Border Patrol Officer Suspected of Killing Four Women in Texas

Border Patrol agent arrested in Texas as a suspected serial killer

A US Border Patrol agent was taken into custody in Texas on Saturday morning in connection with the killings of four people and aggravated kidnapping, according to Webb County Sheriff Martin Cuellar.

Alaniz described Ortiz as a serial killer. Two fellow sex workers in Laredo, Texas, had been recently killed, and one of them was her friend Melissa.

In fact, Ortiz allegedly had a fifth victim, a woman who escaped and helped police track down her assailant, the CBS report said. Ortiz fled from state troopers and hid in the parking lot of a Laredo hotel, where he was arrested.

He has admitted the slayings to cops, the paper reported, citing a police affidavit. Police were alerted to a third body Saturday morning and then a fourth around noon on Saturday along I-35 outside Laredo.

Authorities say Ortiz was arrested early Saturday after a woman he had abducted escaped and told law enforcement officers, who pursued him.

According to the affidavit, Ortiz told investigators that after Pena ran off, he picked up his last two victims, whose identities have not yet been released by authorities.

"Chilo" Alaniz sought to drive that point home during an impromptu press conference Saturday following the arrest of 35-year-old Juan David Ortiz on multiple counts of murder and other charges.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection issued a statement saying that it was fully co-operating with the investigation.

Alaniz tells The Texas Tribune that two of the victims were USA citizens while the nationalities of the others are unknown.

Isidro Alaniz, district attorney for the Webb and Zapata counties, said he believed Ortiz acted alone in the murders while off duty.

"While it is a long way CBP coverage to no longer comment on the principle points of an ongoing investigation, felony stream by our workers isn't any longer, and can no longer be tolerated", his observation read.

The 35-year-old suspect, an intel supervisor for the Border Patrol, was found hiding a auto park in Laredo, Texas, at around 2am after he initially fled police on Saturday. "We value the release of timely information and we are making this notice public in order to remove any unnecessary fear in the community", the statement said.

The victims were shot in the head.

He said investigators are still working to determine a motive.

Authorities said that nearly had no doubt that Ortiz was behind the gruesome acts, with Webb County Sheriff Martin Cuelllar stating that police are in possession of "very strong evidence" implicating Ortiz.

"I extend my condolences to the families of the victims during this hard time".
