Gustavo Cruz-Lozano told Univision’s show “Primer Impacto” he is the man who shot Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. He confessed to the murder before he turned himself in on charges of threatening to kill Hidalgo County, TX Sheriff Lupe Trevino.
Agent Terry was murdered on December 14, 2010. Weapons found at the scene were connected to the Department of Justice’s gun walking scheme Operation Fast & Furious. Over 2,000 guns were allowed to walk into the hands of Mexican drug cartels and are linked to over 300 deaths of Mexican citizens. Hundreds of guns are still missing.
There is only one problem with this confession. Cruz-Lozano was not one of the suspects arrested or named after Agent Terry’s death. Manuel Osorio-Arellanes pleaded guilty for participating in the murder.
Univision did reach out to the Terry family lawyer Lincoln Combs for comment. Combs is skeptical because Cruz-Lozano was not named as a suspect by the authorities investigating Terry's murder. The Osorio brothers, Jesus Leonal Sanchez Meza, Jesus Favela Astorga and Ivan Rosario Soto Barraza are the five suspects in Agent Terry’s death. The Terry family is currently suing the federal government in a wrongful death suit.
Fast & Furious is a case that leaves people with more questions than answers. Cruz-Lozano and Univision just added even more confusion. Even though the Inspector General’s report came out last year we still do not know who created Fast & Furious and who approved it. In fact, the report only cleared the Fast and Furious whistleblowers, not any of the officials including Attorney General Eric Holder.
Also, how will the media react to this story? Since 2011, Big Journalism has called out numerous outlets for mostly ignoring the story and when they do cover it, they cover for President Obama’s administration.
Breitbart News will stay on top of this and report any updates.
