FBI Found No Evidence That Border Patrol Agent Was Murdered

Agent Rogelio Martinez

In his distress call, Garland told the dispatcher: "We ran into a culvert", "I ran into a culvert" or "I think I ran into a culvert", the report said. "To date none of the more than 650 interviews completed, locations searched, or evidence collected and analyzed have produced evidence that would support the existence of a scuffle, altercation, or attack".

And President Donald Trump said the injured agent had been "brutally beaten" as he called again for the construction of a wall between the United States and Mexico.

"Border Patrol Officer killed at Southern Border, another badly hurt". Trump declared on Twitter.

Additionally, the El Paso County Medical Examiner has now released the autopsy report indicating blunt injuries of the head as the cause of death.

"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", El Paso Special Agent in Charge Emmerson Buie Jr. said in a press statement Wednesday afternoon. It said that a Border Patrol dispatcher spoke by telephone to Martinez's partner, Stephen Garland.

Martinez's unnamed partner, who was also injured that night while they were both on patrol, told investigators that he doesn't remember what happened.

Rogelio Martinez died from injuries he sustained while he and his partner were responding to reports of unknown activity the night of November 18 near Van Horn, a Texas town near the Mexico border about 110 miles (175 kilometers) southeast of El Paso.

The search for witnesses spanned multiple states and included electronic billboards in New Mexico and other border states offering a $25,000 reward for information.

The Judge is expected to stay within the 25 to 40-year sentence agreed to in the plea bargain when she hands down her sentence. Mick Grewal, Margraves' lawyer, said he's been in communication with the sheriff and prosecutor and hoped to avoid charges.

The FBI has considered other theories, such as an accident or an altercation between the two agents, a Department of Justice official with knowledge of the investigation had said.

New details have emerged in the FBI investigation into the death of a West Texas Border Patrol agent last November.

He suffered significant injuries to his head and back but was released from the hospital a few days after the incident, walking with a cane, officials said.

Melinek stressed that the report contains limited information, and she didn't have access to photos, X-rays and other materials available to the El Paso medical examiner who performed the autopsy. They have been charged with offenses involving the "smuggling of an alien", but the agency said they are not suspects in the investigation of Martinez's death.

Rogelio Martinez died while patrolling in the Big Bend Sector of the border in Texas. The defendants are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

"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.

A $70,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of the attacker or attackers.
