FALFURRIAS, TX - MAY 21: A forensic anthropology team from the University of Indianapolis unearths the remains of unidentified immigrants from a cemetery on May 21, 2013 in Falfurrias, Texas. Teams from Baylor University and the University of Indianapolis are exhuming the bodies of more than 50 immigrants who died, mostly from heat exhaustion, while crossing illegally from Mexico into the United States. The bodies will be examined and cross checked with DNA sent from Mexico and Central American countries, with the goal of reuniting the remains with families. In Brooks County alone, at least 129 immigrants perished in 2012, the highest rate in the United States, according to forensic anthropologists.

Op een begraafplaats in Texas is een forensisch team van de Universiteit van Indianapolis bezig met de opgraving van de resten van meer dan vijftig ongeïdentificeerde immigranten. Zij overleden, vaak door uitputting en hitte, terwijl ze illegaal de grens tussen Mexico en de Verenigde Staten probeerden over te steken. De onderzoekers hopen de lichamen te herenigen met families in Mexico en Centraal-Amerika.
