Border Patrol Agents Find Three People Dead in Rio Grande Valley

U.S. Border Patrol agents encountered three deceased individuals in two separate incidents.

On Friday, agents assigned to the Weslaco station discovered a deceased individual in a water basin near Mercedes, Texas. The Mercedes Fire Department responded and extracted the body from the water. A justice of the peace pronounced the subject deceased. A forensics pathologist took custody of the decedent.

On Sunday just after midnight, McAllen agents conducting operations near La Joya, Texas, encountered a large group of illegal aliens. Upon making contact with the group, several of the subjects jumped into a canal in an attempt to evade apprehension. Agents observed two subjects that had not made it to the opposite side of the canal. Agents, along with the La Joya Fire Department, attempted to locate and rescue the pair. During daylight hours, the La Joya Fire Department discovered the two subjects, who were later declared deceased by a justice of the peace. The Hidalgo County Morgue took custody of the decedents.
