Christian “Toby” Obumseli died April 3, 2022, as a result of being stabbed by his girlfriend, Courtney Clenney. Obumseli’s family claims they didn’t learn of his death until a day later, when his mother says she was called and asked if Obumseli wanted to donate his organs.
 
The family says they still don’t have all the details surrounding Obumseli’s death and claim that the detective has been dismissive of their search for answers. They also claim the detective wanted to close the case after 24 hours, saying Obumseli’s death was the result of a domestic dispute.
 

“[The detective] was just very, very cold. He wouldn’t tell us what occurred until, finally, when he called later on Monday evening and he stated that based on Courtney’s reporting, that Courtney had killed him in self-defense, and that there was enough evidence for him to close the case, close the investigation at that particular time,” says Karen Egbuna, Obumseli's cousin.
 
Hear why the family’s lawyer, Larry Handfield, says the detective’s statements are disturbing in the video above.
