New Search Warrant Shows Investigators to Analyze Gunshot Residue, Doors in Botham Jean's Murder Case

New search warrants returned Friday show that law enforcement authorities have focused part of their attention on the locks to the doors of both Botham Jean and the Dallas police officer who shot him, Amber Guyger.

Investigators with Dallas County released the document about 24 hours after a Dallas Police Department search affidavit publicly detailed property seized from the apartment of Botham Jean, the 26-year-old man fatally shot by Dallas officer Amber Guyger.

The searches, conducted by the Texas Rangers on Tuesday and Wednesday, also concentrated on the contents of surveillance cameras placed throughout the apartment complex, presumably to track the movements of Guyger, and access logs to the South Side Flats apartment complex.

Investigators requested the removal of both doors and an analysis of electronic door locks for each entryway, as well as other electronic locks around the community.

In addition, the returns say, photographs and additional video were seized, along with “laser measurements of firearm trajectory” and “gunshot residue collection from door frame and kitchen wall” of Jean’s apartment.

The warrant was signed and returned on Friday.
