Feds Offer $1M for Fugitives In Brian Terry Killing

July 10, 2012  | 

Federal authorities in Arizona announced they're seeking four suspects involved in the fatal shooting of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, and the FBI offered $1 million for their capture on Tuesday.

Federal officials indicted five men in the December 2010 killing of Brian Terry, including one who is already in custody. A sixth suspect was charged with conspiracy relating to robbery, but not the killing. The indictment was unsealed in Tucson.

"Agent Terry died in the line of duty while protecting his country," United States Attorney Laura E. Duffy said. "But he was more than a federal agent—he was a son, a brother, a co-worker, and a friend to many."

The defendants, who are all Mexican nationals, allegedly entered the country to robbing drug traffickers of their contraband, when Terry and his t eam encountered them. Agent Terry was killed in a firefight that began with the agents firing bean-bag rounds, while the defenedants allegedly returned fire with AK-47 semi-automatic rifles. Two of the rifles were tracked back to the "Fast and Furious" operation.

The defendants have also been charged with assaulting three other Border Patrol agents during the Dec. 14, 2010, gunfight.

The indictment charges Manuel Osorio-Arellanes, Jesus Rosario Favela-Astorga, Ivan Soto-Barraza, Heraclio Osorio-Arellanes, and Lionel Portillo-Meza with crimes including first-degree murder, second-degree murder, conspiracy to interfere with commerce by robbery, attempted interference with commerce by robbery, use and carrying a firearm during a crime of violence, assault on a federal officer, and possession of a firearm by a prohibited person.

Rito Osorio-Arellanes, the sixth defendant, is charged with conspiracy to interfere with commerce by robbery.

Manuel Osorio-Arellanes has been in custody since his arrest the night of the shooting. Rito Osorio-Arellanes has been in custody since December 12, 2010, when he was arrested by Border Patrol agents on immigration charges.

Feds offered $1M did they get that approved by Holder? The mastermind of this disgusting mess. We complained about Tricky Dick!

John @ 7/10/2012 5:43 PM

Funny, Holder gets held in contempt of Congress, then the DOJ suddenly tries to get serious about solving this murder. Brian Terry was killed in December of 2010 and one of the people involved has been in custody since then.
Why haven't they tried this before? Can you say smoke screen?
Holder and his boss, the prevaricator in chief need to go

Tom Ret @ 7/10/2012 6:45 PM

Is there anything this administration does or does not do that isn't politically motivated!

hank hill @ 7/10/2012 7:24 PM

1mil aint much but for that i will give you obambam and holder!

Tom Ret: Easy answer-NOPE. This administration is as corrupt as any cartel, from lying under oath to hiding evidence. If we don't get them out in November we may have lost our Country. I say we charge holder with negligent homicide and obuma with aiding & abeting.

Greg @ 7/11/2012 3:58 AM

I'd say charge Odumbo with accessory after the fact. Holder...gives the old saying, "Sell him South" a new meaning.

My wife had worked with Brian Terry when she was at customs...she has nothing but praise for him professionaly and personally...pity the likes of Bama' & Holder helped cause his death.

FireCop @ 7/14/2012 9:59 AM

I hope if these charges are valid that they get the guys and give them the death penalty. With that said, I think most of us hold Holder and his boss responsible for at least some of this mess. Get out and vote this November or we can stop complaining. Be safe.

Brian @ 7/24/2012 2:21 PM

That one mugshot on the right side. I'm fairly certain I've seen that fellow. The clear image surely gives him away. Glad they added that pic of him, otherwise I wouldn't be able to report him to the police.

GENIUSES!!!!
