In January 2008, U.S. Border Patrol Agent Luis Aguilar was run down by Mexican drug smugglers as he tried to lay spikes across their vehicle's path to flatten its tires. I wrote about Agent Aguilar's tragic death, and the scant attention it received at first, here.
His killer, Jesus Navarro Montes was apprehended a short time later in Mexico, released by a Mexican judge, arrested again and ultimately extradited to the USA. I wrote about his first arrest, and the scant coverage it received, here.
The killer was convicted in Agent Aguilar's death just this April. Today, it was reported by Fox news, that Navarro was sentenced to life without chance of parole. See the report here:
Every now and then justice is done. Though I would rather that justice had been served extra crispy this time, I suppose if they could not execute him then life in prison was the next best thing.
All the best,
