Posted: Updated:
FALFURRIAS (Kiii News) - The eyes of the world are now on Brooks County after the shocking discovery of immigrant remains found buried in trash bags at a cemetery in Falfurrias early this month.

Some of the remains were mixed in with other immigrant remains, in the same bag; and in some cases, multiple bags were buried in the same grave. Now, the Texas Rangers are looking into the matter.

On Wednesday, the Brooks County Commissioners Court, Sheriff's Department and District Attorney's Office threw their full support behind the inquiry. Kiii News Reporter Mike DaSilva was there and came back with the details.
