Apple served with warrant for Texas mass killer’s iCloud data

Here we go again: another mass shooting, another killer’s iPhone that police can’t get into, and potentially another legal battle over Apple’s encryption.

Earlier in the month, the FBI announced it couldn’t break into the iPhone of Devin Patrick Kelley, the shooter in the mass murder of 26 people in a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas.

Now, court records seen by the San Antonio Express-News show that two days after the FBI’s announcement – and its bemoaning of the way Apple’s encryption hampers law enforcement – a Texas Ranger obtained search warrants for data belonging to the Sutherland Springs killer.

One warrant, issued on 9 November, is for files stored on an iPhone SE found near Kelley’s body and on a second LG phone. Another warrant seeks files stored in Kelley’s iCloud account – specifically, phone

Cops jam a warrant into Apple to make it cough up Texas mass killer’s iPhone, iCloud files

Here we go again…

Police officers in bodu armour mill around in field

Texas Rangers have obtained a search warrant for the contents of a blood-splattered iPhone SE belonging to gunman Devin Kelley who killed 26 people in a murder-suicide at a church.

Over the weekend, the US state’s equivalent of the FBI served the Cupertino phone-flinger a warrant demanding photos, messages and other potential evidence on Kelley’s iPhone as well as those stored on its associated iCloud account. Investigators also have a warrant to extract data stored on Kelley’s second handset, an LG flip-phone. He was named as the shooter in the November 5 Sutherland Springs mass-murder.

At this point it is not known if the files sought can all be pulled from backups held in the iCloud account, or if some will need to be obtained directly from the iPhone. If the iPhone is locked and

Specifically, the cops want all the messages, calls, social media passwords, contacts, photos, videos and other data since January 1, 2016, from the bloodied iPhone and iCloud account.

Apple served with warrant in Texas mass shooting case — is another showdown with authorities in store?

Will Apple again find itself at odds with authorities in a high-profile case involving unlocking a gunman’s iPhone?

The gunman in the mass shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas earlier this month was found with an iPhone, and Texas authorities have served Apple with a warrant seeking access to his information.

This might bring to mind another infamous mass shooting that thrust Apple and an iPhone into the spotlight — the 2015 San Bernardino attack in which Apple refused the FBI’s request to fashion a “back door” to unlock one of the shooters’ iPhones. The Silicon Valley giant’s reason: It did not want to compromise other iPhone users’ privacy and security.

No new trial for Sheley: Appellate court says judge’s nap doesn’t warrant relitigation

Nicholas Sheley looks around the courtroom during opening arguments May 19, 2014, at the Rock Island County Justice Center. An Illinois appeals court has ruled that the judge falling asleep during one of Sheley’s murder trials doesn’t warrant a retrial, saying Judge Jeffrey O’Connor’s nap was harmless as long as he wasn’t sleeping during crucial evidence or motions.

Bourbon Street mass shooting ‘possibly over woman’: warrant …

The beef between the two accused gunmen in the Nov. 27 mass shooting on Bourbon Street that killed a man and wounded nine others was “possibly over a woman,” according to the arrest warrant for one of the suspects.  

A warrant for the arrest of one of those suspects, Travon Manuel, 20, of Lafayette, says the “ongoing feud” between him and Jordan Clay, also 20 and from Lafayette, stemmed from the fact that Clay used to date Manuel’s current girlfriend.

Early on after the shooting, New Orleans Police Superintendent Michael Harrison said the gun battle that resulted in the death of Demontris Toliver and wounding of nine others — none who was an intended target — was precipitated by a prior dispute between the two. Manuel’s warrant sheds light on that dispute and shows how police identified their suspects. 

The warrant says police obtained surveillance video showing the gun battle. Additionally, it says one of the shooters allegedly
