Migrant body found in desert

On May 12, a Tucson physician and her son found the body of a young male in the Santa Cruz riverbed near Tubac, about a half mile east of the Border Patrol checkpoint on Interstate 19, according to a news release from the Tucson Samaritans and Green Valley Samaritans.

They called in the discovery to the Santa Cruz County sheriff’s office, which responded immediately and removed the body.

Founded 10 years ago, the Samaritans are people who provide food, water and medical aid to migrants in the Tucson sector of the borderlands and work to humanize border policy, according to the release.
