Concerted Effort by Mexico and U.S. Authorities to Apprehend Murderers of Border Patrol Agent
Mexico City, July 24, 2009 – The U.S. Embassy in Mexico regretfully confirms the shooting death of a Border Patrol Agent near Campo, California, 18 miles east of Tecate, Mexico. As it appears the perpetrators may have fled into Mexico, Mexican and U.S. law enforcement authorities are cooperating intensely in a widespread manhunt on both sides of the border.
The United States government and the Embassy of the United States in Mexico wish to express their appreciation for the tremendous efforts by the numerous law enforcement agencies of the government of Mexico and the state of Baja California to help bring the perpetrators of this crime to justice.
Chargé d’Affaires John Feeley emphasized, “Cooperation between both our countries will prove to be the only solution to crime that respects no borders.”
