Cops Investigate Killing of Rancher in New Mexico Border Town

STEINS, N.M. -- New Mexico state police and the U.S. Border Patrol are investigating the killing of a rancher about 100 miles from the Mexican border.

State police Maj. Scott Weaver says 68-year-old rancher Larry Link was found dead about 6:15 a.m. Tuesday outside his ranch in Steins in Hidalgo County, which borders Mexico and Arizona.

Weaver says the killing is being investigated as a homicide and there are no suspects. He declined to release any other information about the case.

But the president of the union that represents border patrol agents says Link was shot twice and his body was found next to his vehicle.

Jim Stack of the National Border Patrol Council says there's no evidence that illegal immigrants were involved in the killing.
