The Border Patrol says slain agent Nicholas Ivie had worked for the agency since January 2008 and grew up in Provo, Utah. He was 30.
His brother-in-law, Todd Davis, says Ivie worked as an emergency medical technician before joining the Border Patrol. Ivie was the youngest of five children, and often went camping, hunting and fishing with his family.
Davis said Ivie's desire to help others, and his love of the outdoors and riding horses led him to the Border Patrol, where he served on the horse patrol unit.
He described his brother-in-law as "a very selfless man with his family, with his friends, in anything he did."
Twenty-six Border Patrol agents have died in the line of duty since 2002.
