Friend Describes Border Patrol Agent as Dedicated Husband, Father

Posted: Updated:
A lifelong friend of the slain border patrol agent is speaking out about his death.

Robert Martinez said he is in disbelief over the death of his friend, agent Robert Rosas. Martinez said Rosas, 30, was a beloved son, husband and father who often spoke about how much his family meant to him.

"They're in shock and denial," Martinez said. "They're dealing with the situation. It comes in waves. They remember all the beautiful contributions he did and all the good memories. But there's times when it hits home and they break down."

According to Martinez, it was Rosas' lifelong dream to become a border patrol agent, and he loved what he was doing.
