Update on Adaobi: Man suspected of killing her was her roommate

Found more details about 26 year old Adaobi Michella Obih who was found dead on Tuesday Nov. 19th at an apartment in Columbus, Indiana. The man suspected of killing her, 36 year old Ryan Allen Klug, was her roommate. Adaobi was stabbed multiple times and her throat cut.

From Fox59.com
Police were alerted to Obih’s death after she missed work Monday and Tuesday without notifying anyone. Concerned coworkers contacted her apartment complex to ask about her. Police also contacted the property manager to request a welfare check, according to the arrest affidavit.
A maintenance worked went to check on the woman and said, “It’s not good, there is blood everywhere” after going to Obih’s apartment.
A neighbor said he noticed that the door to Obih’s garage spot was open and had been open for at least 24 hours. Klug, who police described as Obih’s roommate, parked his vehicle there.
The maintenance worker told police there were no signs of forced entry at the apartment and that only two people would’ve had keys: Obih and Klug. The maintenance worker told police he found Obih with a “large amount of blood around her head” and said it appeared clear that she was dead.

Police talked to Obih’s boyfriend, who revealed that he’d texted and called her multiple times but never heard back. The last message he received from her was at 12:17 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 17. When she failed to respond, he went to her apartment, saw her car in the parking lot and knocked on the door. Obih didn’t answer.

A neighbor who lives in the apartment below Obih’s said it sounded like someone was moving furniture during Sunday afternoon. “It went on for more than three minutes,” the neighbor said, adding that it happened shortly before tornado warnings went off for Sunday’s storms.

Police said Klug had texted a pastor asking him to call. When the pastor did so, Klug answered and said he couldn’t talk at the time.

Further investigation found that Obih had been stabbed multiple times and her throat cut. A blood trail went from the woman’s bedroom to Klug’s, and police said it appeared “the assailant attempted to clean up in the bathroom area belonging to Mr. Klug.” They also found a bloody towel in Klug’s sink. Police located a plastic bag containing a bloody sock and other clothes stained with blood, including blue jeans, boxers and a shirt. Police said the “amount of blood on these items was significant.”

Police found a trail of small blood drops leading from the apartment to the garage where Klug parked his vehicle. His 2008 silver Subaru Legacy was not parked in the garage.

Klug works for the Indiana Department of Transportation, and police contacted his supervisor, who told them Klug’s behavior had been “off” lately. He sent a text message Sunday saying, “sick tomorrow, then vacation next two weeks.” His supervisor said the message was out of character and also violated the department’s vacation time policy. Klug did not return texts or phone calls, his supervisor said. He didn’t show up at work Monday or Tuesday.

Klug’s stepmother and father said they hadn’t heard from him for several days.

His brother told police he’d spoken with Klug about two weeks ago. Klug wanted to get back with a girl he’d dated. The relationship ended about a year ago. His brother told Klug to call her; he said Klug discovered she was dating someone else and told him, “I’m losing control.”

May her soul rest in peace, but my question here is why in the world would she be living with another man as a room mate when she has a boyfriend? It is dangerous to have a white man as a room mate, and would not recommend it to anyone. So so sad, I hope he gets caught, and given a death sentence becuase this is just a horrible way for someone like this lady to die.

I have been thinking about getting a roommate to reduce my living expenses but the truth is this sort of situation attests to why I'm yet to actually get a roomy. People.are.crazy!!! People are on the edge of a mental breakdown and I don't want to become a statistic all because of someone's mental state or anger at the world.

So many questions. What african girl rooms with a WHITE MAN, And what african man dating an african girl allows or see to this. One bedroom Apartments in indiana must be very expensive. This is why I have never and will never have a roomate, just cos of some mere $250 savings, I would rather go hungry and pay my $700 per month here in my gated community apartment in atlanta, besides I have ocd and a neat freak, I cant live with anyone except my future neat husband

Omg! This is super sad. As in white folks r crazy as hell.. I used to room with one n boy was that the craziest 1 yr of my life.. a point came when I completely stop sleeping in the house.. I was so afraid. Dis peeps kill for no reason.. unlike blk folks dat kill for a reason probably drug related or money related.. Ada RIP. You didn't deserve this kinda death..

