Texas Border Patrol Agent Arrested And Charged With Four Murders

A US Border Patrol agent has been arrested and confessed to the murders of four people in the town of Laredo, Texas, near the Mexican border.

Juan David Ortiz, 35, was arrested on Saturday and charged with four murders and one unlawful restraint with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

CNN reports that the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agent was arrested when a fifth victim escaped an attempted kidnapping. Webb County District Attorney Isidro Alaniz says that the victims were all females and worked as prostitutes. They were all shot in the head and killed between September 3 and September 15.

Authorities became aware of Ortiz’s activities on Friday when a fifth woman escaped his grasp. Speaking with police, the unnamed woman said she was in a truck with a man named “David”. Ortiz reportedly pulled out a gun and pointed it at the woman but she managed to flee and find a state trooper at a nearby gas station. After describing Ortiz, police tracked him down at near a gas station in Laredo, Texas, where he was hiding in the bed of a pickup truck.

In a statement, a US Customers and Border Protection spokesperson said the agency is cooperating with authorities.

“While it is CBP policy to not comment on the details of an ongoing investigation, criminal action by our employees is not, and will not be tolerated.

“Out of respect for the victims’ family and friends, we ask that deference and due process be given to the investigation so that all the facts are brought to light and they can receive the closure they deserve.”

    And this is car related news how?????

    • LJ

      It’s not. It’s completely inappropriate political nonsense.

      • Scherpereel Clement

        No it’s not political, it god damn murderer that got caught !
        As to the car related I agree, beside that the guy was driving one fot working and was hiding in one.

        • LJ

          Of course it’s political. Murderers get caught everyday. What makes this guy so special?

          • Scherpereel Clement

            It’s a god damn border patrol ! A guy that is supposed to enforce the law, not breaking it !
            Also if one day you have a cop going crasy with his patrol car, you’ll see the footage here because it’s unusual.
            Again I agree to say that this new is a bit out of the theme here.
            And other then that no one talked about politics here other than you, no one gave their opinion on either or not is a good politic. There is a border, cops patrol, period.

      It is not at all. Should not be on this site

  • Jds65

    TF does this have to do with cars and… of-course, it’s BRAD.

  • Mr. EP9

    That’s disgusting and atrocious but there is literally no reason this story should be here. Just because he was found hiding in the bed of a pickup doesn’t suddenly mean it’s car related or relevant to any developments in the automotive world.

  • Raul

    Stick to cars and NOT LAW ENFORCEMENT

  • Matthew Boyd

    What is this depressing $#!t doing on here? Not car related either, neither are half the horrible accidents you guys have posted lately. Let’s get back to the car world please, plenty of news for that.
