Man Detained In Mexico For ‘Fast and Furious’ Murder


While we await the long anticipated Fast and Furious report due out next week, news broke that a man has been detained by Mexican authorities who has been accused of the murder of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry almost two years ago in Arizona.

The weapon used to murder Terry was part of the Obama administration’s gunwalking operation known as Fast and Furious.

Two guns found at the scene were traced to a botched U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) sting operation called “Fast and Furious” that allowed weapons to slip across the border. It was not clear, however, if those weapons fired the fatal shots.

Four others have been accused in the shooting, the ministry said. Officials did not say if they were also being detained.

The Terry family has filed a $25 million wrongful-death claim against the U.S. government because they believe that their son was killed due to the fact that federal investigators purposefully allowed guns from the U.S. to walk across the border and fall into the hands of those who murdered their son.

Watch as the family breaks their silence over their son’s murder:
