However, he acknowledged that they have located the bodies of migrants, but under other circumstances: “We found dead migrants in this county, but never anything like this. That’s what Border Patrol agents have to deal with in this area, “he said.

The hanged migrant committed suicide or was it homicide?

In the words of Benny Martínez, he attributes the increase in the crossings of migrants across the border to the policy of the Biden government, which is being a bit more ‘permissive’: “I can only suspect, or I can assume that it is due to the rhetoric of the current administration, that (migrants) can enter… ”, he assured.

Despite the fact that last year 34 deaths were recorded in that Brooks County, the finding of the migrant hanging near the border with Mexico, has been the only case that is suspected as homicide, that is, that it is investigated merely as a crime .
