    Kimberly, from El Salvador, was last seen walking between Falfurrias and McAllen, Texas on August 9, 2012. She had crossed the Mexico/US border illegally with other undocumented immigrants. They were headed for Houston when reportedly, Kimberly got tired and could not continue. The group left her behind. Her parents, also undocumented immigrants in the United States, reported her missing.

    All of the old articles about Kimberly's disappearance seem to have been removed. I searched for Falfurrias and came up with this tho.... Disturbing, and so so sad.


    Dozens of bodies found in mass grave near South Texas border crossing
    June 23, 2014

    About an hour’s drive from the Mexican border, in cactus-covered ranch land, there’s a spot many undocumented immigrants walk through hell to avoid. It’s the Texas Border Patrol Station in Brooks County, Tex., one of the last layers of security and one of the busiest checkpoints in the state with more than 10,000 vehicles per day traveling through it.

    The journey around this checkpoint can take several days on foot, through brush country where water is scarce and heat exceeds 100 degrees in the summertime. Migrants are led for miles through private ranches by guides who get paid thousands of dollars, and then shuttled to stash houses near Houston before arriving at their final destinations across the United States.

    But many of them never make it, dying of dehydration, exposure and various illnesses somewhere along the unforgiving 30-mile route.

    Over the years, hundreds of bodies have been recovered on ranches here — and it’s the condition in which they were found that some find criminal.

    About two weeks ago in Falfurrias, a small town in the northeastern part of the county, a team of archaeologists uncovered a mass grave where many immigrants’ remains had been buried — in trash bags, shopping bags, body bags or no bags at all, researchers told the Corpus Christi Caller-Times, which broke the story last week.

    In one plot, the bones of three bodies were mixed inside of one body bag. In another, at least five bodies in bags were piled one on top of the other. Between the coffins, skulls were sealed in biohazard bags — the red ones used in receptacles at doctors’ offices.

    “To me it’s just as shocking as the mass grave that you would picture in your head, and it’s just as disrespectful,” University of Indianapolis forensic anthropologist Krista Latham told the Caller-Times.
