Tortured Body Found in Brownsville Linked to Possible Mexico Spill-Over Violence
Passersby north of Brownsville make a gruesome discovery Sunday as they find the body of a man lying in plain sight, in what could be the first official case of spillover violence from México, in Cameron County.
Homicide detectives have identified the body belonging to 43 year-old Eluterio Orduno-Barrera, believed to be a Mexican national. The victim was located off FM-511 wrapped in a white blanket bearing signs of torture. The body was taken to a Harlingen facility where autopsy and toxicology tests are being performed, as police work to notify next-of-kin.
