Suspect Identified as Border Patrol Agent in Serial Murder Case
U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agent Juan David Ortiz was arrest early Saturday on charges of murdering four women and abducting a fifth, the Associated Press reports. The hunt for Ortiz began on Friday, when a woman reached out to police claiming she was snatched by a man and managed to escape.The woman provided police with a detailed description of the subject, including his tattoos, Webb County District Attorney Isidro R. Alaniz told CNN's affiliate KGNS-TV.
Ortiz's arrest came on the heels of a case in April in which authorities in Laredo arrested Ronald Anthony Burgos Aviles, also a supervisor for the Border Patrol, and charged him with killing a woman with whom he was romantically involved and her 1-year-old son.
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.
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. Chapa said investigators are not ruling out the possibility of more victims. Police say all four women were prostitutes. It is believed Ortiz targeted these women and acted alone.
The sheriff's office said all four bodies have been found, and no other victims are expected.
"We feel that our efforts have gathered strong evidence against this killer". Nine days later, police found 42-year-old Claudine Anne Luera suffering from what they described as "head trauma" along the same road. His first victim Laredo resident Melissa Ramirez, 29, (left) was found dead on September 4. The names of those victims have not been released.
"The manner in which they were killed is similar in all the cases from the evidence", said Alaniz.
"Our sincerest condolences go out to the victims" family and friends.
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.
Cueller thanked the Department of Public Safety, the Texas Rangers and the district attorney's office for their assistance in the investigation.
