GRAPHIC: Body of Decapitated Migrant Child Found in Texas Border River — Mexican Authorities Suspect Alligator Involved

PIEDRAS NEGRAS, Coahuila — Mexican authorities responded to the headless body of a young migrant girl who they believe drowned in the river and then was partially eaten by alligators. The discovery took place Wednesday near the Morelos neighborhood by fishermen on the Mexican bank of the Rio Grande.

Investigators with the Coahuila Attorney General’s Office and local police responded to the scene to document and collect the body. The unidentified girl’s head, an arm, and pieces of skin were missing.

Investigators believe alligators are responsible for the mutilation. The girl is supposed to have been one of the thousands of migrants who crossed the Rio Grande during the current border surge.

Official figures from the Coahuila State Government account for 82 migrants who drowned or died in 2021 along the Coahuila-Texas border.
