Colombia Frees 2 of 6 Arrested In DEA Agent Death

DEA, Federal Law Enforcement Officials Announce Results Of Major Operation

BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) — Defense attorneys say a Colombian court has freed two of the six men arrested in the death of a U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration agent.

Attorney Gildardo Acosta said Thursday that the court ruled that prosecutors failed to present adequate proof against the two taxi drivers, but he says they remain under investigation in the June 20 knifing of DEA agent James Watson, who was known as “Terry.”

Angel Mauricio Pulgarin emerged from jail to hugs and kisses from relatives and demanded that his name be cleared.

The 43-year-old Watson was attacked in an apparent robbery attempt after getting into a taxi after leaving a restaurant.

Acosta says the two drivers deny being part of the gang and had come forward voluntarily.
