New Information Emerges in Drowning Death of Obama’s Chef

Shocking new information on the death of Obama’s personal chef Tafari Campbell has emerged.

The information was released on Jesse Watters’ “Primetime” show on Fox News.

“We have new information tonight in the drowning death of Obama’s personal chef Tafari Campbell,” Watters reported. “The Massachusetts State Police responded to our FOIA request and released their report with some redactions.”

“According to the report, Obama was on the scene shortly after Campbell went missing,” he said. “Report also states an unmanned female staffer jumped into the water when Tafari fell off his board, but it was already too late. He disappeared.”

“We also now know that Secret Service has surveillance footage of Campbell from Obama’s compound moments before he entered the water,” he continued.

“So we’re going to see if we can get that and we may have that for you. Again, we’re very, very sorry for Tafari’s family,” he said. “That was a serious, serious tragedy.”

Police records from the Edgarton, MA, Police Department obtainedearlier  under the Massachusetts Public Records Law indicate the Secret Service had reported the disappearance of Tafari Campbell, who served as President Obama’s personal chef, before his dead body was later located near Martha’s Vineyard with the help of sonar technology.

The records, obtained by Judicial Watch, reveal that Campbell’s clothing was found apart from the body, and a life vest was not in use. Several other key details about the drowning incident, which occurred on July 23, 2023, in Martha’s Vineyard, were redacted.

The documents made public also contain a computer-aided dispatch (CAD) incident report dated July 23:

Secret Service Agent [redacted] adv swimmers unable to locate the party at this time. Party last scene [sic] wearing all black, on a paddle board, African American male.

Rev’vd a 911 call from the above noted RP [reporting person] who identified as a Secret Service member. RP is req [requesting] at least an ambulance response, unsure of the exact services needed.

A Secret Service Agent [redacted] noted that swimmers were unable to find the individual at that moment. The missing party was last seen dressed in all black, on a paddleboard, and is an African American male.

A 911 call was received from a reporting person (RP) who identified as a member of the Secret Service. The RP requested an ambulance but was uncertain about the other services required. The RP also indicated that the best point of entry was from a nearby residence and that both a rescue swimmer and a zodiac boat were being dispatched.

No life vest was worn, and while the paddleboard and clothing have been recovered, there was still no contact with the missing individual. At the time, rescue swimmers and a boat remained in the area.

The documents note that at 8:25 p.m., the Oak Bluffs Fire Department deployed a dive team. By 8:36 p.m., both a Coast Guard and a state police helicopter were in the air.

Police Chief Bruce McNamee, who sent the reports, mentioned in his accompanying email that the names of a witness and a Secret Service agent had been redacted as per the request of the Massachusetts State Police.

The base for search operations was set up at Wilson’s Landing, a commonly used boat launch. Dive and search teams from Oak Bluffs, Tisbury, and West Tisbury were involved in the search efforts.

The following day, Sgt. William Bishop stated:

Once on location [Wilson’s Landing] we established a command post. I requested through MSP a search helicopter, and Chief Schaeffer requested a USCG helicopter as well. Search & Dive teams from Edgartown, Oak Bluffs, Tisbury, West Tisbury responded via mutual aid. An extensive search began for several hours. A last known location was established, and Trooper Shaw of MSP also assisted with operations. 

I instructed Officer Guest and Officer Dacey to commence a shoreline search effort starting from the closest house and working outward. Both Officers checked every house with waterfront access in the search area. Unfortunately, the search did not yield and results. 

Both air wings conducted a search until their fuel supply forced a return to base.

At or about 11PM the dive and land search was suspended. Edgartown and Oak Bluffs Fire planned to continue a grid search by boat for the remainder of the night. At first light, dive team operations will continue. During the duration of this incident the entrance to Wilson’s Landing was closed as to give responders room to work.

The next morning the dive team search continued, and a deceased Mr. Campbell was located using sonar. The investigation will now be handled by Massachusetts State Police and The Cape and Islands District Attorney’s Office. No further action. 

“It is concerning that Judicial Watch had to push and push for information on this tragic death, such as the new revelation that the Obama’s Secret Service protection reported Mr. Campbell missing,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton remarked.

There are still questions to be answered about Tafari Campbell’s death. This new information only raises more questions about the circumstances.

This ‘story’ keeps changing, and it’s obvious that Obama’s were not at some friends’ home at the time of this ‘drowing:’ Nice try though, but the Police along with the Secret Service WERE covering up this whole incident. They even floated the idea that this chef “Could NOT swim, but videos shown of HIM swimming like a fish were shown(he may not have been a swimmer in early years but he did take lessons and became Very Efficent at Swimming..
Why did the whole story until ‘Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch’ got the RIGHT info along with some Real Facts NOW come out?

Why would the clothing be found separately from the body? That’s a very suspicious bit of information. Unless he went under the water and disrobed in hopes that he’d be able to surface easier, which, unfortunately, didn’t happen.

Sometimes suicidal people do that before entering the water. Seen that a few times.

Sure, and if you find my chopped up body inside the microwave, don’t believe the suicide note.
