Family of Brian Terry ‘Frustrated’ By Fast and Furious Probe
“The family believes that we deserve that information. The American public deserves that information and we don’t understand why that information is being kept from the family, from the American public,” declared Terry’s cousin, Robert Heyer, who serves as chairman of the recently formed Brian Terry Foundation.
News of the arrest of Jesus Leonel Sanchez Meza comes nearly two years after a single 7.62 millimeter round entered Terry’s lower back, passed into his chest and perforated his aorta on Dec. 14, 2010. “Brian died in a minute or two. He bled out very, very quickly,” recalled Heyer, who described his 40-year-old cousin as having movie-star good looks with the build of an NFL player.
Two of the weapons found on the scene were subsequently linked to the failed Operation Fast and Furious in which U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents lost track of about 1,400 of more than 2,000 weapons — including AK-47s and other high-powered assault rifles — which authorities believed were headed for drug cartels in Mexico.
“We know that the weapons turned up at Brian’s murder scene and that they were carried by the men that killed Brian. What we don’t know is everything in between,” he said, noting that FBI ballistics proved inconclusive as to whether the fatal round was fired from one of the AK-47-styled assault rifles found at the scene though the weapons are capable of firing such rounds.
