Luis A. Santiago

End of Watch

March 28, 1995

Border Patrol Agent (Trainee) Luis A. Santiago was working in a canyon near the Lower Otay Reservoir when he and other agents identified themselves as Border Patrol Agents and ordered the aliens to stop. The group scattered and the agents followed. Agent Santiago gave chase along the rim of the canyon, taking a narrow trail that leads to the edge of a cliff, lost his footing and fell approximately 120 feet to his death.
