Unidentified Body Found In Rio Grande River

EDINBURG, Texas - On December 10, 2017, Sheriff’s Investigators responded to the rural area south of the City of Peñitas in reference to a body in the Rio Grande River. Deputies met with Border Patrol agents who discovered the body.

The body was pulled from the water with assistance from the local fire departments. Sheriff’s Investigators determined it was that of a young adult male with short dark-colored hair. A Hidalgo County Justice of the Peace pronounced the death and ordered an autopsy. There were no visible signs of foul play.

The male remains unidentified and Sheriff’s Investigators are releasing pictures of tattoos on the decedent’s arms, and clothing articles: blue jean pants with a red, white and blue canvas belt, and black-in-color sneakers with black laces. One tattoo is of what appears to be two skulls on the lower forearm, another tattoo with the words “Bendic Me Mi Nina” on the upper forearm, and a third tattoo of the grim reaper on the upper right forearm.

If you have information on the identity of the deceased male, contact the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Unit at 956-383-8114. If you wish to remain anonymous, you can call the Hidalgo County Crime Stoppers hotline at 956-668-TIPS (8477).
