Botham Jean's neighbor who testified as a key witness against Amber Guyger in her murder trial was shot dead in Dallas.


Joshua Brown, who was brought to tears as he testified about his neighbor Botham Jean suffered a similar fate on October 4, 2019, when he was shot in the 4600 block of Cedar Springs Road.

Brown, 28, was shot in the back and thigh at around 10:30 PM last Friday night at an apartment complex near the Dallas Medical District.

He was the key witness during the Jean vs. Guyger murder trial, and his death came just a couple of days after Guyger's sentence was released.

The Tragic Death of a Key Witness

The Dallas Police found Brown on the ground with multiple gunshots and immediately brought him to the Parkland Memorial Hospital, where he passed away from his injuries.


While no suspects have been found, witnesses told the police that they heard several gunshots and saw a silver four-seater sedan speeding out of the parking lot at the time.

According to Dallas County prosecutor Jason Hermus, who was the lead prosecutor in the Guyger case, Brown was an exemplary man who stood up when no one else wanted to speak up.


Brown's Key Witness Testimony

"He bravely came forward to testify when others wouldn't. If we had more people like him, we would have a better world."

In Brown's testimony, he revealed that through the door, he heard two people meeting by surprise. While he couldn't make out what they were saying, he soon after heard two gunshots coming from across the hall.

Joshua Brown was Jean's neighbor, as the two men lived across each other. Brown also shared that he met Jean for the first time on the day he was killed, and they had a brief conversation in the hallway.


Amber Guyger's Prison Sentence

Two days before Brown's death, Guyger received a 10-year sentence for the death of Botham Jean, five of those without parole.

When she found out about her sentence, Botham's younger brother Brandt hugged the suspect, saying he "forgives her" for what had happened.


Meanwhile, now that there's another tragic murder case related to the Guyger case, one can hope the same justice is given to Joshua Brown, who fought so hard for Jean to get the justice he deserved.
