A SUSPECTED migrant was reportedly found hanged from a tree with his feet missing near the Mexico border – and cops are probing the death as a possible homicide.
Rio Grande Valley Sector Border Patrol Sheriff Benny Martinez told Breitbart they received calls on Thursday regarding a migrant hanged by the neck from a tree in Brooks County, Texas.
Border Patrol agents and the Brooks County Sheriff's Office reportedly recovered the remains of an unidentified migrant on the tree, around 80 miles from the Texas-Mexico border.
“We have never seen anything like this in our county,” Sheriff Martinez told the outlet.
“We regularly find deceased migrants in this county, but never anything like this. This is what our deputies and the Border Patrol agents have to deal with here.”
The sheriff said the circumstances surrounding the migrant’s death were unknown.
“We aren’t sure if the migrant was hanged or if he did this to himself,” the sheriff said.
“We will have to wait on a full autopsy to figure out what really happened.”
