U.S. Customs and Border Protection confirmed that a Border Patrol agent was recovered after being badly injured. Reports coming in from various news outlets say that the agent was tortured and horrifically mutilated.

On June 10, U.S. Customs and Border Protection released the following statement about the incident:

“U.S. Customs and Border Protection is assisting in the investigation of a report of an assault against an off-duty Border Patrol agent assigned to the Deming, New Mexico, Border Patrol Station.

The agent was discovered on the side of the road by a motorist at 11 p.m. MDT. The agent suffered multiple, serious injuries to his head, chest and hands.

Emergency Medical Services transported the agent to a nearby hospital where he is being treated for his wounds. The agent is in stable condition.

CBP is working closely with the FBI, Dona Ana County Sheriff’s Office, and the El Paso Police Department on the ongoing investigation.

CBP has informed its workforce of this report and has reminded its law enforcement personnel to be alert and aware of their surroundings and potential threats related to their service.”

The FBI is searching for a suspect in the matter of a U.S. Border Patrol agent who was found severely injured on the side of an El Paso Sector roadway after having been kidnapped. A leaked official document and a variety of sources reveal the name and birth date of the suspect and two images of the man. Sources operating under the umbrella of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reveal the man is believed to have been deported three times prior, each time being allowed to leave the U.S. voluntarily without legal consequences. The suspect is also believed by sources to have connections with the Juarez Cartel, or its enforcement arm, La Linea.

A BOLO was issued to federal agents along the border revealing:

(U) Sergio Ivan Quinonez-Venegas is wanted for questioning in connection with the kidnapping and assault of an off-duty Border Patrol agent that occurred on the evening of June 9, 2017.

(U) Quinonez’ date of birth is 01/25/1984. Quinonez has a possible criminal history of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

The BOLO continues further with the names of the FBI special agents leading the investigation, where the document was prepared, and contact information for those parties. The two images provided were also included in the BOLO released to federal agents. Such information was redacted by Breitbart Texas, but the remainder of the BOLO is provided below.

It is important to note that the suspect’s alleged connections to a Mexico-based criminal group do not mean that the cartel sanctioned the kidnapping or assault. The fact that a suspect was so quickly identified lends to the idea that the victimized Border Patrol agent was possibly able to provide the identity of his alleged captor — a possibility that raises concerns in itself. It is also important to note that such a personal attack on a U.S. federal agent would be out of character for Mexico-based criminal groups. In such cases, it is usually a criminal acting on their own. In these cases, the criminal usually flees back to Mexico and the dominant cartel in the region usually murders the suspect for inviting “heat” or an increased U.S. law enforcement presence, as the death of the suspect is the cartel’s only chance at keeping their trafficking corridor open.

Rumors have swirled among Border Patrol agents in the absence of officially-provided information. Some agents said that the kidnapped agent’s fingers were cut off. Some have claimed four fingers were removed. Others said two fingers were cut off at the first knuckle. Breitbart Texas has been unable to confirm the specifics of the serious wounds to the agent’s hand(s). The only confirmed information of the agent’s injuries came from an official CBP statement that stated “severe injuries” to the agent’s “head, chest, and hands.”

Breitbart Texas first broke the news of the kidnapping and then broke the news that the FBI was leading the investigation; however, we initially decided against publishing the FBI’s suspect’s identity or even that the agency had identified a suspect. We did so out of concern that we might damage the investigation or otherwise present some risk to the lives of special agents investigating the matter. In balancing all concerns, we provided a 48-hour window without revealing more information.
