Border Security Guard Killed on El Paso's Paso Del Norte

The first murder of 2008 in El Paso, Texas, was a security guard working at the border. The security guard was working for a private firm at the bridge in El Paso, and was killed by a man trying to cross the border.

Cruz Vite, 58, was guarding the pedestrian toll booth at the bridge when 29-year-old Pablo Aragon attempted to enter. A fight occurred and Aragon struck the guard a several times before running off. Vite was taken to the hospital where he later died.

A woman who has worked at a nearby parking lot for 16 years said the killing is disturbing. “It’s scary you know, you never know what's going to happen. You know you don't know if you’re going to get assaulted, you really don't know."

Police have charged Aragon with one count of felony assault, but the charge could change depending on the autopsy results.

  1. WHY!!!!!! O'l peDro was just doing one of those things AMERICANs don't wanna do!!!!!!!!!!!! Along with DRUG SMUGGLING, PEOPLE SMUGGLING & who knows what else we AMERICANs don't wanna do. Of course, he's just trying to make a better life for himself here in AMERICA. So I guess it's OUR fault that that BORDER GUARD was trying to stop him from his better life here in AMERICA.
