Police Report on Obama Chef’s Drowning Omits Name of 911 Caller, Fuels Speculation

The couple's daughters, Malia and Sasha, were spotted flying out of Martha's Vineyard on Tuesday, the day after Campbell's body was recovered...

(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) The investigation into the drowning of the Obama family’s private chef while paddleboarding took a strange turn when the Martha’s Vineyard police report omitted the name of a second paddleboarder, Becker News reported.

Tafari Campbell, 45,  who had worked for the Obamas during and after their time in the White House, for died Sunday in the Edgartown Great Pond, which backs up to the Obama mansion.

But the shifting narrative and glaring gaps in the official reports have fueled rampant speculation about to how closely involved one or more members of the “scandal free” family may be involved, as the investigation awaits key details including a toxicology report.

According to the preliminary police report, Campbell’s unnamed partner desperately attempted to save him “but did not reach him in time.”

However, police suspiciously declined to name the person with whom was paddleboarding.

Making things even stranger, the 911 call log specified the reason for every other call on the night of the incident, but not the reason for the call regarding Campbell’s drowning.

All that is known is that the caller was a woman who was presumably on a boat searching for Campbell at 7:46 p.m., about 30 minutes after he went under.

Campbell’s wife, Sherise, shared an emotional tribute on Instagram but offered no indication that she was the person with him at the time of the tragedy or the one who called police afterward.

“My heart is broken. My life and our family’s life is forever changed. Please pray for me and our families as I deal with the loss of my husband,” she wrote in the comment, which Instagram indicated had been edited.

Local officials denied that the report omissions were part of a nefarious cover-up.

Edgartown police chief Bruce McNamee said that the call logs are automatically generated, so the information could have been left out if the caller called the direct business line rather than the 911 line, the Daily Mail reported.

Reports have shifted as to whether members of the Obama family were at home at the time of the drowning.

Both Barack and Michelle Obama were reportedly in Martha’s Vineyard but were not at home when the incident occurred on Sunday evening, according to TMZ.

However, the couple’s daughters, Malia and Sasha, were spotted flying out of Martha’s Vineyard on Tuesday, the day after Campbell’s body was recovered. It is not known if they were present at the estate at the time.

Campbell’s body was found Monday morning, around 10 a.m. about 100 yards off shore in water only 8 feet deep.

The Massachusetts State Police ruled his death an accident, noting that there were no external injuries apparent on Campbell’s body, though the toxicology report is yet to be released.

The chef served the Obamas for 14 years, first in the White House, then subsequently as their private chef.
