ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) – Testimony enters a second week in the murder trial of Floyd Brown, the man accused of killing McHenry County Sheriff’s Deputy Jacob Keltner at a Rockford hotel.
Among witnesses today, a former FBI agent said police found firearms and ammunition in Brown’s hotel room.
Former FBI agent Douglas Seccemb said a ballistic vest, two 9mm pistols and nearly 200 shotgun shells were found in a duffel bag under the bed in room 305, where Brown was staying.
Several bullets were recovered from his bedroom door and wall, as well as from room 306 across the hall.
Former Rockford Police Sergeant Jeffrey Davis testified that he found two rifle casings under the window of room 305. Keltner’s body was found nearby.
He also claimed that a bush under the window had been freshly damaged.
On Friday, paramedic Marco Ricaldone testified that Brown told him he fell from a 3rd-story window.
Two rifles and nearly nine boxes of 9mm ammunition were also found in Brown’s car.
Something that was mentioned a few times on Monday was Brown’s cellphone data after investigators said they found a cellphone and two computers in the room. Two FBI agents talked about the phone, but no analysis was heard on what data, if any, they were able to recover.
Every deputy U.S. Marshal who helped serve the warrant that day has testified so far. They claimed they were shot non-stop as they attempted to serve a warrant on Brown. Brown’s defense attorney asked each of them the same question, whether they fired their gun and whether their guns were returned and tested. All said no.
