TUCSON - The bodies of two Mexico residents have been found in Southern Arizona in separate incidents, according to authorities.

On Tuesday, two illegal immigrants flagged down a U.S. Border Patrol vehicle on the Tohono O'odham Nation saying they had left behind someone on the trail who had become ill.

Agents retraced the men's journey and found the man dead.

Tribal police said the 40-year-old man from Oaxaca may have been diabetic since needles and insulin were found in his backpack.

On Sunday, a man studying jaguar populations in the Coronado National Forest found the body of a 37-year old woman from Oaxaca.

Santa Cruz County Sheriff Antonio Estrada said the woman apparently died of hypothermia and there were no signs of foul play.

Estrada said it was the first known death of an illegal immigrant in Santa Cruz County this year.

The names of the two victims have not been released yet.
