Docs: Dallas attorney possibly spied on before murder

Newly unsealed document revealed new evidence that suggests someone may have been spying on the prominent Dallas attorney who was murdered in May.

The Dallas Police Department released the new documents in Ira Tobolowsky’s murder Wednesday night. The warrants confirmed Tobolowsky was "set on fire" in the garage of his home in North Dallas.

The documents also detailed evidence that Dallas police seized at two apartments. The names of the people who live in the apartments were redacted.

The search warrants say police seized tools including a drill and drill bits they suspect were used to drill holes in the fence around Tobolowsky’s home to spy on him. They also took gas containers, a propane torch and clothing from the apartment.

Tobolowsky's body was found in the garage of his burning home in May after a suspicious fire. The medical examiner says he died of blunt force injuries, burns and smoke inhalation.

The search warrants also revealed Tobolowsky told his family he felt threatened because of a lawsuit he was involved in, and police are looking into whether there is a connection.

No arrests have been made so far.
