EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - Books on atheism make up the list of items investigators took from the homes of the East Texas church arson suspects. Two more search warrants have now been filed in the case of Jason Bourque and Daniel McAllister.
The two remain in jail, charged with burning down Dover Baptist Church in Lindale.
"I just heard a big boom," said Frankie Armstrong. She lives near Grand Saline.
Armstrong said around 4a.m. Sunday morning she heard loud noise. "I didn't know what was going on," she said.
Armstrong later found out, that noise was coming from her neighbor's home on F.M. 857. It was authorities carrying out their search warrant. What they found inside is now the focus of two more reports filed, late Tuesday evening.
Jason Bourque's wallet, several rifles and Skechers shoes made the list. Authorities said Skechers shoe prints have been found at multiple church burn sites. They also found books.
A copy of The Creators, Demon Possession and The Atheist's Way. Reportedly, The Atheist's Way details believers' conversions to atheism and claims to help other readers live moral lives without gods.
Jason Bourque's family home in Lindale was also searched, yielding a small plastic bag of "suspected" marijuana seeds, more Skechers shoes, and three Bibles.
We asked the owner of the home near Grand Saline for a comment about the search, but he declined to give one. We have posted all the search warrants released so far. Click here to read through them
