The Appellant, Bush, appealed his conviction of murder. The evidence collected and utilized at trial included Bush’s searches recovered from his computer before and after the commission of the crime.


Bush’s hard drive was forensically examined. The examination revealed that Bush had conducted searches prior to the charged crime for the terms “silencer,” “silencer + plan,” “homemade suppressor,” “how to make a homemade silencer/suppressor,” “build a .22 caliber suppressor,” “suppressors and silencers,” and “build a .22 caliber suppressor.”  This information was submitted into evidence. The Supreme Court affirmed the conviction based upon this and other extensive circumstantial evidence.
