Border Patrol agent went on 2-week killing spree; 4 women dead

Border Patrol agent arrested accused of killing four women

A U.S. Border Patrol agent suspected of killing four women was arrested early today after a fifth woman who had been abducted managed to escape from him and notify authorities, law enforcement officials said, describing the agent as a "serial killer".

District Attorney Isidro Alaniz said Mr Ortiz, who had been with the Border Patrol for 10 years, was set to face four charges of murder and one of aggravated kidnapping.

Juan David Ortiz, an intel supervisor for the Border Patrol, was found about 2 a.m. when state troopers tracked him to a hotel parking lot in the border city of Laredo, Texas.

Another woman who is suspected to have been a fifth victim is said to have escaped from Ortiz and alerted authorities to him.

"We do consider this to be a serial killer", he said. Investigators found her body on September 4. Investigators have not disclosed her cause of death. All victims were prostitutes in the Laredo area. Luera was rushed to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead from her injury.

Investigators are trying to determine a motive for the killings.

Having just spoken with Webb County Sheriff Martin Cuellar, there is no doubt in my mind that the heroic efforts of these four agencies have saved lives; they are to be commended. She later died from her wounds, the Laredo newspaper reported.

A preliminary investigation confirmed, a woman, with head trauma injury, was found off the roadway on State Highway 255 near mile marker 436. None of the women's names have been released, pending notification of family members. We spoke about how more steps need to be taken to make certain that people who want to become Border Patrol agents receive the appropriate psychological screening to ensure that no person who is capable of these type of actions is allowed to join or remain in the ranks. We value the release of timely information and we are making this notice public in order to remove any unnecessary fear in the community. (In the) meantime we maintain our city's safety and security and our responsibility to make you feel safe as well. Breitbart Texas reached out to Laredo Sector officials on Saturday afternoon.
