Van Susteren Presses White House for Details on Border Agent's Slaying

Fox News host Greta Van Susteren is pressing for the White House to come clean with the family of a slain Border Patrol agent and provide details about his death. Brian Terry was gunned down Dec. 14, when his unit confronted suspected bandits in an isolated Arizona canyon about 13 miles north of the Mexican border, but his family and colleagues still have little information.

“The family of a gunned down border patrol agent is pointing in one direction, the White House,” Van Susteren said Monday on her “On The Record” show. “Bandits armed with AK-47s shot him in the back, they murdered him. That's all we know because no one in our government is talking.”

Van Susteren’s guest, Devin Dwyer, a reporter with ABCNews.com, said the family is distraught about the lack of official contact.

“I talked to the stepmother of Brian Terry a few weeks ago,” he told Van Susteren. “She says the family doesn't have a lot of essential information they hoped they would have received by this time. Things like what was Brian doing? How many men were with him? How were these alleged bandits armed? Was there a fifth suspect? There is believed to be a fifth suspect still at large. Where is he?”

Both the family and Terry’s colleagues essentially remain in the dark, Dwyer said.

“My sense in talking to the family and talking to T.J. Bonner, president of National Border Patrol Council, [is that] they want the investigation to release more details about where they are at and why they haven't pressed any murder charges,” Dwyer said. “There aren't any murder charges yet filed. But we learned this week the four suspects, who are in custody being held by immigration authorities, are being charged . . . on immigration charges.”
