(Body found late Wednesday morning)…It was discovered on the property of the Mesquite Landfill.

The Supervisor at the Landfill near Highway 78, was doing a perimeter check when she discovered the dead body. The County Coroners office says the time of the discovery was 10:15 Wednesday morning. They say the male body is being listed as a John Doe. The only speculation is that the person may have been an illegal immigrant who had wandered onto the property. The man had been dead about two weeks before it was discovered. A Forensic Autopsy is pending to try and answer the outstanding questions surrounding the John Doe.
