Texas authorities find federal agent dead, 3 hurt

MISSION, Texas (AP) — The FBI says a Border Patrol agent found dead in South Texas is the focus of an investigation prompted by the kidnapping and assault of three females.

Both the FBI and U.S. Customs and Border Protection released few details Thursday on events that unfolded the night before. The CBP says authorities encountered an injured woman who told them that she and the two others had been attacked by a man. Authorities then later found the second injured female.

The investigation took authorities early Thursday to the Mission home of the agent, who was found dead. The third female was found there.

The FBI says the three victims are not U.S. citizens. They were being treated Thursday for injuries.
