A mother and daughter who ran an illegal beauty business in California performed a botched butt implant procedure that led to the death of their client. The two now face murder charges.

Libby Adame, 51, and her daughter Alicia Galaz, 23, allegedly killed 26-year-old Karissa Rajpaul on Oct. 15, 2019. The mother and daughter were arrested in August, according to the Los Angeles Police Department. 

Adame and Galaz called 911 once they realized the injections had gone wrong and then fled the scene.

LAPD Detective Robert Dinlocker said on Tuesday that Adame and Galaz had injected Rajpaul three different times with the silicone mixture into Rajpaul's buttocks. The third injection procedure is believed to have killed Rajpaul.

"Shortly afterward, the victim died as a result," a police spokesperson said.

Rajpaul's death was deemed a homicide "due to acute cardiopulmonary dysfunction and intramuscular/intravascular silicone injections," according to the medical examiner's office.

Police described the procedure as an “outlaw buttocks augmentation procedure.” This is because no medical certifications were found for either of the two women in California and that they were performing the procedures without proper training.

Galaz and Adame had reportedly been charging $3,500 to $4,000 per procedure for multiple "clients." Once the information was released about Rajpaul, many others told police that they were also victims of the scam.

Other victims have experienced infections, numbness, disfiguration, and swelling from illegal procedures. Galaz and Adame will face additional charges for putting multiple people in danger.

"We'd like to get to the ears of these young ladies that are taking the selfies and posting stuff on Instagram and all these other social media sites, that these invasive procedures are deadly. Side effects and catastrophic incidents ... are likely," he said. "There's no recourse, there's no contingency, there's no medical backup for these in-home procedures," said Dinlocker.

The mother and daughter have since been released on bond, according to jail records. Galaz is scheduled to appear in court in December. Adame is still awaiting a court date.
