I doubt it recorded anything, unless the victim had the presence of mind to yell "Alexa, record" or something while he was being murdered. ::) :o

Still, it almost sounds like the they rejected the warrant on the grounds that it was technically flawed, asserting that they believed the thing was 'always recording', which is not the case. It's possible a better warrant would be responded to.
