Authorities at the Big Bend National Park are trying to identify a second body found recently in the area.

Earlier this month, a visitor reported finding a body off the side of Old Ore Road.

Park rangers say the victim is a hispanic man between the ages of 25 and 35.

He did not have any identification, but he's believed to be a Mexican National.

Now, authorities believe this second body found was probably with the first victim.

Park officials are in contact with the Mexican Consulate, and are waiting for autopsy results.
