Divers recover 2 people from Arizona canal
Two kids murdered by policy and the enforcers of the brutal regime of law and order
GILA BEND - The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office says the bodies of two suspected illegal immigrants have been recovered from a canal near Gila Bend along Old Route U.S. 80 west of Phoenix.
The Sheriff's Office said Thursday they believe these may be the two people who had jumped into the canal late last week.
Sheriff's Office spokesman Jeff Sprong says the teenagers went missing after a Sheriff's deputy pulled over a sedan carrying five illegal immigrants on a traffic violation near Gila Bend last Thursday night.
All five ran away from the vehicle and made their way into the canal. Three of the five were found later by deputies.
Authorities say the description of the clothing is consistent with what was recovered Wednesday night.
