Eight Found Dead in Truck in Walmart Car Park

Eight suspected illegal immigrants have been found dead inside a tractor-trailer truck parked outside a Walmart store in Texas. Twenty other were in critical condition suffering from heatstroke or dehydration. The driver of the truck has been arrested and will be charged for a possible people-smuggling offense. The Western District of Texas attorney, Richard Durbin, said the victims were the result of “ruthless human smugglers indifferent to the wellbeing of their fragile cargo.” At least 38 people were in the trailer of the truck, some of them juveniles.
