Nigerian Psychiatrist Murdered In Her Home By A Patient

Dr Caroline Ekong, 55, was murdered last week Wednesday in Delaware by a former patient Christopher Frick.

Police said Frick went to Ekong's home with the intent to kill. He parked his car in a parking lot near the Ekong's home, broke into the house shortly before 4 a.m. and confronted her. Ekong was stabbed numerous times, according to investigators.

Emails, journal entries and letters found at Frick's parents' home and another University of Delaware residence indicated Frick was "obsessed" with Ekong and had plotted her death for at least a year because she had ordered him to be placed in a mental institution three years earlier.

In 2014, Flick wrote about his experience in a letter to The News Journal, saying: 'The staff framed me as suicidal, as well as everyone else I saw the night I was "evaluated".

He also posted an online review of the facility, which ends with: 'The person who imprisoned me was Caroline Ekong, whose ego is so large that she would never be able to admit doing something wrong.'

After murdering Ekong last week, 55, Frick drove to his parents' house and called police to confess to his crime - around the same time the psychologist's daughter discovered her mother's body.

Police charged Frick with first-degree murder, first-degree burglary, possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony, home invasion and possession of burglary tools. He is being held without bail.

Authorities said Frick called 911 about 30 minutes after Ekong’s body was discovered by her daughter at 4 a.m. Wednesday inside the doctor's two-story home on Withers Way in the Sanford Ridge neighborhood.

Police said Ekong had no contact with Frick for three years and had no reason to believe he was plotting to kill her.


Poor Woman! I just hope the case does not get swept under the carpet if he claims "mental incompetence."
