It's seems futile to identify remains of bodies that have died in the Southern desert, spend hundreds of hours trying to identify them and I wonder how much money the Mexican Gov. spends to help pay for all the forensic lab work. None of course. Family's leaving their homes in South America should be warned of the consequences of breaking into another Country. These death's have lot's of stories behind them, and one should be, don't cross the desert or the Rio Grande.Don't sneak into the US without permission. period.
