GILA BEND, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say four bodies have been found in the desert near Gila Bend.

The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office says the bodies were discovered Thursday along Interstate 8 near mile post 133.

Officials believe the bodies were likely of immigrants trying to enter the country without legal permission and who didn't survive the desert's brutal heat.

No other information was available.
