Officials believe that the migrants he was trying to save were actually drug smugglers.

Texas Rangers have determined that the two migrants a TX National Guard soldier tried to save before drowning in the Rio Grande were “involved in illicit transnational narcotics trafficking”, and are in federal custody. Soldier still missing, family notified.

Dive teams were forced to halt the search on Saturday as the current became too strong for the divers. According to Fox Reporter Bill Melugin, the current isn’t as strong in the morning hours. The search resumed on Sunday, with the addition of 3 airboats from Texas DPS, according to the release. His body was recovered on Monday morning.

The investigation will continue. Restin peace, Spc Bishop Evans.
