ALPINE, Texas (KTRK) — Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) special agents are investigating a human smuggling attempt in the West Texas desert that ended in the deaths of two undocumented noncitizens this past weekend, according to Cedar News.
The case was assisted by the Culberson County Sheriff’s Office and the US Border Patrol.
Two bodies were discovered on the eastbound on-ramp of Interstate 10 several miles east of Van Horn, Texas, on June 12. The two people were identified as Rosenda Gomez-Lopez, a Guatemalan, and Edgar Vividor-Rodriguez, a Mexican.
The cause of death is unknown pending autopsy results, although an examination at the scene revealed that the victims may have died from heat exhaustion or dehydration after being pushed off a car.

Burrola, special agent in charge of HSI El Paso. “Homeland Security Investigations is laser focused on ensuring human smugglers face the consequences of their reprehensible actions.”
