Jean, 26, was shot dead by agent Guyger in his apartment in South Dallas on Thursday night. Guyger claimed that she entered the department thinking it was her own

Two cases were also seized, a police backpack, a vest, a laptop, two electronic keys, two medical assistance packages and a lunch box.

"They immediately started looking to defame him," Merritt said in a statement seen in the Associated Press.

The family's lawyer, Ben Crump, also told Fox 4: "This is just an unpleasant attempt to kill the character of a wonderful young man."

"It's the same old playbook … they kill the character after they kill the person." He did not kill anyone. He was killed. & # 39;

Family lawyer Lee Merritt added: "I think it is unfortunate that the law enforcement agencies begin to immediately criminalize the victim, in this case, someone who was clearly the victim who has nothing to do with the fact that He was shot in his house.

"I would love to see more information about the orders executed in the house of the shooter who lived right under him, I have not seen any of those.

"And in particular so that this day will be the day we remember and celebrate it … to see the common assassination attempt against the victim that we often see in the forces of order involved in shootings."

Writer and civil rights activist Shaun King confirmed in a statement on Thursday that the police did not carry out a search warrant at the white officer's home.

King said in a Twitter statement: "Since the authorities searched the apartment of the murder victim and published the results, I only asked for the results of the warrant for the arrest of Amber Guyger's house, since she was the author.

– Guess what they said? DOES NOT EXIST. They NEVER registered it in their house!

Guyger has been accused of involuntary manslaughter. She was incarcerated on Sunday, but was released that night after posting a bond of $ 300,000.

The official autopsy of Jean, whose funeral took place on Thursday, will determine the details of his murder.

Guyger stated in his affidavit that Jean's door was ajar when he entered and then killed him after he ignored the verbal orders.

The video obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com with the help of a neighbor who lives on the same floor shows that the doors in the apartment building of Jean and Guyger are heavy metal fire doors that close automatically if released.

The video proves that Guyger could not have used his key to force the opening of Jean's door, which he previously claimed to have made in his statement to the Texas Rangers.

The first heartrending photos of the victim's apartment show the remains of food and materials he had been reading when he was shot dead.

On the floor, a slipper belonging to Jean is housed a little under the cushion of the room.

The family's lawyer, Lee Merritt, told Inside Edition that he visited the complex in the hope of finding answers to better understand the motive behind the murder.

Merritt said, however, that "he did not find anything that would provide clarity."

When the Dallas lawyer was asked if he believed agent Amber Guyger knew his black neighbor above, whom he shot, he replied: "Not in the sense that most people think … [not] as a past relationship. "
