Border Patrol agents from the Laredo Sector received a call from the Webb County Sheriff’s Office about a deceased migrant found on a ranch near the Texas border with Mexico. The agents responded to recover the body.

Agents from the Laredo West Border Patrol Station traveled with Webb County Sheriff’s Office deputies on the morning of August 29 to a ranch located near Catarina, Texas. The small South Texas community is located a few miles north of a Border Patrol immigration checkpoint located on U.S. Highway 83 between Laredo and Carrizo Springs, Texas.

An energy company employee notified law enforcement after he found the body of a deceased man lying face down in the sand. Border Patrol agents arrived on the scene and secured the area until Webb County Sheriff’s Office deputies and the medical examiner’s office arrived. Local officials pronounced the migrant male dead and provided transportation for an autopsy.

“Working in extreme temperatures and harsh terrain, the agents’ assistance in recovering this person represents the first step in the process of returning him to his family, helping bring much-needed closure to loved ones,” Laredo Sector Acting Chief Patrol Agent Jason D. Owens said in a written statement obtained by Breitbart Texas. “While the primary mission of the U.S. Border Patrol is to prevent terrorists and terrorist weapons from entering the United States, while also stopping the smuggling of humans, narcotics, and other contraband, our agents are often called upon to do so much more.”
