Police say Ulysses man succumbed to heat





A Ulysses man, who Texas authorities say succumbed to the heat, was found dead 60 miles from the Mexican border on June 8.

Efrain Corona Gonzalez, 38, was found at 9:30 a.m. June 8 on the side of a dirt county road near San Diego, Texas. Investigator Alan Gonzalez of the Duval County Sheriff's Office said the office received a report from a local resident, who found the deceased man.

Alan Gonzalez said dehydration from the humidity and triple-digit temperatures was a contributing factor in the death of Efrain Gonzalez, a native of Mexico.

"He succumbed to the elements," he said.
