Arrested Texas border agent described as 'serial killer'

Ayala has lived in the South Texas city her entire life, and said she didn't expect something like the serial murders to happen there.

Ortiz, a 10-year Border Patrol veteran, was arrested early Saturday after the fifth woman escaped and found a state trooper. He fled the scene on foot and ran to a Ramada Inn, where he was found hiding in the bed of a pickup truck, Alaniz said. The first murder took place September 3.

But he had other confessions to make.

Webb County Sheriff Martin Cuellar said in a statement: "We feel that our efforts have gathered strong evidence against this killer". Investigators say Ortiz is believed to have been acting alone.

Laredo is often seen as a relatively small community, but its population has surged over the past 27 years, from 125,787 in the 1990 U.S. Census to 260,654 in 2017.

Texas authorities have charged a U.S. Border Patrol supervisor with murdering four female sex workers during a two-week killing spree that ended when a fifth woman escaped from him and found help.

"Evidence points to him having knowledge and contacts within the [sex worker] community", Alaniz said, including Melissa Ramirez, the first woman Ortiz said he killed. The victim was able to provide a detailed description of Ortiz, including his tattoos, Alaniz said.

He says all of them were sex workers.

Authorities learned Ortiz at a gasoline spot in Laredo, about 100 and sixty miles southwest of San Antonio. At least two were USA citizens; the nationalities of the others were not known, he said.

Japanese billionaire businessman revealed as SpaceX's first Moon traveler
Maezawa says he is not planning to make the lunar voyage alone, but will invite up to eight artists to journey with him. And who does he want with him? SpaceX put out the teaser via Twitter late Thursday, and Musk also tweeted out the news.

Police say he confessed to four killings, but refrain from revealing details of the attacks.

The Texas Department of Public Safety's Texas Rangers are investigating.

The federal agency issued a statement offering its "sincerest condolences" to the victims' families and saying criminal activity by its employees is not tolerated. She was later found dead.

She was a mother of two.

Ortiz stated that he pulled over after Luera "became nervous" and began accusing Ortiz of being the last person seen with Ramirez.

Ortiz said that she got out and that he shot her in the head, the document says. Two of the victims were identified on Saturday - one who was found alive on Thursday but later died at the hospital. That woman escaped and alerted police.

Investigators discovered two more bodies, one on Friday and one on Saturday in a remote area along Interstate Route 35.

He declined to discuss any potential motives, citing the investigation. "It meets the qualifications or definition of being a serial killer - in this case we have four people murdered". Another shot from his vehicle.
