Ortiz is a 10-year veteran of the Webb County Border Patrol.

Juan David Ortiz, an intel supervisor for the Border Patrol, was found about 2 a.m. when state troopers tracked him to a hotel parking lot in the border city of Laredo, Texas. He is suspected of killing four women and kidnapping a fifth woman who alerted authorities after she escaped.

Further details were sparse.

Cuellar said investigators have "very strong evidence" that he is responsible for the deaths of the four women, who are believed to worked as prostitutes. It's also not clear exactly when and where the crimes took place.

"This case broke open yesterday with an aggravated kidnapping and then a lookout for a suspect, in this case Ortiz", said Isidro R. "Chilo" Alaniz, Webb County district attorney.

Feinstein called a meeting late Wednesday to share with the lawmakers the letter's contents but not the letter itself. Two other people familiar with the matter confirmed it concerned an incident alleged to have occurred in high school.

Authorities didn't disclose the victims' names or nationalities and they declined to discuss the evidence or say how the women were killed - but local media outlets have linked them to at least three bodies found in the area over the last two weeks.

Law enforcement officers gather near the scene where the body of a woman was found near Interstate 35 north of Laredo, Texas on Saturday. Authorities believe he acted alone. The Sheriff's office says Luera was alive when deputies arrived but later died at the hospital.

"We want to reassure the citizens of Laredo that the community and your families are safe", the Laredo Police Department said in a statement on Saturday afternoon, according to the Houston Chronicle. That information belongs to the corresponding agencies who are handling the information and will make a more in depth release at the appropriate time.

The Associated Press reported that U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials confirmed Ortiz is a supervisory Border Patrol agent.
