The death of Rogelio Martinez, 36, remains somewhat of a mystery to investigators, who are offering a $25,000 reward for information in the case.
Martinez leaves behind a distraught mother struggling to understand what happened to her son. “I loved him, and I miss him,” Elvia Martinez told CNN.
Martinez and a fellow agent were discovered at the bottom of a ravine in Texas after they had responded to a sensor triggered in the area, law enforcement sources told ABC News. The fellow agent, who has not been named, was only injured, and he has since been released from the hospital.
On Monday, authorities were open to the possibility that the two agents had inadvertently slipped into the ravine because of a lack of concrete evidence, the sources said.
Visitation will be held for Martinez today from 5 to 9 p.m. local time at Martin Funeral Home in El Paso, Texas, with a vigil at 7 p.m. A funeral Mass will be held Saturday at 1:30 p.m. at Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church.
