    Any updates about this case?

    It proves my point that the USBP agent has the most dangerous law enforcement job in the US

      I heard about it on Fox News Radio and decided to see if ODMP had anything on it. As you can see, the information was pretty vague. Here is a link from the local paper down there. I am quite aways away from there in Central Ca and this is approximately 50 miles north of the Mexico border and 100 miles NE of San Diego. It appears that when the article was written they hadn't notified the officers family, yet. The article doesn't mention the agents name but I am sure it is the same officer.

      Border patrol agent found dead in canal

      A California Border Patrol agent was found dead Friday evening, floating in the Coachella Canal, near the Salton Sea, officials said.

      As reported on thedesertsun.com, the agent apparently drowned and was found in a canal, said Agent Enrique Lozano.

      The agent, Lozano said, died while on duty.

      A second spokesman with the El Centro office said the dead agent was stationed in Indio.

      At press time, the agent's family had yet to be notified.

      The Border Patrol did not release the agent's name.

      At the scene, Border Patrol Agent David Kim told broadcast reporters that the agent was reported missing about 3 p.m. Searching agents found his vehicle in a remote area near the canal and later found his body in the canal.

      Kim also told broadcast reporters that there had been past incidents where agents on patrol had fallen into the canal.

      Lozano would not confirm broadcast reports that the dead agent had been reported missing earlier in the day, and that his body was found by other Border Patrol agents who had been searching for him.

      Riverside and Imperial county sheriff's deputies responded to the scene at the Salton Sea near Niland, in Imperial County, which is about 60 miles southeast of Indio.

      Officials could not say whether the agent's death was an accident.

      The incident remains under investigation.
