No Evidence Border Patrol Agent's Death Was A Homicide

Agent Rogelio Martinez, 36, was found clinging to life and his partner severely injured at the bottom of a culvert in a remote part of Texas 110 miles southeast of El Paso on November 18. The FBI in El Paso said Wednesday it can not find any evidence that an attack led to his death.

Six Union Pacific Railroad employees working in the area were also interviewed and 26 searches have been carried out in separate parts of Texas and New Mexico.

The FBI conducted more than 650 interviews and investigated a number of theories, the agency said Wednesday.

"There were no defensive wounds" on Martinez and his partner and "there was no third-party blood or DNA evidence from the scene or from the agents' clothing", according to an internal memo, from acting US Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan, which was obtained by CNN.

The FBI also reviewed a telephone conversation between a Border Patrol dispatcher and Garland, who was disoriented and unsure of his location.

Sen. Ted Cruz sent out a statement saying, "This is a stark reminder of the ongoing threat that an unsecure border poses to the safety of our communities and those charged with defending them".

The FBI's statement came a day after the El Paso County Medical Examiner's Office issued its autopsy report, stating that Martinez, 36, died from blunt injuries to the head. The memo notes that the Border Patrol dispatcher who took Garland's distress call on November 19 specifically wrote in a log book that Garland had told him the men had "ran into a culvert".

In the wake of the mysterious incident, local cops suspected that Martinez and his partner might have been clipped by a tractor trailer as they stood just a few feet from the busy Interstate 10.

Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, the agents' union, concluded the agents were brutally beaten with rocks. As part of this effort, the FBI has investigated multiple theories, including whether the Border Patrol Agents were ambushed or attacked or whether their injuries were as a result of an accident or any other relevant criminal activity. They have found no evidence to support that.

Moore also faces 11 felony charges in Detroit, where prosecutors allege he sexually assaulted three girls from 2011 to 2017. When we become aware of such images, we remove them and notify the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children .

The Medical Examiner was not, however, able to determine the manner of death - meaning that an accidental death was not ruled out after autopsy. A forensic analysis later determined they had nothing to do with Martinez's death or the injuries to Garland. An indictment is merely a charge and should not be considered as evidence of guilt.

In the statement, the Federal Bureau of Investigation states that they have "aggressively pursued all logical leads and investigative avenues", and "multiple theories, including whether the Border Patrol Agents were ambushed or attacked or whether their injuries were as a result of an accident or any other relevant criminal activity".

The FBI will continue to investigate the incident involving Agent Martinez and his partner, and will pursue any new and relevant tips and leads.

The FBI statement offered the most detailed information to date on the events of November 18.
