Inspector George Azrak and Inspector Theodore Newton were shot and killed after being abducted from a traffic checkpoint on Highway 79 near Oak Grove, California. The ensuing investigation determined that the two had stopped a vehicle with over 800 pounds of marijuana. While searching the vehicle they were overpowered and taken to a remote cabin in a deserted mountainous area. The two had been handcuffed together and were shot and killed as they lay on the ground. Their bodies were found two days later.

Four subjects were arrested in connection with the murders one month later. Two of the men were sentenced to 30 years in prison and were released in 1980. The other two were sentenced to life in prison. One of those two was paroled in 1998 and the remaining suspect was denied parole in 2006.

Inspector Azrak had served with the Border Patrol for one month.
