STATE OF MAINE CUMBERLAND, ss. . - - '-' I \ l ..' .~. UNIFIED CRIMINAL DOCKET DOCKET NO: CR-2009-4017 i-i I './. ' STATE OF MAINE ORDER v. CHAD GURNEY Defendant Chad Gurney moves to suppress all evidence obtained as a result of two search warrants issued on May 29, 2009, and June 9,2009. Mr. Gurney argues that the affidavits supporting the warrants were insufficient to establish probable cause and the searches thus violated his Fourth Amendment right. BACKGROUND Mr. Gurney stands accused of arson and the murder of Zoe Sarnacki. On May 29, 2009, Detective Eli Chase of the Portland Police Department filed an affidavit and warrant to search certain portable electronic devices Mr. Gurney had voluntarily surrendered on arrest. These items consisted of an Apple brand laptop computer, Apple brand iPod portable music player, a Blackberry brand cellular telephone/PDA device, and electronic storage media and data contained within each of the three devices. Detective Chase specializes in computer crimes and has substantial experience with and training in electronics, computers, software, and forensic data recovery. In his affidavit, Detective Chase reported learning that the Portland Fire Department had responded to reports of smoke coming from the third floor of 1 463 Cumberland Avenue on May 25, 2009 at approximately 6:35 in the everling. The Department found a working fire coming from apartment #8 and forced its way inside. As they worked to extinguish the fire, members of the Fire Department found a charred female body lying on a bed in the apartment. The body was later identified as Ms. Sarnacki. The scene was secured, and the Portland Police Detectives arrived to begin their investigation. Apartment #8 had been rented to Mr. Gurney and his was the sole name on the lease. Inside the apartment, detectives found that Ms. Sarnacki's head had been severed and that various items including a crucifix had been placed on or around her body prior to burning. The detectives also learned that Mr. Gurney's best friend was Corey Bryant. Detectives Scott Dunham and Lisa Sweatt located Mr. Bryant and spoke with him at his residence on May 26, 2009, at approximately 1:00 am. Mr. Bryant told the detectives that Mr. Gurney had been planning a trip to Thailand, and that Mr. Bryant had called him on May 25, 2009, but that his calls had not been returned. In the past, Mr. Gurney had told Mr. Bryant that he believed himself to be a prophet. One hour later, at approximately 2:08 am on May 26, 2009, Portland Police Department Officer Jason King was on routine patrol when he stopped a vehicle for failing to stop at a red light. Mr. Bryant was driving the vehicle, and he was actively talking to Mr. Gurney on a cellular telephone. Mr. Bryant informed Officer King that Mr. Gurney was on the phone, and then handed the phone over. Officer King was then able to speak with Mr. Gurney and learned that Mr. Gurney was staying in Room #107 at the Crest Motel in Old Orchard Beach. Mr. Gurney indicated that he wished to turn himself in. The Old Orchard Police 2 Department and Detectives Rybeck and Vogel from the Portland Police were notified. At approximately 4:00 am on May 26, 2009, Ivlr. Gurney left his hotel room and was taken into custody. He was transported to the Portland Police Department Headquarters and interviewed by Detective Dunham. After receiving and waiving his Miranda warnings, Mr. Gurney told Detective Dunham that he had been in a struggle with Ms. Sarnacki, his girlfriend, during which he strangled her until he knew she was dead. He then decapitated her with a knife and walked to a nearby gas station to purchase gasoline. He returned to his apartment, poured the gasoline on Ms. Sarnacki's body, and ignited it. Mr. Gurney then collected a bag he had packed for his trip to Thailand, his laptop, and a shotgun and drove to the Motel in Old Orchard Beach. He claimed to have no particular reason for severing Ms. Sarnacki's head or placing the crucifix and other objects on and around her body. Detective Chase arrived at the Portland Police Department's property and evidence section at approximately 11:30 am on May 26,2009. There he examined the electronic items that had been retrieved from Mr. Gurney's hotel room after he was taken into custody. The Apple brand laptop's LED light was on and pulsing, indicating that the computer was in "sleep mode." Detective Chase did not open the computer's lid or remove its battery because he understood that doing so would risk losing a decryption key for data stored on the computer's hard drive. On May 29, 2009, Detective Chase requested and received a warrant to search the named electronic devices for "[c]omputer records or data, whether in printed or electronic form, that are evidence of indifference to the value of 3 Facebook account. During the conversation Mr. Bryant indicated that he had deleted Mr. Gurney as a friend. Later interviews with Mr. Gurney's friends and former girlfriends led Detective Murphy to believe that relevant information might be contained in Mr. Gurney's Facebook account. DISCUSSION The Fourth Amendment requires a showing of probable cause prior to the issuance of a search warrant. "When determining whether probable cause exists, the judicial officer must