Two Men Found Dead Near New Mexico Border

Sheriff's deputies near El Paso are investigating the case of two men found dead near railroad tracks.

Deputies responded to a call about the bodies Saturday and found them in a thicket of reeds behind a sheet metal shop in Canutillo. Canutillo is about 15 miles northwest of El Paso near the New Mexico state line.

El Paso County Sheriff's spokeswoman Chris Acosta identified one of the men as 49-year-old James Smith. She said his family had reported him missing last week. Officials did not release the cause of death for either man.
