Border agent indicted for capital murder in 4 Texas deaths

December 6, 2018 | Brainwave Science


A U.S. Border Patrol agent has confessed the murder of four sex workers. The investigators found out that he wanted to “clean up the streets” of his hometown in the border of Texas

Webb County District Attorney Isidro Alaniz said he will seek the death penalty for the September killings. He also said that evidence presented to the grand jury showed Juan David Ortiz killed the women in a cold manner. Ortiz’s own words wanted to clean up the streets of Laredo by targeting this community with many sex workers who were perceived to be disposable.

Ortiz, 35, believed law enforcement wasn’t doing enough to curb prostitution, so he felt obligated to do a service by killing the women. Three of the women were shot to death, and the fourth was also shot but died of blunt force trauma. Ortiz, who has been held on murder charges in the Webb County jail on a $2.5 million bond since his Sept. 15 arrest in Laredo, is clearly a threat to society. The Border Patrol intel supervisor and Navy veteran seemed to be living a typical suburban life with his wife and two children when the killings occurred. He was only arrested after one victim was able to escape him and asked a state trooper for help.
His peers say that Ortiz was a regular person during the day. During nighttime, he was different. He hunted for this community of people. It is believed that Ortiz knew some of the victims. They were Melissa Ramirez, 29, and 42-year-old Claudine Luer.

On Sept. 14, Ortiz picked up another woman, Erika Pena. She told investigators that Ortiz acted oddly when she brought up Ramirez’s slaying and later pointed a gun at her while they were in his truck at a gas station. Pena said Ortiz grabbed her shirt as she tried to get out of the truck, but she pulled it off and ran, finding a state trooper who was refuelling his vehicle.

Ortiz fled and killed his last two victims — 35-year-old Guiselda Alicia Cantu and 28-year-old Janelle Ortiz. With Pena’s help, authorities were able to track Ortiz to a hotel parking garage where he was arrested. The Border Patrol placed Ortiz on indefinite, unpaid suspension after his arrest.


Texas experienced some of its most heinous crimes this year. Violent crime in Texas is advancing at a faster rate than the nation. There have been numerous allegations of sexual abuse, sexual assault, kidnapping and latest serial murder on Customs and Border Protection employees, including Border Patrol agents. Most of the crime conducted by Border Patrol agents is found dubious, not sustained or misleading. This leads to their exoneration due to lack of vital evidence. 

This case must be solved quickly so as to restore the faith of the public in the law enforcement agencies to provide safety and security in the region. If law enforcement officers commit a crime, they must face penalties harsher than those which the general public faces.

The revolutionary technology called iCognative, developed by Brainwave Science is the biggest upgrade ever in investigation and interrogation methodologies.

With unsurpassable accuracy iCognative, is the technique which can help law enforcement agencies to accurately determine crucial information stored in the brain of Ortiz. This technology can help solve this case and other cases while eliminating human  torture

In this case, iCognative technology can help to provide usable intelligence and other crucial information which can not only help solve this case but also help uncover a larger criminal organisation, if any. iCognative technology can help the Law Enforcement agencies to investigate efficiently and deliver accurate results. There are no false positives and no false negatives reported by this test. A 45-minute iCognative test involves crime-specific information (stimuli) which is uploaded onto the system. This is displayed to the subject and the brainwave response of the subject is recorded using a specialised wireless headset. Information including the date of the murders, names of victims, photos of victims’ bodies and that of the murder weapon are used for the Brain Fingerprinting test.

iCognative technology is powerful enough to determine if the information under question is present in the suspect’s brain or not, with over 99% accuracy, thus making the test incomparable to other interrogation and investigation techniques.

iCognative by Brainwave Science is an innovative tool that is significantly changing the way crimes are solved. In this case, iCognative is the tool which can help law enforcement agencies to confirm the officer’s guilt and helping close the case quicker.
