Federal Bureau of Investigation offering reward for information about Border Patrol agent's death

"We owe a great deal of gratitude to the fearless men and women of the United States Border Patrol who serve every day to protect our homeland", said Governor Abbott.

Border Patrol Rogelio Martinez died under mysterious circumstances while on duty on November 20, 2017. His partner, who has not been identified, remains in the hospital in serious condition.

Agent Rogelio Martinez and his partner were responding to activity while on patrol near Interstate 10 in the Van Horn Station area when Agent Martinez's partner reported that they were both injured and in need of assistance.

Authorities believe Martinez may have fallen into a culvert and said Martinez's partner actually radioed for help after the incident but has no memory of what occurred.

Mount Agung on Bali erupts
The volcano's status is set at the third highest alert level, the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) has previously said. The island's aviation alert has been increased to orange as per procedure but the busy global airport remains open.

An FBI spokeswoman told the San Antonio Express-News on Sunday that the agents were "not fired upon", but she didn't elaborate.

Border Protection spokesman Carlos Diaz confirmed to The Associated Press in an email that the FBI was in charge of the investigation.

Martinez had been a border agent since August 2013 and was from El Paso.

Authorities did not provide any details Sunday on what caused the agent's injuries or what led to them.

Earlier, the Republican tweeted that 'resources must be increased to prevent these attacks in the future'. We are grateful for the courage and sacrifice of our border agents who have dedicated their lives to keeping us safe. The president offered his condolences to Martinez's family.

'We will, and must, build the Wall!' he tweeted on Sunday. He also said Martinez's partner was "brutally beaten and badly, badly hurt" but that it "looks like he'll make it". The second injured Border Patrol agent is now in a local El Paso hospital's intensive care unit (ICU) in stable condition.
