A US Border Patrol agent suspected of killing four women was arrested after a fifth woman managed to escape from him

Texas authorities charged a US Border Patrol supervisor with murder following what they called a two-week serial killing spree that left four female sex workers dead and ended when a fifth woman escaped at a gas station and found help.

Ortiz fled and was found hiding in a truck in a hotel parking lot in Laredo, about 235 kilometres southwest of San Antonio. But authorities declined to discuss the evidence or say how the women were killed.

The 35-year-old suspect, an intel supervisor for the Border Patrol, was found hiding a auto park in Laredo, Texas, at around 2am after he initially fled police on Saturday.

The names of the victims were not released but Alaniz says two are US citizens.

Authorities didn't disclose the victims' names or nationalities but said they may have been prostitutes.

He said that authorities believe Ortiz had killed all four women since September 3.

A U.S. Border Patrol agent is in custody in connection with the killings of four women and the kidnapping of a fifth in Texas.

The bodies of two of the women were discovered earlier this month along Interstate 35 in rural northwest Webb County, the Laredo Morning Times reported, while the third and fourth were found in the same area this weekend.

Ortiz, Cuellar said, spent 10 years as an agent with the US Border Patrol.

"We feel that our efforts have gathered strong evidence against this killer. While it is CBP policy to not comment on the details of an ongoing investigation, criminal action by our employees is not, and will not be tolerated", Meehan said. Cuellar said investigators believe heacted alone.

"Out of respect for 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".
