Guyger told investigators that she went to what she thought was her third-floor apartment.
After the affidavit was released, Fox 4 News published a story about the search of Jean's home. A judge authorized police to search for guns, fired cartridge casings, trace evidence such as blood, video surveillance and also "any contraband, such as narcotics", according to the affidavit for a search warrant, which the Fort Worth Star-Telegram posted online.
A bus load of students from Jean's alma mater, Harding University in Arkansas, made the trip to attend the service. He said Jean set the highest expectations for himself and worked diligently toward them, but always put God and his family first. Still, Crump maintained that the seized drugs were "nothing but a disgusting attempt to assassinate his character now that they have assassinated his person". He didn't kill anybody. "I would love to see more information coming out about the warrants executed on the home of the shooter who lived just below him". I haven't seen any of those.
"To see the common assassination attempt on the victim that we often see in law enforcement involved shootings", he added.
Writer and civil rights activist Shaun King confirmed in a Thursday statement that police did not conduct a search warrant on the white officer's home.
When discussing the case, Merritt told the Washington Post that eye witnesses claim they heard Guyger knocking on Jean's door and yelling "Let me in!" before the subsequent gunshots. "We've been conditioned to associate black people with crime", even when they are victims, he said.

Guyger was arrested by the Texas Rangers in Kaufman County, Texas on the evening of September 9, 2018, and is being accused of manslaughter, jail records show.
The probable cause affidavit released Tuesday afternoon offers a detailed account of what happened inside Botham Jean's apartment last Thursday night.
After she gave "verbal commands that were ignored", she fired her gun twice and killed Jean.
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.
Heartbreaking first photos from inside the victim's apartment show leftover food and materials he had been reading when he was shot to death.
Jean was born in St. Lucia and moved to the USA where he became a naturalized citizen.
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 says Guyger described the apartment as being dark and she thought "she had encountered a burglar, which was described as a large silhouette, across the room in her apartment".
