(20 year old dies in the desert)….The death could be heat related.
The Mexican National was with a group crossing into the United States illegally, on June 20th. The 20 year old reportedly became ill and collapsed. The group left the man behind and kept walking. Deputy Coroner Steven Green says a week later the Coyote guiding the group in the illegal crossing, called the Mexican Consulate to report the 20 year old had collapsed. The Consulate advised US authorities. The remains were found in the desert, one mile South of Highway 98, about 4 miles west of Drew Road. Green said an autopsy will be conducted this week to determine a cause of death, but it is very likely the man died as a result of the extreme heat.
