Authorities in Maverick County found the bodies of two men in their underwear dumped in a canal Tuesday morning.
The men haven't been identified, said Chief Deputy Sheriff Ruben Cano. The bodies have been taken to San Antonio for autopsies.
One of the men had a large cut on his neck and was wrapped in plastic bags, and may have been killed somewhere else, Cano said. The second victim appeared to have been killed in the canal north of Eagle Pass, he said.
Sheriff's investigators, who are working with the Texas Rangers, don't have any leads and haven't found any evidence of an organized crime connection, Cano said.
Piedras Negras, across the Rio Grande from Eagle Pass, has suffered from cartel-related violence in recent years, and Eagle Pass itself has been used as a smuggling point for the San Antonio-based Mexican Mafia prison gang. But homicides are rare in the county of 54,000.
I would say we average maybe one or two a year, Cano said. But this is unusual to have a double homicide.
I've been thinking that in about ten more years, the grotesque mass homicides will be over on this side of the border.
Once the gunny sacks full of decapitated heads start showing up in Los Angeles, and cargo vans stacked high with bodies left on busy avenues in Kansas City for shock value, the media won't be able to sweep these stories under the rug anymore.
I have ten dollars that says (and that'll be about the cost of a Big Mac in ten years, mind you) that when these crimes do become commonplace here, the mainstream media will still be up to their old tricks like not mentioning the nationality/race of the corpses. Golly, they could be anybody!
That is according to Big Sis and 0 bummer. I suggest both of them go to the border without any security.
Yeah, Cano, ya got a whole year's worth of homicides in one night. Polish your badge and carry on.
