This is a major effort with the county medical examiner's office and the non-profit group Humane Borders. It is expected to be the biggest, most complete database on border deaths in the area.

It has information on the 2,000 migrant deaths recorded in the past 12 years, with each of those mapped out over the Pima County desert.

This web site is the result of ongoing partnership between the Pima County Office of the Medical Examiner, or Pima County OME, and Humane Borders, Inc. Although each organization has a distinct mission, both are committed to the common vision of raising awareness about migrant deaths and lessening the suffering of families by helping to provide closure through the identification of the deceased and the return of remains.
