Sheriff: Border Patrol Agent Suspected Of Killing 4 Women

A U.S. Border Patrol agent was arrested early Saturday on the suspicion that he killed four women and abducted a fifth, all in the sex trade.

South Texas authorities said Juan David Ortiz, 35, an intelligence supervisor with the Border Patrol and a 10-year veteran of the agency, targeted prostitutes. Ortiz was captured in the parking lot of a Laredo, Texas, hotel after fleeing from state troopers.

But both Alaniz and Cuellar declined to discuss the evidence or say how the women were killed.

The names of the victims were not released but Alaniz says two are USA citizens. Alaniz said two of them were USA citizens but the nationalities of the other two were not yet known.

Border Patrol agents are great men and women who work hard to keep us safe, and we thank them for their work.

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

Two of the victims were found earlier on Saturday and on Friday evening.
