The FBI is investigating after a woman and three children were found dead near the Rio Grande River in South Texas on Sunday.
Border Patrol agents found the bodies of two infants, a toddler and a 20-year-old woman near the U.S. border with Mexico.
Hidalgo County Sheriff Eddie Guerra tweeted late Sunday that “deputies are awaiting FBI agents who will be leading.”
The sheriff said the bodies were discovered in Las Paloma Wildlife Management Area south of McAllen, Texas.
The deaths come as border officials are struggling to handle an influx of undocumented immigrants who are crossing the border.
