Bodies of 3 men found in southern Arizona desert

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Federal authorities say the bodies of 3 men have been found in the southern Arizona desert and all appear to be heat-related deaths.

U.S. Border Patrol officials said Monday that Casa Grande Station agents discovered two bodies near Quijotoa.

They say the bodies and three marijuana bundles were spotted Friday by air patrols.

The Tohono O'odham Police Department took custody of the scene.

Tucson Station agents reported finding the body of a man Saturday near Arivaca within 100 yards of a road.

The man's sister told agents her brother had fallen and was unresponsive before being abandoned by the group crossing the desert.

Authorities say the nationalities of the three men aren't immediately available.
