Agent Clinton Thrasher Down (Texas)
Agent Clinton Thrasher was killed in an aircraft accident while assisting Border Patrol agents search for a suspected smuggler who had fled on foot during a vehicle stop.
Agent Thrasher was in radio contact with ground units while attempting to maintain visual contact on the suspect when the Cessna 182 he was piloting crashed onto a ranch in northern Hidalgo County, Texas.
Nearby units observed a smoke plume and immediately responded to the scene of the crash. A large manhunt was undertaken to locate the smuggler who was the subject of the initial search.
Agent Thrasher had served in law enforcement for 10 years. He is survived by his wife and two children.

Rest easy, brother. We've got the watch.
