A U.S. Border Patrol agent was arrested early Saturday on the suspicion that he killed four women and abducted a fifth, all in the sex trade.
Alaniz and his office have referred to the slayings as "serial killings".
According to Alaniz, authorities plan to charge Ortiz with aggravated kidnapping and murder. He said authorities believe Ortiz was "profiling" and "hunting" certain types of victims.
Browns plan to release Josh Gordon
A handful of teams have already called the Browns about a potential Gordon trade, one of which is apparently the 49ers. He missed the entire 2015 and 2016 season due to various suspensions for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.
He is a 10-year veteran of the agency and worked in intelligence, authorities said. Eduardo Chapa spoke to reporters on behalf of the sheriff's office, revealing that the bodies of four women were attributed to Ortiz's attacks.
The investigation was started earlier this month after the body of Melissa Rameriz was found. When she tried to get out of the pickup truck, Ortiz grabbed her shirt - but Pena was able to pull it off and run away, fleeing toward a state trooper who was refueling his patrol vehicle, according to the affidavit.
Affidavits acquired by the Laredo Morning Times say the first body was located September 4 and a second victim was found alive Thursday morning, but died at a hospital. Police have not released the identities of those victims, nor any details on how they were killed other than to say that heat deaths occurred in a manner consistent with the slayings of Ramirez and Luera.
The victims were shot in the head, according to an affidavit.

As a border town copes with the aftermath of a serial killer, law enforcement officials were thrown into the national limelight at a news conference this weekend. In a statement, Customs and Border Protection said it was cooperating with investigators.
In fact, Ortiz allegedly had a fifth victim, a woman who escaped and helped police track down her assailant, the CBS report said. Laredo is about 150 miles southwest of San Antonio. We also spoke about hiring more Professional Responsibility officers so that they can police their own.
"I extend my condolences to the families of the victims during this hard time". "Out of respect to the victims' family and friends, we ask that deference and due process be given to the investigation so that all the facts are brought to light and they can receive the closure they deserve", he added.
