EDINBURG, Texas (AP) — Border Patrol agents have found the bodies of two immigrants in rural South Texas on a day when temperatures topped the 90s.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials on Tuesday announced the deaths and warned about the dangers of human smuggling during the summer heat.
A CBP statement says the Kenedy County Sheriff's Office received an anonymous call about a body at a ranch. The caller described the location, which assisted agents in locating the victim on Friday.
Agents in McAllen, working in the brush near Havana, discovered another body later Friday.
Authorities did not immediately release additional information about the victims.
The National Weather Service predicted highs in the upper 90s on Tuesday for parts of far South Texas.
