Authorities Reveal DNA Identification Process for Bodies Found Near Border
A woman who crossed into the U.S. illegally from Guatemala and disappeared prompted a search by authorities. She was part of a group crossing the Rio Grande Valley illegally. The group continued north to the checkpoint.
Border Patrol confirmed they found the woman dead. Her body is one of dozen found every year in Brooks County--still rebounding from the days when the county nearly went broke, recovering unidentified remains.
