The Pima County Medical Examiner is responsible for examining the deaths of anyone who dies within three Arizona border counties and who is determined to be someone crossing the border without documentation. This is the only area in the county where this work is done along a wide area of the U.S. border. The Medical Examiner takes us through their work to attempt to determine identification and cause of death of each person. He discusses the unique challenges faced by his staff in this work and their efforts to provide information to family members of those who die.
