A US Border Patrol agent suspected of killing four women was arrested after a fifth woman managed to escape from him
Luera was rushed to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead from her injury.
A woman allegedly abducted by Juan David Ortiz had been able to escape and alert officers, according to local media reports.
Ortiz was arrested after the fifth woman managed to flee.
Cops say all the murders took place when he was off-duty and in his vehicle - a white four-door Dodge truck.
"When she tried to escape from him at a gas station that's when she ran into a (state) trooper", he said.
He is alleged to have carried out the killings within the past two weeks.
"We have very strong evidence that he is the person who has been killing", Webb County Sheriff Martin Cuellar said at a news conference posted on KGNS's Facebook page. Police are investigating for a fourth one.
The first was Melissa Ramirez, 29, whose body was found on September 4.

Ortiz, Chapa said, was picked up in the early hours along Interstate 35 in Laredo. Police did not disclose her cause of death.
Two years ago, a senior Border Patrol agent stationed farther north up the border in Del Rio, Texas, was taken into custody and charged with distributing child pornography and attempting to entice a minor to engage in sexual activity. Earlier this morning officials were dispatched to another part of the County where a third body was discovered.
In another case, from 2014, a Border Patrol agent in Texas kidnapped, attacked and sexually assaulted three unauthorized immigrants: a woman and two teenage girls from Honduras.
The Webb County District Attorney's Office told reporters that all of the victims were prostitutes. He said all the women worked as prostitutes and investigators were trying to find a motive for the killings. Authorities said they believe Ortiz acted alone.
A U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesperson confirmed Ortiz is a supervisory Border Patrol agent.
While it was not agency policy to comment on the details of an ongoing investigation, Meehan said, criminal conduct by CBP employees is not, and will not be, tolerated.
He referred questions about the investigation to authorities in Webb County and to the Texas Department of Public Safety, whose Texas Rangers are also investigating.
