NEW YORK (AP) — The death of a Philadelphia woman who received a buttocks-enhancement procedure in New York City has been ruled a homicide.

Police said Tuesday the New York City Chief Medical Examiner has determined 48-year-old Lesbia Ayala died after receiving silicone injections in her buttocks and thighs.

Police were called to a home in the Bronx June 17 and found Ayala in cardiac arrest.

She was transported to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

It is unclear when she received the injections.

No arrests have been made, and police say the investigation is ongoing.
