Posted on 06/07/2010 12:55:38 PM PDT by metmom
Arizona authorities found two bodies near a common illegal border crossing Sunday, not far from where a deputy was shot last April, MyFoxPhoenix.com reports.
Emergency dispatchers in Pinal County reportedly received a 911 call Sunday night from a man saying he and his friend had been shot before the cell phone signal was lost.
Officials later found the bodies and two weapons, described as a long gun and handgun, according to the station.

Not likely illegals? That leaves drug dealers and coyotes so either way it’s no big loss.
If this means that 2 American citizens were murdered, then the military has to close and control the border IMMEDIATELY.
And I don't care who thinks it's racial profiling.
Have you seen Lou Dobbs’ report on the Amnesty bill???
Our lame a** President is refusing to defend our nation against the ongoing invasion. As Jorge Bush failed before him.
We need a government that actually wants to protect us. Don’t have one now.
Would illegals tend to dial 911? Wondering if these are US citizens...

Having lived in a barrio, illegals don’t call 911. Which is funny since the cops in our area were more likely to protect them and charge the Americans.
I would be these men were Americans.
That area is way north of the border, but is on a heavy drug smuggling corridor. It is possible these were US citizens KIA in the Border Wars.
I haven’t seen much on this yet, just a news flash. More needs to come out.
The article didn’t say it was not likely they were illegals- it said it wasn’t clear. If they were not illegals there are still many possibilities. May not be illegals if tatoos seemed to be local- though just because they are local to the area does not mean they are not long-term illegals. Could be people just goofing around or locals that ran into smugglers. Most of the time bodies found on the border are either illegals or some variety of bad guys, but not always. Sometimes innocent people are just in the way of illegal activities.

It’s the way of the future, yes, but it has always been the way of the past too...for me!
Illegals that run into trouble do call for help, in this area there are towers set up so they can communicate with Border Patrol if one is hurt or in desperate shape from the elements- or just wants to give up and get back home. Many illegals now do carry cell phones- and do call for help if they need it. These might have been long-term illegals as opposed to illegals that crossed right before being killed.
There really is no telling what the situation is with them, until more comes out. The tatoo issue would make it seem they aren’t ranchers- but even some of the younger ranchers have tats now.
Maybe the RINO’s and LaRaza should put together a think tank and figure out which is worse?
Thanks for the info, I do recall about them often having cell phones.
All it's going to do is strengthen the support behind AZ's new immigration law.
For clarity, to all: this happened about 1.5 miles south of I-8 at a point nearly 70 miles from the border. The article is poorly written on this point.
Later news reports this afternoon said that they were both Hispanic - the call came in to 911 in Spanish.
Sorry - no access to the Ping list for a few more days. That's what I get for taking a vacation.
Either way, murder near the border that’s illegal related is murder near the border.
It’s not going to do anything so calm the situation.
Thank you for the ping. Sad FRegards ....
