OnlyFans model Courtney Tailor was arrested last weekend on suspicion of murdering her partner Christian Obumseli. TMZ reports this based on images of the arrest.
Tailor stabbed her 27-year-old boyfriend to death in April after a heated argument. At the time, she claimed in a police statement that she acted in self-defense. However, Obumseli’s family did not believe that and assumed that Tailor acted out of anger. After being allowed to await the murder trial in freedom for the past four months, she was arrested last weekend in a rehab facility in Hawaii. It is unknown on the basis of which information the police decided to proceed with the arrest. Shortly after her arrest, images appeared online of an argument that had taken place several months before the murder.
Trigger warning: the following images may be experienced as shocking.
According to Larry Handfield, the lawyer representing Obumseli’s family in the case, the family is happy that Tailor has finally been arrested and they have faith in the justice system again. Handfield also tells TMZ that Tailor faces a life sentence if found guilty.
Tailor’s attorney, Frank Prieto still insists his client is innocent and reacts shocked to her arrest. “I am very shocked by her arrest. Mainly because we have always cooperated with the investigation and indicated that she would voluntarily turn herself in if charged. We look forward to clearing her name in court.”
