What the documents contained and the photographs showed were not detailed. Some of the items were taken to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation forensics laboratory in Edmond.

Martinez's house was burglarized during an overnight break in officers' search of the house last month, despite a patrol officer stationed out front assigned to guard the residence.

Martinez's defense attorney, Irven Box, had said he and his client needed to see the search warrant return to see if any items missing from the home were not listed, because those items could have been taken in the burglary. Box said Monday that all the missing items of significant value were listed in the return, but that Martinez may do an inventory of his house to be sure.

“If you have a home with a lot of rooms, it's kind of hard to remember what was in every room,” Box said.

Box and Martinez's family have said the alleged accuser has recanted his story. The family provided media with a video that purportedly shows the accuser saying he lied. Law enforcement officials have not commented on the video.

Oklahoma County first Assistant District Attorney Scott Rowland declined to comment Monday on the case because charges against Martinez have not been filed. Oklahoma City police spokesman Capt. Patrick Stewart also declined to comment because of the ongoing investigation.
