Five search warrants have been secured in connection with the case, according to WFAA.
Two warrants were to remove door knobs from Jean's and Guyger's apartments to "download data" from the electronic locks; one warrant gave permission to retrieve surveillance video footage from the building's management; one warrant was to obtain all communications related to the incident and another warrant was to search Jean's apartment. Weed found during the search of Jean's apartment has been used in an effort to tarnish the 26-year-old man's image.
Advocates for Jean have asked why no warrant has been issued to search Guyger's apartment.
It is believed no search warrant has been issued for Guyger's apartment because she no longer lives there.
According to the Dallas News, the apartment complex Guyger and Jean lived in released a statement that reads: "We are able to confirm that the other resident involved has vacated her apartment and no longer resides at our community."
