The month of July 2018 marked six years since local law enforcement agents found the bodies of two male individuals in the proximity of the Maverick County Water Canal near lateral 20 in the Thompson road area.
Since then, very few clues have emerged as to the identity of the two young males who now rest in pauper burial sites in the Maverick County Cemetery.
Last year the Mexican Consulates Office in Eagle Pass working along with Mexican officials conducted DNA testing to attempt to identify the two murdered individuals.
Nothing came back from those test conducted.and, no solid leads have been obtained regarding the death of the individuals.
The case has been cold ever since.
The Texas Rangers and the Maverick County Sheriff’s Office have tried to identify the two homicide victims found on May 22, 2012 and a $5,000 reward was offered for information leading to the arrest of those responsible for the deaths.
Authorities asked for the public’s help on both sides of the border in identifying the two male victims, who may be from Mexico.
The victims were discovered in an irrigation canal at FM 1588, which is also known as Thompson Road, north of Eagle Pass. Both men were shot in the head.
A Texas Ranger forensic artist composed post-mortem renderings of the victims to assist in the case. The victim pictured to the left was a Hispanic male between 19 and 22 years of age, 5 feet 6 inches in height, approximately 130 pounds, with wavy black hair and brown eyes. He had a barbed wire tattoo on his upper right arm and the letter “A” tattooed on his upper left arm. He also had a rubber wristband inscribed with the words “Germany” and “Brazil.”
The second victim (pictured above right) was a Hispanic male, between 17 and 19 years of age, about 6 feet tall, approximately 160 pounds, with short straight black hair, brown eyes and a mole on his left cheek near his ear. He was wearing a black string necklace with a small medal of the Virgin of Guadalupe.
