From the Arizona Daily Star:
The bodies of 252 illegal border crossers were found along Arizona’s border from New Mexico to Yuma County from Oct. 1, 2009, to Sept. 30, 2010, the Arizona Daily Star’s border death database shows. The database is based on information from Southern Arizona county medical examiners.
The 2010 total breaks the record of 234 set in 2007. It has been a deadly decade in Arizona’s desert for illegal immigrants, with the bodies of nearly 2,000 men, women and children found since 2001.
