52. That's right! omg. I just found these articles..

It does look like a cover up between Guyger and the Officials..

Botham Jean's door was unlocked, lights were off when Officer Amber Guyger mistook his apartment for hers, official says

The Dallas police officer who killed 26-year-old Botham Jean in his own apartment got inside because the door wasn’t locked, a law enforcement official said Sunday.

So.. the police are going with a different story than the witnesses. Killed because she "came off a 15 hour shift" and "he left his door unlocked and she didn't notice the RED DOORMAT."

Family disputes official account of the moments before Amber Guyger shot Botham Jean

One attorney, Lee Merritt, said two independent witnesses had come forward to say they heard knocking on the door in the hallway before the shooting. Merritt said one witness reported hearing a woman's voice saying, "Let me in, let me in." Then they heard gunshots, he said.

Lawyers for Jean's family disputed the narrative in the arrest warrant affidavit at a news conference streamed live by WFAA-TV (Channel 8) Monday evening, saying Jean was a meticulous man who wouldn't have neglected to close and lock his door.

After the gunshots, one of the witnesses reported hearing what she thought was a man's voice saying, "Oh my God, why did you do that," Merritt said.

This affidavit is very self-serving," said lawyer Benjamin Crump, who is also representing the family. "Botham Jean is not here to give his version of what happened because he's dead."
