‘Black Madam’ Breaks Silence, Wants to Plead Guilty

The woman accused of killing a 20-year-old English woman with silicone butt injections in a Philadelphia Airport hotel wrote a letter to the Daily News.

In letters to the Daily News, Page Gordon (legally known as Padge Victoria Winslowe) — the woman who calls herself the Black Madam and is accused of murder for injecting silicone into women’s butts at “pumping parties” — has said she is sorry for what she’s done and wants to plead guilty. But she says she’s not a murderer!

The Daily News printed some of her letter:

“I swear that my aim was noble in nature. I simply really just loved the feeling of … helping others feel more beautiful, wonderful and magical about themselves — just as someone once helped me.”

In 2011, Gordon was charged with murder after an incident at a hotel near the Philadelphia airport. Gordon allegedly injected food- and industrial-grade silicone into 20-year-old Claudia Aderotimi. The silicone spread through her blood stream and organs, causing Aderotimi to have a pulmonary embolism that killed her. “Padge Windslowe’s arrogance and blatant disregard for human life is shocking,” District Attorney Seth Williams said two years ago.

“Please let us amicably put this case to rest without any more negative press and media attention on our city … which a trial like this would bring,” she wrote.

What type of negative attention would it bring out city? Not everyone in Philadelphia is into having silicone pumped into their ass. It’s not like we have an epidemic of it.


The Black Madam's court-appointed lawyer says it was "grotesquely inappropriate" that she contacted the Daily News.
