Another Arrest Made In Brian Terry “Fast And Furious” Murder Case

posted on October 19, 2017

While those responsible for the disaster known as Operation Fast and Furious may never be held accountable for their actions, the last of the suspected killers of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry is now in custody.

The Washington Post reports that Jesus Rosario Favela-Astorga was arrested by Mexican authorities and is being charged with first-degree murder. He and several others are accused of killing Terry when they encountered him on a stakeout with other agents.

The murder case caused the public exposure of Operation Fast and Furious, a “gunwalking” operation that saw the federal government allowing American guns to be smuggled into Mexico. The idea was supposedly to track the firearms, but most of them went missing, including some which were used to murder Mexican citizens as well as Americans such as Brian Terry.
