Nicaraguan migrant found dead in Texas with T&T phone number in pocket

US authorities who discovered the body of a Nicaraguan migrant into Texas this week, say that among the things they found on him was a phone number for someone in Trinidad and Tobago.

The man, identified as 42-year-old Ledis Jose Ortez Herrera, was found dead 80 miles from the border with Mexico.

He was the fourth migrant from Nicaragua to have been found dead in the last two weeks.

Brooks County Sheriff’s Office Commander Jorge Esparza reportedly found two identification cards from Nicaragua and Mexico.
