ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) A U.S. Border Patrol agent, who died while patrolling a remote part of West Texas, was laid to rest in El Paso on Saturday (November 25). The death of agent Rogelio Martinez is still under investigation -- a case that prompted U.S. President Donald Trump to renew his call for a border wall. The FBI said on Tuesday that he may have been assaulted. Rogelio Martinez, 36, died last Sunday (November 19) from injuries suffered while on patrol in sparsely populated Culberson County, and his partner was seriously injured, authorities said without naming his partner. Both agents sustained traumatic head injuries and broken bones, the FBI in El Paso said.
