From Staff Reports

Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Presse Release: On June 2, at about 12 a.m., detectives with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office were contacted by the Corsicana Police Department and advised they had Mansa Igbokwe in their care. 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, the Corsicana Police Department 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.  

At about 1:05 a.m., Ennis Police Department 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, but due to the severity of the injury Igbokwe 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. 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.
