Padge Gordon, the transgender woman charged with murder after injecting a fatal does of silicon to enhance the physique of dancer Claudia Seye Aderotimi, says she’s ‘remorsefull’ in a letter to the DA but contends her actions were ‘noble’.
“The Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office would like to promote [the] thought that it was greed, recklessness and malice that fueled my conduct,” she wrote.
“However, 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.”
Aderotimi’s friend testified Gordon sealed the puncture wounds caused by the needles with super glue and left Aderotimi in the motel room to die after after she complained she couldn’t breath.
Gordon turned down a plea bargain by Williams which would have landed her behind bars for 15 to 30 years. The maximum she can receive for third degree is 40 years. Gordon is seeking a conviction of involuntary manslaughter for which she could be out in as little as 2 1/2 years in her letter to the DA saying:
This woman eventualy died a horrific death.

Gordon’s letter continues…
“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.
Gorden was charged with murder while in custody for aggravated assault after she gravely injured a woman with industrial grade silicone injections earlier in 2012.
At the time of Windslowe’s 2012 arrest, Williams had called her arrogant and greedy.
“Her conduct cost one young woman her life and placed countless others in danger,” he said. “The defendant put her own greed above the public’s health and safety, and instead of being remorseful she bragged about prospective clients.”
Windslowe’s murder trial is scheduled for Feb. 17, 2015
