Bio: Carlo was born to Jose D. Cayabyab and Resy T. Cayabyab in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. As a young navy kid, Carlo lived in South Carolina, San Jose, and final resident in Spring Valley.

Carlo was raised in Spring Valley specifically 'Crestwood' where he 'ran' the streets of Moorpark with his many life long friends. Carlo attended Loma Elementary, Spring Valley Middle School, and graduated from Monte Vista High School in 1991. He then went on to study at the University of California San Diego where he graduated with a Bachelors in Bio-Chemistry. Carlo also attended Platt College where he obtained a degree in Computer Graphic Design.

Looking for adventure and wanting to protect and serve his country, Carlo began his Federal Service in December 2002 with the Department of Homeland Security TSA. In January 2005, Carlo transferred to U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) where he spent the next 15 yrs protecting the US borders.

Carlo was a very active team member with CBP where he was involved in the ATCET (Anti Terrorism Counter Enforcement Team), Narcotics Security Detail Team, MFF (Mobile Field Force), and Medical First Responder. Officer Carlo Cayabyab received the Blue Eagle Award, which is the highest award you can receive with the U.S. Customs and Boarder Patrol.

Carlo enjoyed anything to do with the water. He loved paddle boarding, jet skiing, boating, and swimming at the 'Yabyab' ranch. He also loved his cars from his Mitsubishi Mighty Max, Lexus GS350, Toyota Tacoma 'Taco', and Dodge Mega Ram.

Carlo had many friends and one of his greatest joys was being an MC for all his DJ friends, aka Don Carlo on the MIC. Carlo loved to sing karaoke. He had a wonderful voice and always had a huge smile on his face.

Survived by:
and brother & sister.

Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location:   Tecate, CA   USA
Summary: Officer Carlo Cayabyab died after contracting COVID-19 while on duty at the Tecate Port of Entry in Tecate, California.


COVID-19, a flu-like virus, originated in Wuhan, China. Worth a mention, the Chinese Government had a biological research facility in that very province. At this point, it was widely held that COVID-19 was a bat-coronavirus and the first case was discovered in Wuhan in Oct. 2019.

On Dec. 31, 2019, Chinese authorities alerted the World Health Organization of pneumonia cases in Wuhan City, Hubei province, China, with an unknown cause. Jan 7, 2020 Chinese authorities identify a new type of coronavirus (called novel coronavirus or nCoV).

Despite deaths and an entire Chinese Province(Hubei) quarantined by the Chinese Government, the World Health Organization(WHO) simply declares a global public-health emergency. Despite this serious understatement, on January 31st, President Trump bans foreign nationals from entering the US if they were in China within the prior two weeks. Despite a large public outcry of racism, this move likely saved 1000's of American lives, it would later be deemed.

After a full blown global infection, and an entire country being declared on 'Lockdown'(Italy), on March 11th, WHO declared the outbreak a pandemic. This same day, President Trump bans all travel from 26 European countries. On Mar. 13th, a US national emergency is declared over the novel coronavirus outbreak.

On Mar. 23rd, New York City confirms 21,000 cases, making it the biggest epicenter of the outbreak in the US. On Mar. 31, more than 1/3 of humanity is under some form of lockdown. On Apr. 2nd, the world passes one million COVID-19 infections.

On April 7th, roughly 95% of all Americans are under lockdown, as 42 states issue stay-at-home orders. The entire American economy has ground to a halt. Congress passed laws awarding trillions in grants, loans and other types of assistance to the American working population and businesses.
