The Brooks County Sheriff’s Office in southern Texas reported the recovery of three migrant bodies on ranches surrounding the Falfurrias Border Patrol Checkpoint on U.S. Highway 281 this week. The total number of migrant deaths in the county 80 miles from the Mexican border is now 33.

Brooks County Sheriff’s Office dispatchers sent Deputy Robert Castanon on August 21 to a ranch south of the checkpoint near Encino regarding the discovery of two bodies. The area is where smugglers will drop off migrants to attempt to circumnavigate the checkpoint.

The article goes on to state the following:

The deputy arrived at the ranch where a Border Patrol agent escorted him approximately 11.9 miles. At the scene, Deputy Castanon observed the near skeletal remains of two migrants who appeared to be in similar states of decomposition.

One set of remains had identification, which indicated they were of a Honduran man named Henry Geovany Escobar Chirinos, 21.

Another body had identification for a Guatemalan man named Bayron Tobar Valdez, 24.

The other set of remains had no ID.

Brooks County deputies have recovered 33 migrant bodies or remains over the first 8 months of 2019, officials report.
