Possible break in Border Patrol Agent's death?

Bennie Garza | 07 December, 2017, 11:01

ABC-7 is not identifying the suspects because they have not yet been charged with a crime.

Border Patrols believe they caught two groups of people that are involved in smuggling networks at the Arizona-Mexico border.

A second person, reportedly familiar with the brothers, identified the two men in the group by name to the informant.

The suspects allegedly told the coyote they assaulted the Border Patrol agents with rocks.

The documents released this week are the strongest sign yet investigators believe that Martinez was the victim of a gruesome roadside beating on November 18. Though the specifics of the area where the Border Patrol agents were found makes it unlikely that any fall could have resulted in such injuries to both agents; however, there still exists the possibility that a vehicular accident or attack may have occurred.

FBI agents investigating the unexplained death of a Border Patrol agent have turned their attention to two brothers who may be suspects in the case, one of whom has been taken into federal custody on an immigration violation, according to court documents filed this week in New Mexico.

They have denied their involvement, but admitted to driving the vehicle. Investigators were told the 2004 Pontiac Grand Am the three were traveling in broke down in Tatum, New Mexico, near Portales. But the Federal Bureau of Investigation has only said it is treating Martinez's death as a "potential attack", and had yet to determine if he could have died in an accident or under other circumstances.

In an interview with the woman, investigators say she overheard one of the brothers talking on the phone about smuggling meth and heroin.

The warrant, issued December 2 by a federal judge in Albuquerque, is to search a Pontiac Grand Am for "trace evidence associated with the murder of a Border Patrol agent and assault of another".

Another agent, whom court documents identified for the first time as Stephan Garland, was found near Martinez with serious injuries, and no memory of what happened.

In the affidavit, the Federal Bureau of Investigation agent requests a search warrant for a 2004 Pontiac Grand Am that he believes "will contain trace evidence relating to drug trafficking, the murder of Agent Martinez and the assault of Agent Garland". He is believed to be in Odessa and it is unclear if he has been taken into federal custody. Now one of the brothers is in custody for being in the country illegally. He is charged with entering the US after previously being deported in 2015.

KTSM is working closely with our sister station KRQE in Albuquerque on this developing story.
