Authorities are demanding Apple turn over all photos, messages and documents that might have been stored on an iPhone belonging to Devin Patrick Kelley, the crazed gunman who shot dead 26 worshippers at a Texas church.

The Texas Rangers obtained search warrants for files stored on Kelley's phone, which was discovered near his body after the Nov. 5th bloodbath at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, The San Antonio Express-News reports.

Those files kept may be stored in Kelley's iCloud account, according to law enforcement officials.

An Apple spokesman told the Express-News the company does not comment on law enforcement matters.

The warrant comes as authorities continue to piece together the motives behind the mass shooting that stunned the nation.

During a church service, Kelley went aisle to aisle shooting victims — including crying babies — at point-blank range. He later died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Kelley is said to have had a history of domestic violence and received a bad conduct discharge from the Air Force after pleading guilty to assaulting his first wife and stepson.
