Border Patrol finds three deceased immigrants in Rio Grande Valley

Efforts between multiple agencies led Border Patrol agents to three deceased illegal immigrants abandoned by their smugglers in separate incidents.

Earlier today, a McAllen agent located the body of a deceased subject in Mission, Texas. The Mission Police Department responded to the scene and the local Justice of the Peace pronounced the individual deceased.

Yesterday, Border Patrol agents, BORSTAR operators, and an Air and Marine Operations helicopter, responded to a report of a possible lost subject near Falfurrias, Texas. After hours of searching, BORSTAR agents located a deceased individual.

Yesterday evening, a National Guard air asset, directed Fort Brown Agents to a possible deceased subject near Brownsville, Texas.

The RGV sector of Border Patrol urges immigrants not to jeopardize their lives by illegally entering the United States or by attempting to circumvent a checkpoint.
