Tamara Blaine, a 22-year-old single mother from Queens, arranged to meet Tamira Mobley, a 28-year-old woman claiming to be a cosmetologist, in a downtown pay-by-the-hour New York City hotel. Mobley paid for two hours at the hotel, where she was expecting to administer a silicone injection to Blaine. The two had communicated with each other via email and met several times prior to carry out the buttocks-enhancement procedure Blaine had requested.
According to the New York Post, Mobley’s injection went awry, causing Blaine to become non-responsive. Mobley alerted the authorities about Blaine’s whereabouts, but the injection ultimately proved fatal. The autopsy report eventually confirmed that the silicone injection entered Blaine’s veins, asphyxiating her.
A new report from DNA Info reveals that Blaine’s mother was not notified about her daughter's death for over a month after she went missing. In fact, she was only made aware of Blaine’s passing when she received a bill from the hospital emergency room.
Lola Blaine claimed that no one assisted her in the search for her missing daughter.
“When I lost her, nobody helped me. When I looked for her, nobody was there for me. Everybody ignored me. That’s just the way it is. I called the police. They didn’t do anything. She died. She was 22 years old,” she said.
It took law enforcement officials even longer to arrest Mobley in connection with Blaine’s death. Police had been conducting a “thorough investigation” regarding the incident, and did not apprehend Mobley until five months after the incident had occurred. Upon Mobley’s arrest, she was charged with manslaughter and felony assault. She is being held on a $100,000 bail in Manhattan Criminal Court.
