Speaking to Punch News, his father, Prince Yemi Emiko said, “From reports, it happened last Monday. His girlfriend, Dauphine, called on Tuesday to say that Teejay went out and didn’t come back and it is most unusual because he always comes back home every day. So, she called the Houston Police Department and made a report.

“The next day, Wednesday, the police called her back, that they had found the body inside his car. So, the police are still investigating.

“I spoke to the detective yesterday (Friday) and also with the coroner’s office and he said they are still poring over materials, CCTV footage; you know the US have CCTV all over, so they are still analysing the footage of the recordings.”

The family are awaiting an autopsy report from the US police to determine the true cause of his 23-year-old prince, his father said.

“Maybe early next week, we’ll begin to have a clearer picture of what happened. The body is still with the police in their morgue, they are not releasing it until they have accomplished some level of investigation; the mother has been crying, everyone is devastated."