Uhhmm in response to your question, people share apartments if they cannot afford to pay the rent alone. It is not sharing a room, but different rooms with a common living/lounge area. Unlike Nigeria where u live in your parents house until you're 35-40yrs, people here work for a living and do not depend on parents or relatives to take care of them...

It is still hard to believe. She works with my husband. The first time i met her was at her apt when she hosted her friend's bridal shower and she was full of life.Then she organized a surprise baby shower for me. She was a very nice and outspoken person.My husband still can't get over her death,he watches the video of the baby shower every night still in disbelieve that she's gone. May soul rest in peace and may God give her parents the fortitude to bear this loss. It's not easy living in white neighborhood, some r nice while some r just racist. May God protect us in this community and may we never witness such again.

I agree. Something seems a bit off. Adaobi was a student so im surprised she didn't opt to live with other students/her age mates or even her boyfriend. She's just a few years older than me and I could NEVER live with an older man...a white man at that! If you are a white man above 30 in America and you still can't afford to live on your own then YOU clearly have problems. Afterall, the system is designed to help then succeed at all costs smh. They have the most "privilege" as social rhetoric would say...

RIP Ada :( such a pretty lady with a bright future, gone just like that. Sigh

Prince Jobless, I've had white roommates. It is not uncommon when you live in a country where the majority of people is white. And All of my roommates were males. They are nicer, more respectful and less catty than their female counterpart. Indiana is as white country as it gets. Not many black folks there for you to be seeking for Africans... and African sometimes lose their minds too.
She was a student for goodness sake that means she needed to save as much as she could. A lot of Africans studying here are on F1 Status and unless you have wealthy parents, that is anywhere from $30k to $80K in average invested in just tuition not even talking about living costs. So yes maybe she needed the extra savings.
So all these people talking about "what was she doing with a white roommate" Most of you probably live in europe or canada where you get help from school or government. In the US you get Zlitch and most students have to do what they can to save something.

RIP Adaobi.

Hey Omotayo, good u asked. In Yanky here when we say 'roommates' , it is a colloquial term for saying 'the person I share an apartment with and not necessarily a roommate'. Thus the Nigerian meaning is not the same as the Yanky meaning but Linda my Ibo sister erred by not clarifying that.. But we learn everyday or prob. She did not know

From what we all know now, the boyfriend of this lady is partly responsible for the death of this lady.

HOW ON EARTH WOULD YOU ALLOWED YOUR OWN WOMAN TO HAVE A MAN( A WHITE DUDE FOR THAT MATTER) AS A ROOM MATE.

WE ALL KNOW THAT MOST WHITE DUDES ARE VOLCANOES WAITING TO ERUPT. MOST OF THEM ARE FREAKS AND THEY ARE SERIOUSLY SICK MENTALLY.

Even if he was not a white man, he is still a man.
Why allowed a MAN as a room mate to a woman you claim you love.
NOW THIS LADY WAS KILLED AS IF SHE WAS A COMMON FOWL. This is so painful.
God, one can't even start to imagine how death would have been for this lady.

As a boyfriend, you are NOT only supposed to be eating pussy but to be a PROTECTOR and a good ADVISER ALL THE TIME. YOU SHOULD HAVE PUT YOUR FOOT DOWN AGAINST YOUR WOMAN HAVING A MAN AS A ROOM MATE. If she Refused, you should have alerted her parents in Nigeria.

If you are the boyfriend and you are reading this blog, I want you to know that YOU FAILED MISERABLY AS A BOYFRIEND.

Not only did you failed this lady, you failed the members of her family too. You can shed all the crocodile tears all you want, BUT you were partly responsible for her death.
I wish your next girlfriend good luck.

What eva,sharing an apartment with maybe a strange dude is not ideal.it can't happn here in Niaja,even her boyfriend wuldnt let her.Too sad that her life was terminated in a such manner.I trust their cops coz soon the stupid man will be caught.

Anonymous said...

