Slain U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry honored on birthday, benefit dinner scheduled

PHOENIX - U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry would have celebrated his 42nd birthday Saturday.

Although he is not around, his family is still hoping to get answers surrounding the December 2010 events involving a suspected drug cartel rip crew that caused him to lose his life defending the border near Rio Rico, Ariz. 

Two weapons from Operation Fast and Furious are said to have been used to kill Terry and were found at the scene of his murder.

Terry's family is hoping to get answers about Operation Fast and Furious including documents, emails and information that the U.S. Justice Department won't disclose.

While still pressing for answers, the Terry family has started a foundation in his memory.

The Brian Terry Foundation will be hosting its first benefit dinner on September 17 at JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort and Spa in Tucson.

The dinner, which is open to the public, offers sponsorship opportunities and individual tickets to honor the late Border Patrol agent.
