‘Serial killer’ suspect arrested after four murders, he’s border patrol agent

A US Border Patrol agent suspected of killing four women was arrested after a fifth woman managed to escape from him

District Attorney Isidro Alaniz said Mr Ortiz, who had been with the Border Patrol for 10 years, was set to face four charges of murder and one of aggravated kidnapping. Two other two bodies were located following the man's arrest, with the last victim's remains having been found north of Laredo, the alleged perpetrator's last hiding place.

The 35-year-old suspect, an intel supervisor for the Border Patrol, was found hiding a vehicle park in Laredo, Texas, at around 2am after he initially fled police on Saturday.

"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. He said authorities are still trying to pinpoint a motive for the killings, but that all of the women worked as prostitutes.

'It's interesting that he would be observing and watching as law enforcement was looking for the killer, that he would be reporting to work every day like normal, ' Alaniz said. Cuellar said investigators believe heacted alone.

The bodies of two them were discovered earlier this month along Interstate 35 in rural northwest Webb County, according to reports. Federal prosecutors said the agent, Salvador Contreras, 50, sent child-porn images to an undercover agent whom Contreras believed was the mother of 8-year-old and 14-year-old girls. Nine days later, police found 42-year-old Claudine Anne Luera suffering from what they described as "head trauma" along the same road.

It is said Ortiz is an intel supervisor for the U.S. Border Patrol in Laredo.it is also said he is an ex marine veteran.

"I extend my condolences to the families of the victims during this hard time". He said it was the agency's policy to not comment on details of a current investigation, but added, "criminal action by our 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.
