Federal agents zero in on suspects in Border Patrol agent death

EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) - Federal search warrants unsealed over the weekend indicate that the FBI is zeroing in on two suspects in the beating death of Border Patrol agent Rogelio Martinez and the assault of a second agent near Van Horn in late November.

Court records show that Martinez suffered wounds to his head and body resulting in significant blood loss.

The paperwork shows several interviews were conducted and agents learned that a third brother and an American woman admitted to driving to Presidio, Texas to pick up Suspect 1 the day after the attack.

During an interview, Suspect 1 allegedly admitted to crossing the border illegally into the U.S "sometime before November 20."

Court documents show agents collected vacuum samples, removed fabric with red stains from a seat, and retrieved a pair of "dark-colored athletic pants with unknown stains" as well as a pair of blue jeans from the trunk.
