‘Heavily Redacted’ Botham Jean Incident Report Released

The City of Dallas recently released an extremely small portion of the Botham Jean incident report after an open records request from FOX4, the television station has reported.

According to FOX4, incident reports typically contain long narratives which describe the circumstances surrounding a shooting death.

But the television station said in this case, all but the first four sentences, which contain basic information, are blacked out.

Saint Lucian Botham Jean was shot dead in his own apartment on September 6, 2018 by Dallas Police Officer, Amber Guyger.

The killing sparked days of protest.

Guyger was later fired and indicted on a murder charge last month.

The former police officer, who lived in the same apartment complex as Jean,  claimed that she mistook his apartment for hers.

The incident report on the case, which lists the offense as manslaughter, exempts just about every other detail — including standard sections which ask if Guyger was under the influence of alcohol or drugs, FOX4 said.

It does state that Guyger and Jean were strangers, it reported.

According to the December 28, 2018,  FOX4 news report, in another response to the attorney general ruling, the city released Guyger’s personnel file.

“It is also heavily redacted and reveals nothing more than her name, badge number, and salary of $4,300 a month,” it was reported.

“The Texas Attorney General’s office concluded releasing the information at issue would interfere with the prosecution of a crime,” FOX4 stated.

  1. We can never go forward,because the investigation is still pending,so nobody talking,how long will it take ? till we start getting the nitty gritty.

  2. How long until Amber Guyger’s trial starts? I have a hunch she was really drunk. Every story I’ve ever heard about someone entering the wrong apartment/ house, the person was drunk.
