I do not know who to believe. This is Osceola & things have a strange way of getting twisted around here. Maybe he did it maybe he did not. One thing for sure is law enforcement never admits something they may have done wrong. They will circle the wagons to protect their own.

They could have had a warrant in a matter of minutes.

Brandon invited them in which nulled the need for a warrant. Once he was shot and could no longer provide consent, they received one.

It is simple legal procedure.

first of all,they did NOT have a warrant. The warrant they had was for another home. To me it does sound like a cover up. Nothing was said about anything found on his computer. There is no way to prove bf said what the authorities claim he said. However since he is not here to defend himself, it is easy to say he did say it.
Maybe he did what they say he did but the way the authorities are going about it, it sounds like there is a cover up.

Note just so you know the warrant was not for his home and it was admitted they found no evidence. So, hmm yeah bullshit.

Wait so they worried about a warrant after a compliant person was shot and killed? So he let them in "If you have something to hide you don't do this" confressed to crimes that had no evidence for no reason at all? Sure that happened. And then instead of being under arrest for committing such crime (in cuffs) he went to the bathroom aka for a gun? When he talked to his father i heard he was fine, not at all like a person that was nervous or gonna spontaneously confess to crap they aren't gonna find.

I'm glad the FBI released this. I'm glad the public can see that he was found to be in possession of what? Some thousand images of child porn. That it came from his email, and that he CONFESSED.

And as for everyone saying that him going for a gun just doesn't make sense? It makes perfect sense. He knew d*mn well that he was NOT ONLY going to the pin for the rest of his life, but would also completely disgrace his family, and shame his family name. More than likely forever ruining his fathers business. So, he turned coward and pulled a suicide by cop. It's common sense that if you pull a gun on an officer, you will die. So, instead of the above happening, he copped out.

And for those saying "there was no confession", I'm sure the FBI recorded the conversation. If OPD has enough sense to record their interviews, I'm willing to bet the FBI does as well.

And for the idiot saying the children were 17 year old girls. No. That is not what he confessed to. He didn't confess to teens. He confessed to manufacturing, and distributing CHILD porn. CHILDREN. Stop trying to down play what he's done.

As for Jessica Lucy. Didn't they say there was a young woman who they could not positively identify in those photos? I doubt she didn't know. And I'm glad her daughters father is no longer here to photograph her, and molest her.

I work with Osceolas community. An I must say. He vast majority.... Believe what's been released. As it should be.

I agree with the last post also. They are not just going to show up in Osceola, with out some kind of proof. The warrant might have been for a different address that doesn't mean it wasn't intended for him. Its sad, but quit harping on it and trying to make it the FBI and everyone else's fault.

Now think about this situation. Do you have any idea how much documentation a law enforcement officer has to fill out when deadly force is used? No normal person would want to do it. It is a lot of work and very time consuming. Heck if they use a tazer on someone they have to document that. People have a tendency to believe being a police officer is a easy job. It is not. Just look at the stupid stuff people do here. They take affidavits over childish nonsense from adults every day and must maintain a straight face at the same time.
