Reverse search warrant goes to Colorado Supreme Court



The warrant used a Google reverse-keyword search to identify three teens as suspects in the Green Valley Ranch arson that killed a family of five in 2020.

DENVER — The Colorado Supreme Court will review the use of a Google search warrant used to arrest three teens in connection with the Green Valley Ranch arson that killed a family of five in 2020.

In November, Denver District Court Judge Martin Egelhoff upheld the legality of the warrant, which used a Google reverse-keyword search to identify the three teens as suspects in the arson.

However, in a status hearing Friday, an attorney for Gavin Seymour, one of the teens charged in the arson case who is now 18, said arguments about the legality of the search warrant will happen before the Colorado Supreme Court in May. 

Seymour and another defendant, Kevin Bui, are being charged as adults and face premeditated murder charges and dozens of other counts in connection with the fatal fire. The third suspect, 15 years old at the time of the fire, is being prosecuted as a juvenile.
