A number of federal agencies helped with the investigation into the murder of Montoya. The probe was led by Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), and assisted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), the FBI, the United States Marshals Service, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI), the Garden City Police Department, Effingham County Sheriff’s Office, and the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office.

“If Homeland Security Research and has repeatedly said – HSI a moment to focus his workplace enforcement on those who illegally work in the U.S., as well as the employers who knowingly hire them,” said HSI Atlanta Special Agent in Charge Nick S. Annan, according to the outlet.

“This case is an extreme, but a clear example of how far some criminals looking to illegally exploit the U.S. labor market will go to protect their loot, and illustrates why worksite enforcement remains an important priority for HSI.”
