A dead body covered in a sleeping bag has been discovered at the Triangle T. Ranch east of Benson.  Spokeswoman Carol Capas with the Cochise County Sheriff’s Office says the ranch owner called 9-1-1 after finding the body of a man on his driveway.  The owner provided security camera footage that show

a light-colored, newer model GMC pickup truck entering the driveway late Friday night and leaving about three minutes later.  Capas says “the initial investigation indicates that the deceased subject suffered some type of medical condition while traveling through the area and the other occupants dumped the person, either still alive or deceased, and then left the area.”  An ID card was found on the body indicating he was a 36-year-old man from Nayaert, Mexico. The Sheriff’s Office is working with the Mexican Consulate to ensure next of kin notification is being completed. The investigation continues.
