April 16, 2002|STAFF REPORT

HOLTVILLE — U.S. Border Patrol agents discovered the remains of a man thought to be an undocumented alien just east of here this morning.

County Coroner Investigator Deputy Gary Hayes said agents found the remains of a man near Nelson Pit Road and Highline Road just east of Holtville about 12:26 a.m.

Hayes said no identification was found on the body but because of the area where he was found it lead investigators to suspect the body is that of an undocumented alien.

He said it appears the body might have been in the spot for about six months because of post-mortem changes. He said the man appears to have been 20 to 30 years old.
