Border Deaths Database – Arizona Daily Star

With no official record-keeping system, the exact number of illegal border crossers who died along Arizona’s stretch of U.S.-Mexican border has never been known…In the summer of 2010, the Arizona Daily Star updated existing cases in the database with new information from the medical examiner’s offices; such as names, ages, hometowns and cause of death. The Arizona Daily Star also retrofitted the database to include deaths from 2001-2003 from the Pima County Medical Examiner’s Office, the only office that tracked border deaths during those years. The data originally went back to October 2003.
