Border Patrol agent arrested in Texas as a suspected serial killer

Border Patrol agent arrested in Texas as a suspected serial killer

Starting almost two weeks ago, local investigators were trying to find a killer of women whose bodies were found in the border county that abuts the Rio Grande.

Alaniz said the case broke Friday when a woman was reportedly kidnapped and escaped. None of the women's names have been released, pending notification of family members.

Webb County District Attorney Isidro Alaniz is describing Ortiz as a "serial killer".

He is suspected of killing four women and kidnapping a fifth woman who alerted authorities after she escaped.

Czech Tennis Star Calls Serena Willams' U.S. Open Meltdown 'Bulls***'
It was the final of a Grand Slam , for goodness sakes, and Williams deserved some discretion and the benefit of the doubt. First, he said everyone gets coaching, which is widely known in professional tennis, even if Grand Slam rules forbid it.


Ortiz, Cuellar said, spent 10 years as an agent with the US Border Patrol.

Cruz told deputies that after the woman escaped at the gas station, he picked up an unknown woman from an underpass in Webb County and later told her to get out of his truck. The victim was "battling for survival" and had a gun pulled on her during the attempted kidnapping, according to Chapa.

"We have very strong evidence that he is the person who has been killing", Webb County Sheriff Martin Cuellar said at a news conference posted on KGNS's Facebook page.

The bodies of two them were discovered earlier this month along Interstate 35 in rural northwest Webb County, according to reports.

The two fighters switched roles, with Triple G trying to counter Alvarez and the Mexican fighter coming forward much of the fight. Fans took to their respected outputs on Saturday night immediately after the Mexican was handed a decision win over "GGG".


Court documents state Ortiz confessed to the murders, which are listed chronologically in arrest documents.

Alaniz said investigators are still trying to determine a motive for the killings. "The evidence then collected by the law enforcement investigators indicates that there was probable cause to indicate that this individual was responsible for this series of murders, which I would qualify as a serial murder that we have".

The names of the victims have not been released, but Alaniz says two are USA citizens.

While it was not agency policy to comment on the details of an ongoing investigation, Meehan said, criminal conduct by CBP employees is not, and will not be, tolerated. "There are charges pending related to multiple homicides in the Laredo area", he said. "This is crime that is consistent with bigger cities". We also spoke about hiring more Professional Responsibility officers so that they can police their own. "It can happen. People need to be careful".
