Chase Merritt, the business partner and friend of Joseph McStay, gave an interview to a British tabloid newspaper, saying that he wanted to speak out to help catch the McStay family's killer. The McStay family vanished without a trace in 2010. Their remains were discovered last week and San Bernardino County Sheriff's officials said the family had been killed.  Merritt told the Daily Mail  he spent more than an hour with McStay the day he and his family went missing from their home in suburban San Diego County . Merritt, who said he was also the last person McStay called from his cellphone, said he does not know anything that could help solve the family's disappearance.

The battle against illegal drugs and aliens has left unexpected casualties near the Mexican border: flat-tailed horned lizards flattened by off-road U.S. Border Patrol vehicles. Bureau of Land Management officials allege that Border Patrol agents not only kill the lizards but disregard off-limits signs and barriers, destroying archeological finds up to 10,000 years old in the Yuha Basin. The Yuha area, 25 miles north of the Mexican border, is one of four desert areas where the lizards live.

Middleweight boxer Alfredo Angulo has had some tough fights in his career, including 17 knockouts, according to the Ring , a website that bills itself as the bible of boxing. But the Mexican pugilist may not have been prepared for his latest battle that required he spend eight months in an El Centro immigration detention facility. The big question is why Angulo was detained in the first place. He reportedly overstayed his U.S. visa, but he had no criminal record, circumstances that typically aren't supposed to land someone in detention.

Padre Island National Seashore, the world's longest undeveloped barrier island, looks as if people have been using it as a dump for decades. Tons of debris swept up by Hurricane Ike last month were carried by Gulf of Mexico currents hundreds of miles to this ordinarily pristine landscape north of the Mexican border. Sections of roofs, refrigerators, loveseats, beds, TVs, hot tubs and holiday decorations litter the more than 60 miles of sand in the national park. Wildlife workers worry the trash will harm birds and other animals, including endangered turtles that nest here in the spring.

Tourists and visitors to Mexico during the holiday season will be able to obtain temporary vehicle importation permits at the Mexican Consulate in Oxnard beginning today, consul officials said. The permits, which last six months, are required of everyone, regardless of nationality, who crosses the Mexican border with a vehicle registered outside that country. In the past, the permits could only be obtained at border crossings.

U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested 707 people, mostly undocumented aliens, in a seven-hour operation Sunday at the San Clemente checkpoint, authorities said Monday. Most of the undocumented aliens were Mexican nationals who were arrested between 4 p.m. and 11 p.m. at the Interstate 5 checkpoint, Border Patrol Supervising Agent Wayne Kirkpatrick said. Kirkpatrick said those arrested were taken by bus to the Mexican border and dropped off near Tijuana.
