FILE - This undated file photo provided by the Texas Department of Public Safety shows Devin Kelley, the suspect in the shooting at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, on Sunday, Nov. 5, 2017.

The inability to access Kelley's phone highlights a longstanding frustration of the FBI, which said it has been unable to retrieve data from half the mobile devices it tried to access in less than a year. Technology companies have insisted they must protect customers' digital privacy. (Texas Department of Public Safety via AP, File)
