(Two make a gruesome discovery)…They were walking a dog Wednesday evening.

 When they reached a canal near Rockwood and Highway 98, they discovered a body in the way. They immediately notified the US Border Patrol. The County Coroners office says they were called at 7:35 Wednesday evening. Chief Deputy Coroner Thomas Garcia said when he arrived on scene it did not appear the man had been dead for very long. Garcia said it is suspected the man, in his 30’s to 40’s, is suspected of being an illegal immigrant. He said his office is working with the Mexican Consulate in Calexico to try and identify the man. Garcia said an autopsy is pending to determine the exact cause of death.
