Wannabe porn star Karissa Rajpaul posted on social media videos of her getting butt implants in the Los Angeles area, according to NBC Los Angeles. After one of the surgeries, she died.

The surgeries were performed at a home by a mother and daughter, who now face charges, according to ABC 7. Libby Adame and Alicia Gomez were both charged with murder in connection to the case.

Investigators say the women injected the wannabe star with a substance mixed with other chemicals that are not traditionally used in medical procedures, according to ABC 7.

Rajpaul came to Los Angeles from South Africa hoping to land a career in adult films.

Police say there may be more victims who received surgery from Gomez and Adame. Police are asking those victims, or their families, to speak to officers.
