Investigators found a single .22-caliber bullet under an air intake box during a search around the car's engine. They found numerous .22-caliber bullets inside a fuse box in the engine area.
Inside the glove box were a cellphone, a video recorder and a 16-gauge shotgun shell.
Police believe Lane was shot at 2:56 p.m. on Aug. 16, based on a 911 call. A surveillance video recording shows Edwards arrived at the courthouse in the Ford Focus at 3:21 p.m. Aug. 16.
The recording shows Edwards hugging another male. Edwards is later seen with his father in an assistant district attorney's office on his juvenile case.
In a request of a search of the car, the district attorney's chief investigator told a judge, “Your affiant believes that once Edwards, Jones and Luna drove past Christopher Lane and fired the shot at Lane, the three suspects drove to the back of the Duncan Inn Motel and waited 11 minutes and then drove a short distance and then proceeded to the Stephens County Courthouse where your affiant observed James Edwards after 4 p.m. in the district attorney's office.”
The inventory of the car search and the investigator's affidavit for the search warrant were filed at the Stephens County court clerk's office.
