More than a week after border patrol agent Rogelio Martinez was mortally wounded -- and days after his burial -- Martinez's family still has no idea how he died. Several officials have called the west Texas incident an "attack" or "ambush."
Details remain scant in what the FBI describes as a "tragic incident" that left one Border Patrol agent dead and another in serious condition. The FBI said both men were found injured late Saturday in a culvert area - a tunnel structure used for water drainage - in southwest Texas.
A Border Patrol agent was killed and his partner seriously injured on Sunday morning in an attack in rural West Texas while they were on patrol, according to the federal authorities and Senator Ted Cruz of Texas. The United States Customs and Border Protection provided few details about what happened but said the agents were "responding to activity" near Interstate 10 in Culberson County, Tex., about 90 miles east of El Paso, when the episode occurred.
