    Unhappy Tucson sector Border Patrol agent killed in on-duty crash

    Arizona Daily Star 8:10 a.m. MST August 12, 2016

    A Tucson Sector Border Patrol agent was killed in a crash on Thursday, officials said.

    The agent was riding a dirt bike while on duty on the Tohono O'odham reservation south of Sells.

    A statement released by Customs and Border Protection said Agent Manuel Alvarez, 37, a 13-year Border Patrol veteran, was assigned to the Casa Grande Station of the Tucson Sector. The agency said Alvarez is survived by his wife and four children.

    No details were released about what happened. An agency spokesman said the department would not release any more information on the incident.

    "Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Agent Alvarez," CBP Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske said in a statement posted to Facebook.

    Agent Art del Cueto, president of the Border Patrol agent's union, said Alvarez "was a great guy. He was my classmate in the academy."

    Del Cueto declined to further comment, saying he was too distraught to talk.

    Oh that is so sad. Poor guy. Was it an accident or was a crime involved? I guess we'll find out in the days to come. Either way, these agents risk their lives every day in rough terrain chasing rough people. A very dangerous job.

    We need the wall.
