Baby toys, lists of seized items among finds in San Bernardino shooters’ home – CNN
The apartment contained many things that you’d expect in any other apartment, from couches to clothes, from a refrigerator to drawers. There were also distinctive touches, like a clock that looks like a giant watch pinned to a wall, a tapestry with Arabic writing and a copy of the Quran.
Not to mention the suggestions that authorities had been here, from piles of items to shattered glass to boarded-up windows. The most tell-tale example may have been documents from the FBI showing lists of items taken from the home.
The scene was made all the more surreal given how, interspersed amid the clutter, was a little rocker, an ExerSaucer, a crib and other evidence that this home very recently was occupied not only by two killers, but a baby.
Some online and elsewhere shuddered at the idea of reporters prowling around a place that, by authorities’ own admission, not long ago contained ammunition, pipe bombs and other evidence. CNN law enforcement analyst Harry Houck, a retired New York police detective, said he was “having chills down my spine” looking at the throngs walk around an apartment he felt was “clearly … full of evidence.”
But FBI spokeswoman Lourdes Arocho told CNN, “The search is over at that location.”
The shooting took place late Wednesday morning, though it wasn’t until late that night that Miller realized — after seeing it on television — its connection to his Redlands property. Friday was the first time he’d been inside since he’d refurbished the apartment before Farook and Malik moved in in mid-May.
He got word Thursday night that authorities were done with their work there and that he, and apparently whomever else he allowed, could go inside.
“My reaction right now is it’s not real,” Miller said. “It’s unreal.”
