U.S. recoils from 'cop killing' in Dallas of Botham Jean

U.S. recoils from 'cop killing' in Dallas of Botham Jean

Her argument was that she thought she was entering her own apartment and mistook Guyger for a burglar.

Meanwhile, the search warrant for Jean's apartment - filed on September 7, two days before Guyger was interviewed by Texas Rangers - tells an ominously different story.

Allison Jean, the mother of 26-year-old Botham Jean, said Friday that her son's name was smeared by reports that police found 10.4 grams of marijuana in his apartment.

Sammie Berry, an elder and pulpit minister at Jean's church, said the family can not rest until justice is served and Guyger is punished "to the fullest extent of the law".

Before the search warrant become public, lawyers representing the Jean family disputed the claim that Jean's apartment door would have been open, as he was an accountant, who was meticulous in his work and life.

Guyger is charged with manslaughter and is on administrative leave as the investigation continues. She then drew her service firearm, "gave verbal commands that were ignored by [Jean]", and fired two shots. "To have my son smeared in such a way I think shows that there are persons who are really nasty, who are really dirty, and are going to cover up for the devil, Amber Guyger".

Hundreds of friends and family filled a Texas church Thursday to celebrate Jean's life and condemn the actions that "snatched" him in his prime.

Falconer said Guyger should have been better trained to de-escalate any conflict with Jean once the two saw each other, and to determine quickly that she was in the wrong apartment.

It was unclear if police also searched Guyger's apartment.

"It had a specific goal in mind", Merritt said.

Lee Merritt, an attorney for Jean's family, says that the search "highlights just sort of the nefarious nature of their investigation".

Laurence Miller, a police psychologist in Boca Raton, Florida, said that based on the current information available, Guyger appears to have "basically followed the procedure for handling a potential deadly force encounter".

Guyger, who was very quick to use her gun in a situation that most definitely did not call for it, often jokes flippantly online about murder and having a quick trigger finger. They include whether Guyger was under the influence of alcohol or drugs, her level of fatigue, any history of emotional or medical problems, or any history she may have had with Jean, though initial reports suggested the two did not know each other.

"I'm confident this district attorney's office is taking this case seriously", he said.
