According to the search warrants, police took more than two dozens items from the home including professional drain opener, digital scales, a surveillance system, cell phones, and plastic baggies containing white powder.
We also visited the home where Hughes was killed. There, we spoke to two people who claimed to be his friends. One, Dakota Austin, says he was pulling up to the scene and saw Hughes lying on the ground. He says Hughes had a gun with him at the time but wasn't shooting at police, he was trying to jump on a 4-wheeler parked outside.
