GILA BEND, Ariz. — Authorities say four men discovered dead in the Arizona
desert near Gila Bend died at least three days before their bodies were found.
The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office says two of the men carried Mexican
identification while the other two had no ID cards.
The bodies were discovered Thursday morning along Interstate 8 by Border Patrol
Sheriff’s deputies say no evidence of foul play was found at the scene.
Autopsies on the four bodies will be done in the next few days.
Authorities say one of the men was found a mile away from the others and one
naked body was discovered under some desert brush.
It’s still unclear if the men were immigrants trying to enter the country
without legal permission who didn’t survive the desert’s brutal heat.
