In a bizarre and tragic turn of events, a woman has been charged with murder and multiple other offenses after a woman who underwent a cosmetic procedure to enhance her buttocks in a hotel room died.
According to reports, the victim, a 34-year-old woman named Kristyna Martelli, was known as the “human blow-up doll” due to her many cosmetic surgeries. The suspect, 29-year-old Tijuana resident Claudia Ochoa Felix, was known as the “Mexican Kim Kardashian” and had reportedly undergone similar surgeries.
Martelli had traveled to Mexico to undergo a buttock enhancement procedure, which was performed in a hotel room by Felix. However, the procedure went wrong, and Martelli died soon after.
Felix has been charged with murder, as well as practicing medicine without a license and causing bodily harm. She is also accused of advertising cosmetic surgery services on social media without a license.
The case highlights the dangers of unlicensed and unregulated cosmetic surgery, which can be widespread in some parts of the world, particularly in countries where the procedures are cheaper than in the United States.
The case is also a stark reminder that even seemingly routine cosmetic procedures can be dangerous and potentially deadly. Anyone considering cosmetic surgery should do extensive research on the surgeon and the facility where the procedure will take place, and only undergo procedures from licensed and reputable professionals.
As for Felix, she remains in custody awaiting trial. It is unknown if she has retained legal representation at this time.
