Alaniz said it is believed all four women were sex workers.

Juan David Ortiz, a 10-year veteran of the United States Border Patrol, was secretly a serial killer, the district attorney of Webb County, Texas, said Saturday, according to an Associated Press report, after state troopers arrested Ortiz in a Laredo parking lot at about 2 a.m. local time on Saturday morning.

"I extend my condolences to the families of the victims during this hard time".

Alaniz said authorities tracked down Ortiz after a woman, also described as working as a prostitute, escaped after having been abducted. When she tried to get out of the pickup truck, Ortiz grabbed her shirt - but Pena was able to pull it off and run away, fleeing toward a state trooper who was refueling his patrol vehicle, according to the affidavit. They believe Ortiz acted alone.

The woman was in a truck with a man named "David" and the two started talking about one of the prostitutes who had gone missing a week earlier.

Then he shot her in the head multiple times, the affidavit says.

In a statement, Andrew Meehan, assistant commissioner for public affairs for U.S. Customs and Border Protection, said his agency's Office of Professional Responsibility, the U.S. Border Patrol and the Department of Homeland Security Office of the Inspector General are fully cooperating with all investigators.

Ortiz has been charged with four counts of murder and one count of unlawful restraint with a deadly weapon.

Webb County Sheriff's spokesman Eduardo Chapa told CNN investigators are not ruling out the possibility of more victims.

Alaniz and his office have referred to the slayings as "serial killings". The names of the victims were not immediately released. He is suspected of killing four women and kidnapping a fifth woman who alerted authorities after she escaped. On Thursday, Claudine Anne Luera, 42, was found in an area close to where Ramirez's body was discovered.

Christina Ayala, 29, was at H-E-B grocery store shopping on Sunday night in Laredo, and said she and her family had heard about the killings. Ortiz asked for the handcuffs to come off, and the circumstances behind the murders began to trickle out, the district attorney said.
