Family: Warrant is part of smear campaign against slain Dallas man

She has been booked on a preliminary charge of manslaughter and is free on bond. "Search warrant: Marijuana found in Botham Jean's apartment after deadly shooting".

He also said his nephew told him he would like to enter politics one day, maybe even becoming prime minister of his home country of St. Lucia. "Upon being asked where she was located by emergency dispatchers, Guyger returned to the front door to observe the address and discovered she was at the wrong apartment", the document states.

"It was an unnecessary, tactless, black eye and quite frankly the Dallas Police Department should have sealed those warrants", Merritt said. Guyger has since been placed on administrative leave and charged with manslaughter; Jean died at a local hospital.

The station interviewed an attorney not connected to the case, who said, "I'm not saying Mr. Jean is a bad guy because he had some marijuana in his apartment, but it could help add some explanation to this insane case". Said they never called her back.

David Menschel, an Oregon-based criminal defense attorney and activist, called the release of the search warrant "propaganda".

Jean was fatally shot last week by off-duty officer Amber Guyger. She fired twice, hitting Jean once in the chest.

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

More than 1,500 people gather at Greenville Avenue Church of Christ to remember the life of Botham Jean.

Sarri tips Hazard for EPL Golden Boot
The 27-year-old has scored 94 goals since moving to Stamford Bridge in 2012, yet has never bagged 20 or more in a season. He is averaging 4.1 shots per 90 minutes played, an unprecedented rate within the wider context of his career.

"(Jean) was not only never convicted of a crime, he was never even accused of a crime, never arrested", Merritt told The Washington Post. They claimed the release of that information was a "smear campaign" orchestrated by police to assassinate Jean's character.

2 fired cartridge casings; 1 laptop computer; 1 black backpack with police equipment and paperwork; 1 insulated lunch box; 1 black ballistic vest with "police" markings; 10.4 grams of marijuana in ziplock bags (less than an ounce); 1 metal marijuana grinder; 2 RFID keys; 2 used packages of medical aid.

"The taint on the investigation from the beginning was exposed through that warrant and through that content". "I would love to see more information coming out about the warrants executed on the home of the shooter who lived just below him". The mayor says Jean's mother told him, "I'm not angry. 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".

Botham Jean's family and attorneys hold a news conference, again speaking out against the release of the search warrant details.

"I'm calling on the Dallas officials ... please come clean". He doesn't fit the racist, manufactured narrative that often gets thrown at black victims of police brutality, but the Dallas police are trying anyway.

If you don't know.

Authorities have not said whether Guyger's apartment or auto were searched.
