MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexican authorities say a Honduran migrant has identified one of the two bodies recovered from the Rio Grande as her son. The 30-year-old man was not the body found near a floating barrier that Texas Gov. Greg Abbott had installed in the river, across from Eagle Pass, Texas. Mexico’s Foreign Relations Department said Thursday that a body found about 3 miles upriver away from the buoys has been tentatively identified as the Honduran man, but the body was badly decomposed and fingerprint tests will be needed. There is still no word on the identity of a second person whose body was found near the buoys.
