TUCSON, Ariz. -- Authorities in southern Arizona are investigating
the deaths of five people whose remains were found concealed in the
desert west of Tucson.

Border Patrol agents found the remains Tuesday near Sells, on the
Tohono O'odham Reservation.

The remains won't be examined until next week, but the remains are
skeletal and were found covered partially with rocks and possibly a
tarp or bag, said Dr. Greg Hess, the chief deputy medical examiner
for Pima County.

The area is often used by smugglers and there are frequent
discoveries of remains of immigrants who die while crossing the
desert. But, Hess said, ``It's not the typical scenario of deaths
that we would see in the desert.''

Tribal police did not immediately return a call for comment, and FBI
spokesman Manuel Johnson in Phoenix declined to comment. He cited the
bureau's role in assisting the investigation being led by tribal police.

Until the remains are examined, there's no immediate indication of
possible foul play other than the manner in which the bodies were
concealed, Hess said. ``That's a little suspicious,'' he said.

The people's ages and genders weren't immediately known.

According to Kyle Estes of the Yuma Sector Communications Division,
agents assigned to the area discovered footprints crossing the Camino
Del Diablo road about two miles east of Papago Well.

Agents then began tracking the group, and with the assistance of an
Air Interdiction agent aboard a Customs and Border Protection
helicopter, they were able to apprehend seven Mexican nationals who
were carrying backpacks filled with marijuana.

"(The Mexican nationals) were apprehended about three miles north of
the Camino Del Diablo," Estes said. "They didn't get much further
past that."

Estes explained that the group was following a known smuggling route
through the Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge. He said it is the
same general area portrayed in Luis Alberto Urrea's 2004 book "The
Devil's Highway."

The case will be submitted to the U.S. Attorney's Office for
prosecution. The drugs were seized for destruction.

Yuma County residents can help the Border Patrol and U.S. Customs and
Border Protection by calling 1-866-999-8727 toll-free to report
suspicious activity. Callers can remain anonymous.

A report of two armed men in the parking lot of Robert Damon Park in
Rio Rico led authorities to the discovery of a bundle of marijuana in
a parked car.
According to a sheriff's dispatch report, an anonymous 911 caller
reported seeing two men in black shirts standing by a white Dodge
Intrepid at the park shortly after 3 p.m. Monday. One man was holding
an assault rifle and the other had a handgun, the caller said.
Five sheriff's deputies and two Border Patrol agents responded to the
scene, but did not encounter any suspects. However, the Intrepid was
still there, and officers found 9 pounds of marijuana behind the
driver's seat, according to Lt. Raoul Rodriguez of the Santa Cruz
County Sheriff's Office.
The drugs were seized and the car, which was registered to a woman
from Nogales, was impounded. The case is under investigation by the
Santa Cruz County HIDTA Task Force.

Otro violento amanecer vivió el Valle del Yaqui luego que tres
hombres, cuyas edades oscilaban entre los 17 y 23 años de edad,
