DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – A search warrant reveals what Dallas Police investigators took from Botham Jean’s apartment the night he was shot and killed by off-duty Dallas Police Officer Amber Guyger when she mistook his apartment for hers on September 6.
The warrant does not indicate who owned which items.
The list includes fired cartridge casings, a laptop, a black backpack with police equipment and paperwork, a little more than ten grams of marijuana, a metal marijuana grinder, two radio frequency ID keys and two used packages of medical aid.
Guyger is charged with manslaughter and out of jail on a $300,000 bond, but Dallas County District Attorney Faith Johnson is taking the case to a grand jury.
Lee Merritt, the North Texas attorney who is representing Jean’s family, said the search warrant showed investigators were immediately looking for drug paraphernalia.
In his words, “They immediately began looking to smear him.”
Hundreds of people filed in to the service honoring the 26-year-old’s life and legacy.
Jean’s funeral was held at the Greenville Avenue Church of Christ in Richardson to accommodate the large crowd.
