September 9, 2011 (HOMEWOOD, Ill.) --
A Homewood woman died Thursday after apparently injecting heated beef fat into her face at her south suburan home.
Janet Hardt, 63 of 1036 W. 186th St. in Homewood, was pronounced dead at 6:25 p.m. at Advocate South Suburban Hospital in Hazel Crest, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's office.
A source said shortly before Hardt died she injected heated beef fat into her face around her mouth and chin, which she had done before on several occassions.
Hardt went to the hospital after complaining that her face became singed and felt like it was burning, according to the source.
She has previously undergone multiple facial surgeries, the source said.
An autopsy to determine the cause and manner of her death is scheduled for later Friday, according to the medical examiner's office.
A message left with Homewood Police was not immediately returned Friday morning.
