Florida man dead

Watch Video Footage: Florida man dead, model lover found soaked in blood

Florida police say a 27-year-old Miami man died of a knife wound to the chest Sunday — as video shows his Instagram model girlfriend was spotted soaked in blood, wearing handcuffs and being questioned by investigators.

But so far, there have been no charges.

Christian Tobechukwu Obumseli suffered “an apparent knife wound” in a domestic violence incident before first responders rushed him 2.5 miles away to the Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital, Miami police Florida man deadsaid in a statement. He was pronounced dead at the hospital.

A lawyer for his girlfriend, Courtney Clenney, said she was defending herself.

Video showing the aftermath of the altercation obtained by TMZ appears to show a distraught, blood-covered woman in handcuffs sitting on a balcony, speaking with police. The front of her white sweatpants is stained red, as are her arms, chest, stomach and forehead.

 

Authorities said they had interviewed a woman who was involved in “a physical altercation” with Obumseli and that homicide detectives were investigating. A law enforcement source told Fox News Digital that Clenney was taken to a hospital under the Baker Act for a mental evaluation.

“The Clenney family is devastated by the events leading up to the death of Christian and send their deepest sympathies to his family, friends, and loved ones,” said Frank Prieto, Clenney’s attorney. “Clearly, none of this was intended and Courtney is struggling mentally with the aftermath of what occurred that evening.”

The Miami-based WPLG 10 reported Friday that friends of the couple described “a very rocky relationship” — although the sources gave conflicting stories about who might have been the aggressor.
