Obama Was ‘On the Scene’ When Chef Drowned, New Police Records Show

New records from the Massachusetts State Police have revealed that former President Barack Obama was “on the scene” when his personal chef drowned on his Martha’s Vineyard estate.

The documents were obtained by Washington D.C. watchdog group Judicial Watch.

Judicial Watch announced receiving 40 pages of records from the State Police.

According to the nonprofit, the records, which are heavily redacted, indicate the presence of Barack Obama for a witness interview.

Police reportedly spoke with the ex-POTUS in the death investigation of the Obamas’ personal chef Tafari Campbell.

The records indicate Barack Obama arrived at the emergency response scene via motorcade.

A short time later, a cold, wet woman, who was a witness, arrived.

The next morning, the eyewitness was interviewed in the Obama residence, again with Barack Obama present.

The records also detail the existence of a Secret Service video of Campbell and his paddleboarding companion entering the water, and the Secret Service emergency response in the immediate aftermath of the drowning.

The State Police records show they concluded “no foul play” in Campbell’s “accidental” death.

On Friday night, Fox News host Jesse Watters reported on the new information.

“The Massachusetts State Police responded to our FOIA request and released their report, with some redactions,” Watters said.

“According to the report, Obama was on the scene shortly after Campbell went missing.

“The report also states an unmanned female staffer jumped into the water when Tafari fell off his board.

“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.


“It is concerning that Judicial Watch had to push for several months to find out that Barack Obama was personally involved in the death investigation of his personal chef Tafari Campbell,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement.

In August 2023, Judicial Watch released records it received from the Edgarton, MA, Police Department that show the Secret Service reported Obama’s Personal Chef Tafari Campbell missing and that the body was found using sonar.

The records also detail that clothing was found separate from the body and that he was not wearing a life vest.
