Lawyer condemns search showing Marijuana was found in Botham Jean's Apartment

Family Of Black Man Killed By White Dallas Officer Wants Her To ‘Come Clean’ Search Of Botham Jean's Apartment Ignites Outrage Over Victim’s ‘Character Assassination’
Jeannette Daniel | 14 September, 2018, 17:08

The service for 26-year-old Botham Jean will start at noon Thursday, Sept. 13, at a church in suburban Dallas following a public viewing.

But then around 5 p.m., the family's lawyers were alerted to some apparent breaking news in the investigation into Jean's death.

"DEVELOPING", read a tweet from the local Dallas Fox affiliate.

After the affidavit was released, Fox 4 News published a story about the search of Jean's home.

The news and the tweet, which received criticism online, had nothing to do with why Jean was killed the night of September 6.

The news of Guyger's arrest broke on the evening of September 9, 2018 after two days of confusion about whether Guyger, 30, would face charges in the freaky shooting death of Botham Shem Jean, a Saint Lucian man who moved to America to attend a Christian college and later got a job in risk assessment for a prominent company in Dallas.

"[Jean] was not only never convicted of a crime, he was never even accused of a crime, never arrested", Merritt told The Washington Post. The city of Dallas should take action.

Jean was at home Friday night when the officer mistook his apartment for hers, went inside and killed him, officials said.

Additionally, several of Jean's neighbors doubted Guyger's claim that she mistook Jean's apartment for her own because Jean had bright red doormat, while Guyger did not. "She claimed that she went into a place she thought was her apartment".

The newspaper reported that a spokesman for the Anti-Defamation League said, after looking at the hand signals, that he did not "think there is any white supremacist intention here".

"It's not surprising but it's telling. And instead of investigating the homicide - instead of going into her apartment and seeing what they can find, instead of collecting evidence relevant for the homicide investigation - they went out specifically looking for ways to tarnish the image of this young man". "There could only be one goal for that".

"They immediately began to smear him", Merritt told The Associated Press. "That is exactly their specific intent".

It is not clear what, if any, search warrants have been executed on Guyger's property.

Dallas police executed the search warrant before turning over the case to the Texas Rangers to handle from here forward.

Several busloads of students and former classmates of Jean from Harding University, a Christian liberal arts college in Searcy, Arkansas, where Jean graduated in 2016, also attended the service. In one report on Cleveland.com, the media outlet dug up Rice's father's past convictions for abusing women and his mother's two arrests dating from 2001. Guyger remained at the scene and told the responding officers and 911 operator that she thought she was at her apartment when she shot Jean, according to the affidavit.

According to Dallas Morning News Journalist Tommy Noel, Dallas police officers shot at protesters with a paintball gun.
