TN: By killing one’s host, guest standing is lost

By attacking and killing his hosts, his parents, defendant lost guest standing, if he would have had it at all. Police conducted a welfare check and found severed body parts in plastic tubs and on the stove, including a head in a pot on the stove, and plastic sheeting. The welfare check was reasonable when his mother did not show up for work for a going away party for her retirement. State v. Guy, 2023 Tenn. Crim. App. LEXIS 136 (Apr. 28, 2023).

The FAA’s investigative subpoena here was within the agency’s authority and appeared otherwise reasonable. United States v. Wagner, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 73933 (S.D. Cal. Apr. 27, 2023).*

Defendant was not a transient guest in the place searched. The proof showed he’d been staying there two weeks and had stuff showing he was essentially living there for the time being. Thus, the seizure of his cell phone on the search of the premises was reasonable. United States v. Brown, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 73791 (M.D. Ga. Apr. 27, 2023).*
