"Search warrant: Marijuana found in Botham Jean's apartment after deadly shooting".

Bertram and Allison Jean want to know why Dallas officer Amber Guyger shot and killed their son in his own apartment.

According to court documents, Officer Amber Guyger, 30, said she mistook his apartment for her own and thought she encountered a burglar. The headline, which has since been changed, highlighted the marijuana in the search warrant affidavit without mentioning any other items that were seized from Jean's apartment.

The list included two bullet casings, a police backpack and vest and 10.4 grams of marijuana.

Many of Jean's colleagues from PricewaterhouseCoopers, a multinational professional services firm with an office in Dallas, where he worked as an accountant and was known by his nickname "Bo", also filled the church pews, including the company's USA chairman and senior partner, Tim Ryan.

CEO Tim Ryan says the company started a scholarship fund in Botham Jean's name. "One said 'that Bo's smile was contagious and you could not be unhappy in his presence.' One said, 'Bo encompassed the best in humanity in a smile, in a hug, and with his friendship.' And several said, 'Bo was somebody I could look up to.' And one summed it up best listening to the words today: 'Bo always looked for the best in situations and in people'".

Of the tweet sent out by Fox 4, thousands of people responded.

"I would love to see more information coming out about the warrants executed on the home of the shooter who lived just below him", he said, referring to Guyger. I haven't seen any of those.

'And particularly for it to be on this day the day that we remember and celebrate him.to see the common assassination attempt on the victim that we often see in law enforcement involved shootings'. Her home was never searched although she was the perpetrator. Merritt learned of the latest search warrant details shortly after Jean's funeral Thursday. Guyger says the door was "ajar" and inside noticed "the apartment interior was almost completely dark".

Dallas police executed the search warrant before turning over the case to the Texas Rangers to handle from here forward. She was jailed Sunday but released that night after posting $300,000 bond.

Heartbreaking first photos from inside the victim's apartment show leftover food and materials he had been reading when he was shot to death. The search warrant, which was signed by a Dallas police officer, said that Jean confronted Guyger at the front door.

Inside Edition obtained footage from the South Side Flats apartment which shows a half-eaten cereal bowl Jean was eating from as well as The Autobiography of Gucci Mane he had been catching up on. On the couch, a large stack of pillows and blankets.

Lee Merritt, one of the civil rights lawyer representing the Jean family, claims that apartment doors in the complex close automatically, and so the door could not have been ajar, The Cut reports.

"I went there to find some answers to what happened", Merritt told Inside Edition.

The officer told police that she concluded her apartment was being burglarized and gave verbal commands to the person, who ignored them.
