Still, Jean's mother condemned the release of the information about drugs in her son's apartment.

The Fox headline and the promotion that marijuana was seized at Jean's apartment recalls the many instances where irrelevant information has been spread about black men and children after they have been shot by police as a means of casting doubt on their victimhood. Guyger claims she went to what she thought was her third-floor apartment, but she was actually a floor up at Jean's.

Merritt said there will be more evidence that will come to light as this investigation continues. In his words, "They immediately began looking to smear him".

Guyger told police she entered Jean's apartment on September 6 after realizing the door was slightly cracked.

The police then got a warrant to search the victim's apartment and found marijuana inside, trying desperately to somehow rationalize what happened. Guyger shot Jean on Thursday night and was arrested on Sunday.

"This is a question about her using deadly force and whether you could say, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that there is no reasonable view of what she did", said Eugene O'Donnell, a former police officer and prosecutor who is now a professor at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice.

Religious leaders from the Dallas area say they are outraged and saddened by the death of a 26-year-old man killed in his apartment by an off-duty police officer last week.

Jean family attorney Lee Merritt has called for the firing of Amber Guyger over the fatal shooting of Botham Jean.

Dallas County District Attorney Faith Johnson has said the manslaughter charge against Guyger could be upgraded when her office presents the case to a grand jury.

She drew her firearm and yelled commands at Jean, according to the affidavit.

Eight days after Botham Jean was shot to death in his own apartment by a Dallas police officer, lawyers for his family have called for the firing of the officer who shot him and blasted a search warrant that uncovered a small amount of marijuana in Jean's apartment. The lengths the Dallas police going to in order to make sure that narrative fits Botham Jean are so over the top that it would be laughable if we weren't talking about an unspeakable tragedy.

Others speaking at the funeral talked about Botham Jean's willingness to always help anyone and the devout Christian's love of singing.

There were packed pews at a suburban Dallas church for the funeral for Botham Jean. It's also been pointed out Jean had a distinctive red doormat outside his door, which should have made Guyger realize she was at the wrong place.

She has been released on bond.
