EL PASO, Texas (AP) - Sheriff’s deputies near El Paso are investigating the case of two men found dead near railroad tracks.

Deputies responded to a call about the bodies Saturday and found them in a thicket of reeds behind a sheet metal shop in Canutillo. Canutillo is about 15 miles northwest of El Paso near the New Mexico state line.
