Sheriff: Border Patrol agent suspected of killing 4 women

Suspect Identified as Border Patrol Agent in Serial Murder Case

Two of the victims were found earlier this month along Interstate 35 in rural northwest Webb County, the Laredo Morning Times reports.

A U.S. Border Patrol agent was arrested in South Texas on Saturday in connection with a calculated killing rampage that left four people dead in recent weeks around the city of Laredo, the authorities said.

A border control agent in Texas has been arrested for killing four women.

The county's district attorney, Isidro Alaniz, says authorities were led to Ortiz after a woman he tried to kidnap escaped from him. So far only two victims were identified: one was Melissa Ramirez, a 29-year-old woman from Laredo, and Claudia Anne Luera, 42, who was found on a Highway 255 alive and died in hospital.

The Premier League Leaders enjoyed a lot of dominance from the opening minutes of the game with Firmino in the thick of things. Tottenham managed only three shots on target to Liverpool's 10, including Erik Lamela's angled strike in stoppage time.


Mr Alaniz said investigators are still trying to determine a motive for the killings, and that they believe Ortiz acted alone.

Another female victim remained unidentified and was referred to as Jane Doe, Alaniz said. Numerous workers are also low-income women of color.

"The county, the city can rest assured we have the serial killer in custody", Sheriff Cuellar said.

Andrew Meehan, a US Customs and Border Protection spokesperson, said in a statement to CNN that the agency is fully cooperating with investigators.

Ortiz has worked for the Border Patrol for 10 years, according to the sheriff's office.

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. According to the Morning Times report, state police located Ortiz at a Laredo gas station, and chased him when he immediately took off running - only to quickly find him inside a pickup truck in a nearby hotel parking lot.

Alaniz said authorities plan to file four murder charges and one charge of aggravated kidnapping against Ortiz. Officials say that as of now they do not believe that there are any other bodies that have yet to be discovered.

"Our sincerest condolences go out to the victims' family and friends". He also is a US Navy veteran, Alaniz said.