Its either. You can be roomy's with your bf or gf bc it is affordable. Having someone to split rent and bills with can be helpful so you're not inundated with the amount of bills you have to pay every month. You can't run to your uncles or in laws to borrow money easily, so its best to have a roommate. She may have thought having a male roommate is safe, especially with rape being so rampant. Ill do that 10x over than to be raped by some jerk bc im a woman and I live alone.

No need for racist comments. There are good white men too. This one just have some screws loose in the head.
Why wont she live with another man when she has a boyfriend? Maybe she doesnt want to get serious wiyh her boyfriend yet and it is safe to have a male roommate bc of the neighborhood or maybe it is cheaper to have a roommate.

Its obvious you still live in a bush or you're very rich. It is cheaper to have a roommate. Someone to split the monthly bills with. If your apt cost $1200/mth, thats $600 per individual. This does not include electricity, water, food and other necesities. Also, if she lives in a bad neighborhood, yes, there are bad neighborhood in the USA, and the houses or apartments there run cheap, she may have thought it best to have a amale roommate. That way, she is not targeted by some guys or make her a rape victim.

Let me educate u: in this part of the world, western world, pple share flats with other pple. That is 3 pple can be living together in a 3-bedroom apartment, each will have his/her own room but they share common places like kitchen, living room, laundry and sometimes washrooms. Though they are referred to as Roommates, they are more like flatmates..
And yes, cus u live in a predominantly Caucasian Country, chances are u will have one or more as flatmates

Guess you've never heard of "craigslist", apartmentsdotcom, maybe even posters at apartment complex with people looking for roommates. Not to say that was the case with this young poor lady, but there are tons of ways for people of different background to meet. Nothing is wrong with the picture. What the question really is and im sure the detective is asking is, if these two were ever in a relationship? Killings such as these are typically "crimes of passion", when you stab someone and then excessively go out of your way to mutilate or do an over kill, such as slitting the throat. Either way, its a sad situation and a waste of such great talent.

Breaking in? Into an apartment she shares with someone? Sense?! No!

Anonymous said...

Flatmates, roommates, cuddle buddies or not, I STILL don't get why she was sharing an apt with this older man?? I've lived in America all my life so I understand the financial burden associated with the cost of living. However, weren't there classmates, family friends, or even her bf that she could live with?? This guy isn't her age mate so I don't understand how this arrangement even initiated. It's really such a sad story. RIP to this beautiful girl.

Lord have mercy, so may ignorant people on this blog. It is quite common to have a male roommate in the US especially if you are a student. All the people saying they live abroad and have never heard of it yada yada did not go through the college experience. And you Linda, you do the young girl and her family a huge disservice by not explaining things better for your ignoramus readers

I find it weird when some idiots are commenting that why she is living with a man when she has a bf...so it's okay to do if she didn't? What's really d big deal?..from the report you can read that they were not sharing d same bathroom..
White or black...man or woman...kini big deal? It doesn't mean a devil comes in white male..

My heart goes out to her..Rip

She was a college friend to my bestie, i remember having a conversation with her on facebook last month. So painful this cruel act happened to her. RIP ADAOBI..... GOD keep us. gotta be conscious with my environment

That's the advantage of watching all these crime channels/programs (I killed my BFF, nightmare next door etc). It keeps you alert! You would possess the right amount of paranoia that won't let you rent out ur apartment to a man (white or black). At least with a woman u can put up a fight or smn, but how do u wanna struggle with a man ten years older than you if it comes to it, of course u would be overpowered.
RIP Ada...Chidinma is now an only child.

EVERYONE THAT HAS BLASPHEMED AND INSULTED ADAOBI OR HER FRIENDS, I PRAY FOR FORGIVENESS FOR YOUR COMMENTS. THIS IS ONE INDIVIDUALS FAULT, RYAN KLUG, not her boyfriend, or herself, or a racism thing, or the good actions of a kind hearted Ada trying to save costs.

I think this is fishy.It might not be klug that killed her. It might be some one neutral. His boss said he sent a txt that was fishy.And he called his pastor that he can't talk. I won't be surprised if the guy is dead .If the same person that killed the girl killed him.

