The death of the Border Patrol agent and the injuries to another have sparked extreme controversy with many on the right and Border Patrol agents believing an attack occurred, while many on the left pushed a narrative that an accident had occurred.
During the course of the investigation, the FBI Special Agent says he identified a “subject vehicle” and that he believes “contains trace evidence associated with the murder of a Border Patrol agent and the assault of another, alien smuggling, and drug trafficking.”
On November 19, Breitbart Texas broke the story about the suspicious death of a U.S. Border Patrol agent and the injury of a second in the Big Bend Sector.
Soon after the initial story, the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) publicly stated that the agents were following a group of illegal aliens when they were attacked with rocks.
