The family of Christian Toby Obumseli is seeking answers after he was stabbed to death inside of his Miami apartment.
According to reports, Miami police responded to a call on Sunday (April 3) about a man being stabbed, when authorities arrived, they found an injured Obumseli. The 27-year-old was transported from the One Parasio luxury high-rise building in the Edgewater neighborhood to the Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital where he died. Obumseli's relatives say he was just one week away from his 28th birthday.
Police have not named a suspect in the case, but did confirm that a woman was detained at the scene and held for an involuntary mental health evaluation.
The family has set up a GoFundMe fundraiser to cover funeral expenses which states: "On April 3, 2022, 27-year-old Christian Toby Obumseli was murdered in Florida a week before his 28th birthday. It is unconscionable to make sense of our new reality. That someone’s selfish act ripped Christian away from this world. It is not enough to say we are shocked and hurting--We are utterly devastated. His murder leaves many unanswered questions and creates a void that can never be fixed or filled. Not even with time."
Police say the Obumseli's death is still under investigation.
