Photos have emerged of Barack Obama with a black eye and bandaged fingers that were taken on the day after the former president’s chef mysteriously died on his Martha’s Vineyard estate.
The Obamas’ long-term personal chef Tafari Campbell went missing on Sunday evening while paddleboarding on a pond at the former first family’s lavish home.
Campbell, a known strong swimmer, apparently drowned in 8ft deep water.
His body was recovered from the water by authorities on Monday.
Later on Monday, Barack and Michelle Obama were spotted unwinding separately at the Vineyard Golf Club and Farm Neck Country Club, respectively, according to photos obtained by Daily Mail.
The photos mysteriously show Barack Obama covered in cuts and bruises.
Dressed in a green polo shirt and white shorts, Barack Obama was photographed on the golf course at the exclusive Vineyard Golf Club.
The former president was sporting bandaged fingers and a black eye, which caused speculation online.
Well, this just got interesting. After it was reported by one of the paramedics that Obama's chef showed signs of blunt-force trauma, a photo emerged of Obama with an injured hand, fingers, and possibly a black eye. 🧐 pic.twitter.com/N3TU6glntI

Michelle, on the other hand, was involved in a high-intensity tennis game with three of her friends at the nearby Farm Neck Country Club.
Martha’s Vineyard law enforcement appears to have left a significant void in the details surrounding the tragic drowning of Obama’s private chef, Tafari Campbell.
The call log of the 911 distress call, received on the night of the accident, conspicuously omits the reason for the call.
TGW reports: Tafari Campbell, 45, met his tragic end while paddle boarding on Great Edgartown Pond, Martha’s Vineyard, on Sunday night.
He was reportedly not alone, but local police have yet to disclose the other person’s identity.
Police confirmed Campbell was visiting Martha’s Vineyard and was employed by the Obamas at the time of his death.
Barack and Michelle Obama were not present at their home but were in town when the incident occurred.
On the night of the incident, the Edgartown Police Department’s logs confirm the receipt of a 911 distress call at precisely 7:46 pm, reporting the 45-year-old struggling to stay afloat on the surface before he drowned.
Oddly, the call log shows the reason for this call as BLANK – an inconsistency, considering that all other calls made that night had their reasons clearly mentioned.
Dispatch calls between Martha’s Vineyard emergency services confirm the presence of a second paddle boarder with Campbell.
According to a statement from the Massachusetts State Police reported by MassLive, the unidentified paddleboarder tried to swim to Campbell but tragically, “did not reach him in time.”
After the failed rescue attempt, the individual managed to swim back to shore and alerted someone who then called 911.
A female made the initial 911 call, who, as of 8:18 pm, was actively searching for Campbell on a boat, per Daily Mail.
Just so you know …
– Barack Obama’s chef died on a pond on his property.
– the official story has changed multiple times.
– they’re hiding the identity of the 2nd paddle-boarder.
– police are leaving blanks in their notes. No information.
– the media isn’t even curious…

Adding to the mystery, the call’s origin was marked as Wilson’s Landing, a popular paddle board launch site roughly two miles from the Obama residence on Turkeyland Cove.
This information contradicts the Massachusetts State Police records, stating that the first call originated from the Obamas’ residence.
