Missing Child Found Safe in Corsicana – After Double Homicide

Mansa Igbokwe (Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office)

Mansa Igbokwe, 3 month old boy, was returned to his family today after Corsicana Police were dispatched to a Corsicana hotel, just before midnight on Wednesday.

Obinna Dwayne Igbokwe, 41, fled the Spring, Texas area earlier on Wednesday after a custodial argument went bad with wife and mother-in-law. The 3 month old has been reunited with his family.

According to the Corsicana Police Department, a male dropped off the child in a car seat at a local
hotel and said he would be right back, but never returned. Since the male did not return, CPD was contacted and learned the male left in a white passenger car, which they believed to be Igbokwe. Additional alerts were sent out to local Ellis and Navarro County law enforcement agencies alerting them that Igbokwe was in the area.

An hour later, Ennis Police officers located the white Honda Igbokwe was driving and attempted to stop the vehicle. After a short pursuit, the Honda stopped in a parking lot where officers observed and heard a single gunshot come from the interior of the Honda. Law enforcement officers began life-saving measures and summoned medical personnel. Due to the severity of the gun shot injury, Igbokwe ultimately succumbed to his wounds at a Dallas Hospital at about 5:20 am. Mansa Igbokwe is safe and unharmed and has been reunited with his family.

A press release was issued on Thursday afternoon by Montgomery County officials stating, ‘Our hearts are with the family affected by this tragic and horrific crime and we are working with the victims to ensure they receive support and assistance. This investigation is being completed across multiple jurisdictions and involves the Corsicana Police Department, Ennis Police Department, Ellis County Sheriff’s Office, and the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office.’
