continues, the family's lawyer, Jack Yankowitz, said the injection was given to Latesha by someone “representing himself as a doctor.” “This is some sort of underground type of procedure — this is not something that’s done by professional doctors,” he said, adding that the family is awaiting more information from police and the Manhattan district attorney’s office.
A mom of two died of toxic butt implants, her family says. Latesha Bynum of Harlem, New York went to a Manhattan doctor for butt implants on July 15, and became fatally sick soon after. After 12 days, Latesha’s family decided to take her off of life support on Thursday, and she died shortly after. She leaves behind two daughters, ages 13 and 8.
She died on July 27, three days before her 32nd birthday, according to attorney Jack Yankowitz, who says he's known and represented the woman's family for more than 15 years. Yankowitz says he intends to sue the so-called "Butt Doctor" for $1 billion -- a figure intended to bring attention to the "horrifying epidemic."
This is terrible! A New York mother of two recently became fatally ill after getting butt implants — and now an investigation is underway to figure out what went wrong!
According to CBS NY, 31-year-old Latesha Bynum received the injections from a building the Kips Bay neighborhood — which appears to be strictly residential.
Latesha Bynum, 31, received the injections on July 15 from a person “representing himself as a doctor,” according to Bynum’s family lawyer, Jack Yankowitz. “This is some sort of underground type of procedure — this is not something that’s done by professional doctors,” he said.
The duo, who filed the papers Thursday in Manhattan Supreme Court, also accused three security guards — Carlos Cline, Jimmy Valentine and Frederick Garrido — of holding them hostage. “They were a couple of old friends who decided to have a drink at a place that advertises as a gentlemen’s club, but there were no gentleman there,” attorney Jack Yankowitz, who filed the suit, told The Post.
Friedman called the cops in hopes of getting help, Yankowitz said. But the officers who came to the scene believed the club's account — even though they had access to security camera footage that would have cleared them, court papers maintain. Zurita and Friedman faced robbery charges. The Manhattan District Attorney's Office dropped the charges in April — after reviewing video footage, Yankowitz said.
