At President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador’s morning press conference, the migration chief said that the driver of the vehicle was identified as Homero “N”, who tried to pretend that he was one of the migrants who survived while traveling in the trailer of the truck.

He added that the INM conducted the investigation into the identity of the driver, however, it did not obtain records of his stay in the country.

He reported that three people are in custody, facing charges of human trafficking and homicide.

Garduño reported that 67 Central American and Mexican migrants were traveling in the trailer, of which 51 died of asphyxiation after being locked in without ventilation, and 39 of them were women.

He specified that the deceased migrants were 27 Mexicans, 14 Hondurans, seven Guatemalans and two Salvadorans, and there is one body yet to be identified.

The commissioner detailed that the trailer with the overcrowded migrants was located at 6:20 pm last Monday.

He pointed out that the license plate was cloned, and indicated that the vehicle was found parked on State Highway 35 in San Antonio, Texas, parallel to the railroad track that is used for the transfer of irregular migrants.

The truck passed immigration checkpoints and was captured hours earlier on security cameras at 2:50 in the afternoon. Officials from the INM and the Attorney General’s Office went to the United States to investigate the terrible case.
