40-year-old man found dead in Ocotillo windmill


YUMA, Ariz. (13 On Your Side) - A man was found dead inside the base of a windmill in the Ocotillo area, according to the Imperial County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies say Border Patrol agents found the body of a 40-year-old Honduras man--who they believe was in the U.S. illegally--at the stairwell of one of the windmills at around 2:00 pm yesterday.

Deputies do not know the cause of death, or if there was any foul play involved.

The case is currently under investigation.
