Remains Found In Deming

Deming – Two hunters have discovered human remains in an arroyo at Rockhound State Park.

The state Office of the Medical Investigator collected an undisclosed number of bones after Thursday's discovery and stored them for later examination.

Luna County Sheriff's Capt. Arturo Baeza says there have been no reports of missing persons in the Deming area. He suggested the bones may have been at the location for some time and could have been the remains of an undocumented immigrant.
