    On July 31, 2015, a rancher discovered the naked, decomposing body of a man, floating on the bank of the Santa Cruz River, in Rio Rico, Arizona. He is believed to have been in the water for multiple weeks before being found. With no idea who he was, they took his fingerprints, and were matched to one individual. He had been arrested by USBP after trying to cross the border (presumably), and had given the name "Joel Rallas-Ramos, and listed his birth year as 1946. Upon trying to contact his family, the authorities discovered he had also been arrested in 1987. He had also given a birth year of 1946, but he gave a different name, "Sirilio Rayas". Both names have determined to be aliases, and 4 years on, his true identity remains unknown.

    One thing I should also mention is that "Sirilio'' had been arrested by Miami LE. Why? I can only guess because he tried to enter Florida, presumably from Cuba, or somewhere in the Carribean

    Thanks, I really hope this man will be named soon. I wonder what happened to him. The fact he was found naked makes his death EXTREMELY suspicious.

    UPDATE: "Sirilio's" NamUS profile has been removed. No identification has been confirmed at this time. My thought's go out to his family, wherever they are.

    I think I found an arrest record, I sent it to Bruce Anderson of the PCOME and he was only aware of a Florida arrest record, he said that he will be calling AZDOC today.

    he may have used the inmate's identity at some point, maybe they had crossed paths. when i worked at jail, a lot of undocumented folks gave different names all the times they had minor arrests. they would come back w all names and DOBS on the livescan.
