2/28 Grand Paraire, TX: neo-nazi ICE agent kills self in standoff with police
- Standoff ends with ICE agent's suicide in Grand Prairie
By ANABELLE GARAY
Associated PressFebruary 28, 2008GRAND PRAIRIE, TX: An Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent killed
himself after an armed standoff with an officer and three colleagues,
Grand Prairie police said Wednesday.
Police discovered a suitcase full of pornography, a flag bearing a
swastika and more than a half dozen weapons after finding Mark Juvette
dead early Wednesday. Juvette, 40, was an agent with ICE's Dallas Office
of Detention and Removal, which transports detainees, manages them while
in custody and deports illegal immigrants.
ICE officials did not comment on Juvette's death or the items confiscated.
A police officer was sent to Juvette's apartment Tuesday night after
co-workers expressed concern. An ICE official told police Juvette called
in sick about a week ago, saying he had a heart condition. Juvette
hadn't been heard from since, according to a police report.
The police officer, accompanied by three ICE agents, knocked on the door
of Juvette's apartment and said he was checking on his well-being. One
of the agents, Juvette's partner, also knocked at the door for about 30
minutes but received no answer, the report said.
Juvette began shooting at them through the door. Negotiators entered the
apartment and found Juvette dead from a gunshot wound. The Tarrant
County Medical Examiner ruled his death a suicide.=================================================================
