The wife of an Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent slain after allegedly opening fire on his supervisor in Long Beach could not be reached for comment today and her Murrieta home seemed vacant.
Neighbors of Ezequiel Garcia, 45, and his wife Balbina, seemed reticent to speak about the couple to Patch on Sunday.
The Garcias lived in the 23000 block of Jonathan Place in Murrieta, but on Sunday the home seemed vacant and the grass was brown.
One neighbor told Patch that the Garcias were “not home and I don’t know when they will be.”
There are published reports that the couple was in the midst of a divorce.
Garcia had served as a supervisor on the Homeland Security Investigations-led Document and Benefit Fraud Task Force.
Late last week, Garcia was allegedly being counseled on the quality of his work when he allegedly opened fire on his supervisor, Kevin Kovak, 51, the second in charge of the Los Angeles bureau of ICE.
