A young immigrant boy seems to be the most recent victim of the ongoing immigration crisis.
Just hours ago, Hidalgo County sheriff’s investigators responded to the area of 15th street and Texas boulevard in Hidalgo after reports of a body found in the water.
Authorities were able to pull the body from the Rio Grande River and determined it belongs to a young boy, possibly from Central America.
The boy’s age and identity were not revealed pending an autopsy to determine a cause of death.
This would be the second death involving a minor attempting to cross the border illegally in a month.
