    Feds: Mexican boy dies crossing Arizona desert with mother

    A 3-year-old boy from Mexico died while crossing the desert southwest of Tucson with his mother, according to the U.S. Border Patrol.

    The boy's body was left behind by the unidentified woman, who later told border agents about his death, authorities said Tuesday.

    Authorities are waiting for an autopsy to be conducted to determine the cause of death and whether any charges will be filed against the mother, said Jesus Rodriguez, a spokesman for the Border Patrol's Tucson Sector.
    Agents apprehended the woman early Monday about six miles west of Sells and she later told authorities that she had left her son in the desert and he was dead.

    The body was found about 3 a.m. Tuesday on the Tohono Oodham reservation southwest of Tucson, Rodriguez said.

    The woman is in Border Patrol custody and the Mexican Consulate has been notified of the incident, authorities said.

    That is a tragedy - but not an accident.

    If I took my 3 year old son out in the desert and he died - I would be culpable in his death. Unless someone abducted them both and left them there, she knew what she was doing.
