“Alpha 5195, this is sector,: an officer with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection called on the radio. No one answered. In the silence that followed, the officer continued:  “Sector to all units:  Alpha 5195, Homeland Security Investigations Special Agent Jaime Jorge Zapata, is 10-7 (out of service).  May he rest in peace.
