Police tape seals off a house in Chester after a healthcare professional working at the Countess of Chester Hospital was arrested on suspicion of murdering eight babies and attempting to kill six others

Dallas PD obtained a search warrant the day Jean was shot and killed, but not to aid in the investigation - he believes their goal was to smear and incriminate Botham, even though he did absolutely nothing wrong. They re-edited the story and changed the headline from featuring breaking news about marijuana in the apartment to one that now says "Lawyers disgusted by release of search warrant showing marijuana found in Botham Jean's apartment".

Now, that seed has been shattered...a different officer...a different unarmed victim. this one shot in the peace and quiet of his own home by an off-duty officer who thought that home was hers.

His family said they were "assassinating his character".

But experts on police training and psychologists are split on the credibility of Officer Amber Guyger's story.

Jean was killed September 6 at the South Side Flats apartment complex when Guyger mistook his apartment for her own and shot him. She alleges the door was open and she saw a "large silhouette" inside, and claims after her verbal commands were ignored. she shot Jean in the torso.

Officer Amber Guyger is charged with manslaughter in the shooting and is free on bond.

Some experts who aren't connected to the case say Guyger should have recognized what was really going on and stopped short of using deadly force. "In this situation, the officer allowed her fear to influence her decision-making and it cost an innocent man his life".

Search warrants executed by investigators with the Dallas County District Attorney's Office are seeking data from the door locks of a police officer and the man she is accused of fatally wounding, according to published reports.

She called 911 and, when asked where she was, returned to the front door to see she was in the wrong unit, according to the affidavit.

Merritt said the witnesses are sisters who live at the apartment complex.

Less discussed has been the fact that the search warrant contradicts Guyger's other statements - and the official account described in her arrest affidavit. 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.

Merritt, an attorney for the Jean family, said the Dallas Police Department tainted the investigation before handing it off to the Texas Rangers. "I need to go protect myself, '" Whalen said.
