(Newser) – Add this to the list of really awful ways to go: An Illinois woman injected heated beef fat into her face Thursday, and died shortly thereafter. Janet Hardt, 63, had done it several times before, says a source, but after injecting the substance around her mouth and chin this time, WLS-AM reports that her face became singed.
