Jeff Obumseli, the elder brother of Christian Toby Obumseli; is begging the public to join his family in seeking justice for his brother who was murdered by a Courtney Tailor Clenney.
Jeff said his family strongly disagrees with his late brother’s tweets demeaning black women. He called the tweets “repulsive”.
He added that his brother’s killer, Courtney Tailor Clenney, is walking free; having drinks at the bar, and living her normal life while his family mourns the loss of his brother.
He further said it’s been a week since his brother was killed and the authorities have made no move to arrest Courtney; instead, they concluded that his brother’s murder was “not a crime of violence” and Courtney was granted bail.
Friends of the late Toby Obumseli tried to organize a protest but black women refused to join because of the things Christian said about them before his death. His brother, Jeff, is now apologizing on his brother’s behalf while begging the public to join the fight for justice.
Jeff Obumseli apologizes and begs the public to fight for justice.
His statement reads: “As a family, we strongly disagree with the ignorant and repulsive tweets from my then-high school-aged brother that has recently surfaced. However, the tweets do not diminish our demand for a thorough investigation into Toby’s murder or negate the necessity for justice.”

He added that “It’s been a week since my brother was brutally and senselessly killed. Taylor Clenney’s callous actions have not been met with an ounce of remorse. We’ve seen videos of Courtney kissing her dogs while covered in what we believe to be my brother’s blood and casually getting drinks at a hotel bar days later while my brother lays in the morgue.”
“The bottom line is inextricably clear: Courtney is being treated differently because of her privilege as a wealthy white woman. Within 24 hours following Toby’s death, the detective on the case prematurely concluded this was not a crime of violence. But the information provided is deficient and the lack of transparency strongly suggests foul play is involved”. He said
Courtney acknowledges that Toby did not have a weapon. She has no injuries to support her story of imminent danger. In addition, Courtney hasn’t yet explained exactly what happened leading up to Toby’s murder. We have every reason to believe that his death was the result of unwarranted and unprovoked violence. We desire to see that justice is served.
“As a family, you may not agree with every action or statement made, but it is my duty to zealously fight for my brother. No family should have to go through what we are experiencing. We have a long legal battle ahead of us to ensure justice is served. I need your support. My family needs your support. We cannot do this without community.” Jeff ended the statement with “God bless you all.”