rely on 'factual and practical considerations of everyday life on which reasonable and prudent [persons], not legal technicians, act.'" Stnte v. Snmsoll, 2007 ME 33, 9f 1 t 916 A.2d 977, 980 (quoting Illinois v. Gntes, 462 U.s. 213, 231 (1983)) (alteration in original). "Probable cause exists when, based on the totality of the circumstances, 'there is a fair probability that contraband or evidence of a crime will be found in a particular place.'" Id. 9f 12, 916 A.2d at 981 (quoting Stntc v. Wrigltt, 2006 ME 13, <JI 8, 890 A.2d 703, 7(5). \Vhen asked to review the issuance of a warrant, the court's role is to ensure that the judicial officer who issued the warrant "had a 'substantial basis for ... [concluding]' that probable cause existed." Gntes, 462 U.S. at 238-39 (quoting [olles v. United Stntes, 362 U.s. 257, 271 (1960), overrllled all otlter grounds hy Uuited Stntes v. Snlvllcci, 448 U.s. 83 (1980)) (alterations in original). The revievving court directly reads "the affidavit in support of the warrant in a positive light and consider[s] all reasonable inferences that may be drawn from information in the affidavit." Snmsoll, 2007 ME 33, <JI 11, 916 A.2d at 980-81. Mr. Gurney objects to both warrants on the ground that their supporting affidavits fail to establish any evidentiary nexus between the items to be searched and the alleged criminal activity. He also objects that Detective Murphy's 5 affidavit supporting the June 9, 2009 warrant does not establish that the Facebook account of "Chad Thomas" in fact belonged to Chad Thomas Gurney. Detective Chase's affidavit provides a substantial basis for the issuing justice to find a fair probability that evidence relating to Mr. Gurney's alleged criminal activity would be found on his laptop computer, Blackberry cellular telephone/PDA device, and their attendant electronic storage devices. Mr. Gurney confessed to killing Ms. Sarnacki. Credible evidence indicated that he communicated through his Facebook account shortl y before the killing, and used a cellular phone to call his friend Mr. Bryant shortly after. The Blackberry telephone and Apple computer were with Mr. Gurney when he was apprehended on the same evening. The computer was turned on when it was seized, but in sleep mode. The justice could reasonably infer that Mr. Gurney had used his computer to communicate via his Facebook account or in other ways, that he had been using the computer shortly before being apprehended, and that he had used his Blackberry phone to call Mr. Bryant. It was likewise reasonable to believe that there was at least a fair probability that evidence relating to Mr. Gurney's activities, whereabouts, communications, motives, plans, and state of nlind could be stored within those devices. The motion to suppress evidence obtained from the Apple computer, Blackberry cellular telephone, and their attendant storage devices is denied. Unlike the computer and cellular telephone, Detective Chase's affidavit does not make any mention of the Apple iPod portable music player apart from its presence with the other devices. There is no reason to believe that evidence 6 relating to the alleged criminal activity might be found on the iPod, and the motion to suppress evidence from that device is granted. While Detective Murphy's affidavit supplies less support for searching Mr. Gurney's Facebook account than Detective Chase's does for the devices, it does provide a substantial basis for the issuing judge's decision. The affidavit indicates that Chad Thomas Gurney admitted to killing Ms. Sarnacki shortly after surrendering himself to police custody. After the killing but before Mr. Gurney's apprehension, Detectives Dunham and Sweatt interviewed Mr. Bryant at his home. During the interview Mr. Bryant logged into his own Facebook account and was able to tell the detectives that Mr. Gurney had recently communicated through the Facebook network. When Mr. Gurney was found, he had a laptop computer and a Blackberry PDA in his possession. Detective Murphy later spoke with Mr. Bryant about Mr. Gurney's facebook account. From this, the judge could reasonably infer that the detectives learned Mr. Gurney's Facebook identity through Mr. Bryant, and that there was a strong chance Mr. Gurney had used his computer or rDA to update his Facebook ,account around the time of the killing. The judge could also cond ude that there was a strong probability the Facebook records would hold evidence of Mr. Gurney's contucts, locations, uctivities, motives, plans, and state of mind shortly before und after he killed Ms. Sarnacki. The motion to suppress evidence obtained from Facebook, [nc., is denied. The entry is: The \varrants and supporting affidavits contained sufficiently credible and detailed facts to provide the issuing judicial officers with a substantial basis to conclude that the detectives had probable cause to search the Apple brand laptop 7 conlputer and associated storage media, Blackberry brand cellular telephone/PDA device and associated storage media, and Facebook, Inc. The motions to suppress evidence obtained from these items are denied. The affidavi ts did not demonstrate probable cause to search the Apple brand iPod, and the motion to suppress evidence from that Di\TE: 8 anted.
