'Too many bodies': Desperate radio chatter about Texas migrant horror surfaces

According to a report on Thursday, an overwhelmed cop at the scene of a migrant death truck panic in Texas called desperately for aid – saying he had “a lot of bodies.”

The San Antonio Express-News said the disturbing request came because San Antonio police were using the radio to search for the driver of the tractor-trailer.

“I have a lot of dead bodies here,” the unidentified officer reportedly said.

According to recordings obtained by Express-News, police had initially estimated that 20 migrants had died in the trailer on Monday.

But officials later counted 48 people on the spot, five more people died later, taking the death toll to 53.

According to recordings obtained by Express-News, while looking for driver Homero Zamorano, who was reportedly “very high on meth” at the time, a cop broadcast his details.

“Heavy-set Hispanic male. He must have been wearing a brown shirt,” said the policeman.

Another cop reportedly said the driver may have had teardrops tattooed on his face and a tattoo on his neck, and was later reportedly described as wearing a striped shirt.

According to a criminal complaint closed on Thursday, Zamorano was identified through a distinctive black shirt with stripes and a cap that matched surveillance recordings made at an immigration checkpoint, which he allegedly found. had already passed.

A sick photo posted online on Wednesday purportedly showed Zamorano smiling as he leaned over the driver’s side of an 18-wheeler at the Border Patrol checkpoint in Encinal, Texas, about 120 miles south of San Antonio.

An alleged accomplice, 28-year-old Christian Martinez, told authorities that Zamorano was not aware that an air-conditioning unit in the trailer had stopped working, Express-News reported, citing court papers filed against Martinez, who could face the death penalty.

The documents include purported text messages between Zamorano and Martinez, including one from 6:17 p.m. – shortly after the dead migrants were discovered – in which Martinez allegedly used the code to ask Zamorano, “Where are you? Huh?”

“Vya, brother,” Sandesh reportedly said.
