Body of Texas National Guard Soldier Recovered Monday
A very sad ending to a truly tragic story, the body of Specialist Bishop Evans was found this morning when teams resumed their search for the missing Texas National Guard soldier.
Evans went missing on Friday while trying to assist what he thought were two migrants attempting to cross the Rio Grande near Eagle Pass. When Evans saw the two were struggling to make it across he shucked his body armor and dove in to try to help them, in that process SPC Evans went under and never came back up. The two he went into the water to help, survived. We later learned through a Texas Ranger investigation, the two "migrants" turned out to be nothing more than drug smugglers, not people seeking a better life in the US.
Obviously, SPC Evans had no idea who they were or what they were doing, he simply saw two people in trouble, tried to help them, and lost his life in the process.
Rest In Peace SPC Evans, thank you for your service and sacrifice.