Wwell God bless those who have sounded a note of caution and warning. I am very matured and AGED! single female and I watch my back incessantly just this night I ran off from a car full of fruit picking human cockroaches known as emmm gringos they saw me filling up at gas station and hollered out in passing while jollyfering me too I waved and jeered mockingly and gave meself a wonderful hiss when done. Why did they U turn back when I was already driving off? Anyway I ja'd. My point is heed the words of caution above as someone rightly said we are highly educated generally well presented and this HIGHLY disturbs the lowly peasants and even intellectual comrades you may come across. They can like to hate your guts while giving you the chin ups.

They absolutely abhor niggers with more sense money wealth class than them, biko play your cards close to chest always. Even black guys have threatened killing me in different ways and explained how they will escape. The devil is roaming ferociously pls be very prayerful and spiritually vigilant my ex I was content to marry began discussing taking me to hell, sacrifice and coming to a dark side of life that God does not exist and this is NOT a Nigerian.

As I dey single kampe like 1 dollar bill my happiness is almost unrivalled as I am pained when I hear my female coworkers getting emotional abuse in their homes and another just escaped a shooting where two have previously died in her dutypost. COVER YOURSELVES WITH THE BLOOD OF JESUS. Its not only from your village idols have to be satisfied it is worldwide the unpure are looking for the ripe to annihilate and I am serious as cancer.

At anon 4.03 did you just say 'one'? Pls come off it. They kill ppl here for no apparent reason like fish den dey end up killing demselves and you sit there and say one. It happens every day here in America. In school o, at the mall, in theatres everywhere and every time

Shut the hell up. His right.She had no buisness living with that guy.

And who said the deceased chose to live with an older white man? Dont forget that landlords often bring in their own tenants and current residents of an apartment have little or no say over who moves in? the landlord will tell you that if you object to a man staying with you, then you should provide him with another tenant who will come and rent the room. its all abt the money for them.This may have been the case for Ada. Rest in peace precious girl!

The truth is nigeria ladies always date d wrong men wen dey found dem self in foreign land,they fail to understand dat d game of love is played by environmental influence in d sense dat what is obtainable in 9ja is not what is obtainable in Columbus.she played d game wrongly,lesson to oda 9ja ladies in foreign land. RIP

And there goes another myopic dumb comment. It is now clear that u r not in that Atlanta #NaWash. If not you'd know how pple live hia in d States. Olodo claiming abroad

@10:37, thank you. Breaking in? Yeah, he can break in If he's trying to go to jail or get shot in the face with an AK. If she was living there by herself, understandable, but even that becomes risky as it makes him a bigger suspect. It could be termed as forced entry and he committed the murder. So, the best thing was what was done. Call the cops and let the apartment owners open the door. No contaminating of the crime scene and the homicide is solved painlessly.

My take is that he'll probably kill himself so he won't be taken alive. "Innocent until proven guilty". If someone else capped the pair, then, thats on another level completely, like maybe he is involved with the wrong group of people.

Dear Linda

I appreciate your interest in this case. Thank you for the publicity. However I would like to clear the air. Adaobi Michaella Obih was the greatest soul I ever knew. She wasn't a student. She was a full time test engineer at Cummins Inc. She only began to pursue her Ph.d of recent. Ada leased the apartment on her own and Klug was her tenant who paid rent to her. This is an unfortunate incident as Ada interviewed a large number of people before deciding to lease a room to Klug. A responsible person of age who has a constant job and can foot his bills. I kindly indulge that you consult to get facts before releasing information. No one contacted her family or got approval before this story was released however, I appreciate you trying to inform the public about this gruesome incident.

Are you serious? Did you really just typed this out? She lives in Indiana not your bush village. No landlord will force another tenant on you in the USA. You sign a contract when you move into an apartment. If someone tries to force a tenant into your apartment without your OK, tell him to meet you in court and he can battle it out with the judge while he pays you for harassment and breach of contract. You must have missed the part where it said she lives in the US.
