Mexican National Drowns In Rio Grande

Amistad National Recreation Area

National Park News

On Friday, April 16th, rangers received a report of a body floating in the Rio Grande River. They found the body of a 20- to 35-year-old man about 32 miles upriver from the Amistad Dam. He had no identification; all he had in his pockets was a pack of Mexican brand matches and a packet of Tang. An autopsy was performed and he was found to have died from drowning.  Photos and DNA samples were taken and the Mexican consulate contacted in hopes of identifying the man.  The Val Verde County Sheriff’s Office is leading the investigation.
