Bodies of 2 immigrants found on reservation
TUCSON - The bodies of two undocumented immigrants have been found on the Tohono O'odham Reservation near the village of Queenswell, authorities said.

U.S. Border Patrol spokesman Charles Griffin said Monday that an immigrant came out of the desert and told a rancher that two people traveling with him needed help. The rancher contacted the Border Patrol.

The victims were two Mexican men in their 20s. Their identities were not immediately available.

That brings to 60 the number of immigrant deaths the Border Patrol has documented in its Tucson sector since Oct. 1, the start of the federal fiscal year.
