Border Patrol agent from El Paso sector found dead along remote New Mexico trail

LORDSBURG, New Mexico -- A U.S. Border Patrol agent for the El Paso sector was found dead along a trail in a remote stretch of New Mexico's Hidalgo County, officials confirmed Saturday.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection, in a statement issued Saturday, identified the deceased agent as 26-year-old Johan Mordan.

CBP officials said Mordan was "working in the remote boot heel area of New Mexico when agents lost communications with him" on Thursday. After a brief search, he was found "unresponsive lying on a trail."

Efforts by fellow agents to revive Mordan were unsuccessful, officials said, and they were awaiting the results of an autopsy to determine his cause of death.

Mordan had been a Border Patrol agent since July of last year, the agency indicated.

CBP Acting Commissioner Mark Morgan in a tweet on Saturday said "it is with great sadness that we mourn the loss," adding that Mordan had "served his country and community with honor."

Mordan was the second border agent from the El Paso sector to die this year while on duty in the boot heel area of New Mexico. In January, 48-year-old Alfredo Nino was found unresponsive at a remote outpost in Animas.

  1. Why is this news? Happens. If you have no value to blacks lives/brown lives then this doesn’t matter. Or is there exclusivity or exemption?

  2. Was he on drugs? How about we speak about the drug rehab allowed for CBP/LE? If he was on drugs the his life is devalued by mainstream. Who cares.

      1. alberto muerto gets picked up alot. Arrested numerous times for drugs, shop lifting and sucking d*cks at Ascarate park.
        IT is just a loser trying to get attention here. Just a slimy bastard.

  3. There will always be scoundrels that talk the talk but never walk the walk. A young man has died and all we here from alberto muerto and his kind of how bad the BP and the police are. Such hatred spewed from their mouths. This type of misanthrope will never understand Dr Martin Luther King’s speech of judging someone over their character and not the color of their skin. BLM and the demokkkrats just are hateful fools that need to be defeated. Otherwise they will keep spewing their hate for those of us that want peace and equality for all.

    1. You are such a hypo-crite, Coco-nut. You are very selective about who you defend. He was on foot patrol in a very hot, dry and arid area. He might have passed away from dehydration or possibly heart related issues. Right away you make judgments based on race. Go back to your coco-nut shell and shut up.

  4. The only way to get your attention, Edge of Nothingness, is to hit you on the head with a 4 x 4 like a mule. The protests are not going away until you cry uncle. Get used to it, racist jerk.

      1. Racists like alberto muerto, caca roach cara, ux2 and some others that post here are just the losers that couldn’t make it. They blame everyone but themselves for not reaching their goals. The screw it up then its the white supremacist, or the cops, or santa clause. Anyone but themselves.

    1. ” hit you on the head with a 4 x 4 like a mule protests are not going away until you cry uncle. Get used to it”
      Who is the racist here? I guess you are the unwashed that never listened to Dr King. Did you?

  5. Nazi Feo calling someone Racist? Ha,ha,ha,ha,hee,hee,hee. Wait! Ha,ha,ha,ha,hee,hee,hee. Sorry. I cant, ha,ha,ha,hee,hee,stop laughing. Dude, you ARE the quintessential Racist Nazi who takes after Daddy Trump.

  6. Hey Cara. Leave these two knuckleheads alone. They are literally too Stupid to insult. Two old jackasses too old to change their view of Reality before them. DONNIE is Done For! Your one term failure of a President had one chance and blew it. Too dumb to be a President for all people only good to be President of Trump Enterprises LLC. Tin Horn wannabe American President is going back to his Gilded Cage in 2021.

    BIDEN 2020!!

    1. ux2, jealous much? Get a grip you will still get your social security check.
      Trump! Trump!Trump!Trump!Trump!Trump!Trump!Trump!Trump!Trump!Trump!Trump!Trump!Trump!Trump!Trump!Trump!Trump!Trump!Trump!Trump!Trump!Trump!Trump!Trump!Trump!Trump!Trump!Trump!Trump!Trump!Trump!Trump!Trump!

  7. All that childish back and forth ignores what is important here. How did this young public servant’s life end? The BP is caught in a political middle and they do a very difficult job. On one side you have anti-immigrant Nazi filth like the orange buffoon and on the other side you have real dangers to the nation that the BP works to curtail.

    1. mark you are such a fraud and hypocrite. First you say that what is important here is how this young man died. Then you come right back with your racist rant accusing Trump of being a Nazi Pelosi. Start with the real racists that posted their venom here first. That means you.
